These Are the Greatest Driving Innovations to Come From Formula One | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Physics effects every sport, from baseball to swimming. But when your sport features machines in competition, science can become even more important. One need look no further than how race cars have changed over the years for proof.

You have race cars to thank for the first reliably steel disc brakes, and the carbon-fiber discs current F1 cars use will probably make their way to normal cars once production costs get low enough. But perhaps the biggest innovation was ground-force engineering.

3 important data questions about smart buildings | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
We have long used data to improve our buildings’ performance and to inform building planning and operations. Building automation systems have replaced the manual operation of most large commercial buildings and energy models using data from existing buildings have been instrumental in informing energy codes and retrofit practices. Nevertheless, there’s still a lot to learn. Declining costs for metering systems, new automation capabilities and the advent of cloud computing are creating enormous opportunities that we haven’t fully captured.

Why Technology Is Not How You Will Retain Your Staff

Why Technology Is Not How You Will Retain Your Staff | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
Adecco's Global Talent Competitiveness Index (AGTCI) may not be everyone's bedtime reading but it does make for an interesting read.  Measuring the movements of talent as the labour workforce is disrupted by machines, Millennials and other factors should be on any executives mind.  Why?  The amount of money to replace an employee (while amounts vary per research) is around $20,000 (some say closer to $40,000).  Understanding why talent comes and goes could save billions if more companies fixed the issues the most recent AGTCI outlines.

Industry 4.0 Is Coming...

The fourth industrial revolution is almost here, but is a world still largely shaped by the Victorian era ready for it?

In the last 150 years the UK has lived through three industrial revolutions. The first, and by far the most famous, between 1760 and 1840, was unprecedented in the way it influenced a way of life that remained largely unchanged since medieval times. The second industrial revolution involved the widespread introduction of steel to the UK, early electrification of factories and the introduction of mass production and the production line. The third (or digital) revolution took place towards the latter half of the twentieth century, and saw industry make the switch from mechanical and analogue electronic technology, to digital electronics.
