Haley Groseclose's curator insight, March 6, 3:43 PM

The use of AI's are becoming a lot more common within the office. With the AI you can essentially eliminate the more "boring" aspects of an office job, but it can also take away jobs. The AI's more modern use is to predict and collect data, often getting better answers than a worker could produce. They mention in the article how there could be two outcomes when having an AI in more offices. One way could either be that the AI simply takes over the (again)boring aspects of the job, or it will take jobs altogether, not only those of a lower ranking job but of higher paid staff as well. I find the second outcome to be more likely, people tend to misjudge projects such as this and do't consider what the consequence will be.

john dimitriou's curator insight, March 26, 6:58 AM

Asking students to create or identify themselves through an avatar to explain how something works or how it is made allows students to package information in a way that it helps them to unpack knowledge. Becoming personally and emotionally invested helps to engage learners. They take ownership.

In SecondLife, I love the ability to take in-world snap-shots and post them to my avatar's feed.  And, I really like being able to send private messages (they aren't lost or capped, like in-world communication can be).  But the 'new' SL web profiles aren't perfect and the author gives a thoughtful review on where the faults lie and how they could be improved.

How Prescriptive Analytics Could Harness Big Data to See the Future | TELEPRESENCE AND VIRTUAL PHYSICAL BODY | Scoop.it

Big Data—information sets too large to be effectively computed on desktop systems—isn't just the buzzword du jour. It provides an unprecedented ability for business and industry to precisely model the effects of past managerial decisions on the bottom line. But an emerging analytical process called prescriptive analytics could help companies not only learn from previous decisions, but predict and plan for upcoming issues as well. It's Big Data evolved, and could change how the world does business.
