Why Machines That Can Do Human Things Won't Replace Us Anytime Soon

Why Machines That Can Do Human Things Won't Replace Us Anytime Soon | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

As technology advances at an unprecedented rate, now performing tasks typically reserved for human creativity, one realizes just how special human beings are and how inadequate technology can be.

Dr. Dan Kirsch's curator insight, July 15, 2013 2:19 AM

This might not appear to be directly "pointed" at the challenges of knowledge management but consider the fact that people actually prefer "browsing" over "searching" and you should begin to understand some of the fundamental challenges of successful Knowledge Management implementation.  

 

There is no software which allows for a person to learn, find, experience, and so on in the same way that we do naturally using our senses.  Clearly a "search" capability is fairly worthless when an organization lacks a taxonomy, doesn't understand the basic concepts of meta tagging and so on.  

 

However, it is probably a bigger "neglect" to lack those KM necessities that feed to and on our abilities as people -- for example, expertise locators (to find people), socialization opportunities (to draw people), mentoring programs (to nuture & develop people).  Each of these types of activities feed "browsing" as in developing people and their relationships we allow for mutual exploration -- for me to learn what you know, what you think AND what you feel about a subject or issue (which can help me to understand why something is important and no search engine will ever be able to fully make that connection).

 

This article does hit the KM problem nail squarely on its head.  All too often organizations approach KM implementation as if they are trying to, in that sense, "replace" us.  Simply throw it all into a repository.  Marvel at "big data." Job then "done." And in doing so organizations then ignore the people side of things and fail to grasp that the purpose of any KM tool should be to make better people.  To find ways to bring us together, to find each other, to learn more about what you already know.  

 

The key to a better KM implementation is to remember that the person sitting next to me knows by far more than "big data" will ever ever account for and in ways that big data will never be able to capture or understand.  And accessing that knowledge "interface" is as easy as starting a conversation.

How to Read a Patent

Patents are complex documents that bury a handful of important sentences under a mountain of fluff and jargon. If you’re going to read a patent (and I urge you not to) you might as well start with the important parts, and read them correctly.

Apple Watch newest “watching industry” entry

Apple Watch newest “watching industry” entry | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

First, let me admit my bias. I wear a gorgeous 14k gold Swiss watch everywhere but in the water. The thought of replacing it with an Apple Watch would, for me, feel like replacing a great dinner with brightly colored and beautifully shaped nutritional tablets. Was that why Apple’s share price failed to rise following Apple Watch’s debut today?

Still, the Apple Watch may find a great market if we shake off the history of “the watch,” a noun denoting a time-telling device, and avoid viewing it as a wrist smart phone. Instead, let’s think about the new entrant as a “situational mobile solution for watching” (the verb). What are some of the situations in which an Apple Watch could provide significant customer value?

How Can We Measure Success With Open Innovation?

Many organizations are adopting Open Innovation and Crowdsourcing as ways to generate new products or services. Opening up your innovation initiatives to outsiders is seen as more effective than relying solely on your internal R&D or marketing departments. However, because this approach is so new there is a dearth of guidance on how to measure the success of open innovation activities.

Setting the stage for Innovation: Inspiration is rule number one.

You don’t need me to tell you why innovation is important. The Status Quo is boring, and no great fortune was ever built by playing it safe. To step out of the pack and escape the average and mundane, companies of tomorrow need to bring something new to the table. Peter Drucker once said that the purpose of a business enterprise is “to create a customer.”

Time for innovation to make sense and for humanity to step on the path to progress once more

Time for innovation to make sense and for humanity to step on the path to progress once more | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

On Monday evening I listened to Etienne Klein’s thought-provoking talk at Les [im]pertinents in Paris: “is there a future for the idea of progress?” A physicist and philosopher of science, Klein is a strong advocate of the role of science as an engine of innovation but observes that in our so-called post-modern society the link between science/innovation on the one hand and human progress on the other hand appears to be increasingly tenuous, if not severed, in the minds of people.

The Hidden Innovation Barriers: Company Culture and your Brain | Innovation Management

The Hidden Innovation Barriers: Company Culture and your Brain | Innovation Management | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it
When you ask Executives what they want beyond short profit and revenue growth they’ll likely say ‘more innovation’. Why? Because they face unprecedented business challenges. Let’s look back. The current modern corporation was invented about 100 years ago – at the start of the 20th century. That’s when the big companies were born like the US railroad companies, US Steel, the big banks, IG Farben. Some exist still today (GE).

Michael Gold's curator insight, June 3, 6:40 AM

Perhaps with the shift in ethos coming with the millennial workforce there will be a deeper understanding that innovation is a cultural value that encompasses many different and interdependent conditions. It's ironic that these same thoughts were stated by Mary Parker Follett in "The Creative Experience pub. 1930 when she said: “Through circular response we are creating each other all of the time. . .  ‘I’ can never influence ‘you’ because you have already influenced me.”
