The future of data, technology and the Internet

Everybody is talking about 'data is the new oil' aka big-data. SoLoMo (social local mobile) is the battle cry of the day. Human-machine interfaces are rapidly evolving and may quickly become commonplace (think Google Glasses, MSFT Kinect), artificial intelligence is the geek-phrase-of-the-day, and Kurzweil says the singularity is near/here. So how will our world really change in the next 5 years, i.e. the way we communicate, get information, create, buy and sell, travel, live and learn? What are the biggest threats and the hottest opportunities - not just in financial terms, but also in societal and human terms? Futurist Gerd Leonhard will share his foresights and explore the key 'networked society' scenarios"
Via Szabolcs Kósa, Dr. Stefan Gruenwald
Chanelle Savich's insight:

Gerd is easy to listen to, and he talks about data as a resource that has to be refined in order to be useful (just like you can't take crude oil out of the ground and put it in your car).

 

He talks about inferred data that Google gets about you through your searches--you're looking for info on a disease or certain symptoms? Bet you've got it, even if you haven't told anyone yet. Google knows.  

 

Gerd says that we should create an ecosystem so that data pays for itself--if you take out more than you put in, the ecosystem eventually fails. Create an ecosystem around data that takes care of itself and keeps itself replenished. Big oil never takes care of fixing the atmosphere; it keeps sucking the money out of oil without taking care of the world, and so the movement is away from oil use. 

 

There needs to be an information economy. Think globally.

Thanks for your insight into that. Reality forces us to self-correct ... hopefully in time....

Why Inquiry Learning is Worth the Trouble

Why Inquiry Learning is Worth the Trouble | Transliterate | Scoop.it

In a true inquiry-based model, how learning happens isn’t as important as whether that learning encourages students to try to learn even more. Lehmann compared the scenario to the plight of atwo-year-old child who has graduated from “yes” and “no” and proceeded onto an endless string of “why’s.”

 

“To me it comes down to process,” Lehmann said. “Inquiry means living in the soup. Inquiry means living in that uncomfortable space where we don’t know the answer.”

Tavi Gevinson: A teen just trying to figure it out | Video on TED.com

Fifteen-year-old Tavi Gevinson had a hard time finding strong female, teenage role models -- so she built a space where they could find each other.
Chanelle Savich's insight:

Books, a blog, TED talk, Colbert interview -- teens and pre-teens can see writing in action, multimedia, self-expression, and a high school sophomore who is using these avenues because she has something to say. She wasn't from a famous family; she garnered attention because she stepped outside of the minimum requirements, thought about the world, the media, and her place in society and went beyond wishing she could express herself. She did it. And people noticed. Tavi is a transliterate teen; can we help other teens take the plunge and express their strong opinions on things which matter to them?
