IT is grappling with how to protect sensitive data, making the state of data privacy worrisome no matter how big ...
Esther Schindler's insight:
Smaller companies care about data privacy just as much as big ones do, but they’re ill-equipped to do much about it. What’s different is not the perceived urgency of data privacy and other privacy/security matters. It’s what companies are prepared (and funded) to do about it.
Enterprise organizations already struggle with the mass of data they need to manage and everyone knows that – “big data” buzzwords notwithstanding – it’s only going to get worse. As it turns out, a physics analogy may help you visualize the data problem and approach better solutions.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has thoughts on a lot of things, from the demise of lecture halls to the awesomeness of the patent system. He took the stage at the company’s annual Faculty Summit — a two-day affair where researchers get together and talk about computer science — to answer questions from former Microsoft Research head (now part of the operating sytem team) Rick Rashid and the audience about all of them. Here are the highlights.
Gates talked a lot about the issue throughout the Q&A session, and his hypothesis is simple: Education in the United States is broken — it has the highest higher-education dropout rate among rich countries — and MOOCs can help fix it. In fact, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has invested a lot of money into the education field (to the chagrin of some experts), including strong support of Massive Open Online Course, or MOOC, startups such as the Khan Academy.
Gates acknlowedged during the session that some of his work might have unintended, negative consequences, but not this one. “In the education space,” he responded to a question from the audience, “I frankly don’t see that much of a downside.”
Online courses can give students access to new areas of study that can align their skills with high-paying jobs. They can even help physical institutions personalize student learning through gathering data about attendance, engagement, real-time understanding of the subject matter and other things. They can give those few elite minds responsible for such great inventions even easier access to new knowledge.
But, Gates acknowledged, we’re also a way out from online education achieving its full potential. We need to develop better understanding of what makes a good online course (“just sticking a camera in front of someone … who has a captive audience [won't cut it]“) and how to replicate non-lecture experiences like lab time and study groups. We also need to figure out how to supplement the cognitive and social development that comes along with attending school in person (although, he noted, MOOCs might also be able to help teachers focus on these things).
“We’re at the beginning of something really quite profound,” Gates said, “even though the temptation to oversimplify it is really quite great.”
