Throughout the history of the Internet, there has been an evolution of web standards.

Due to these transformations, today, “the number of devices connected to the Internet exceeds the number of people on Earth.”

This infographic wakes up a desire for a unified online experience in the future. Developers for mobile, tablets, laptops, TV:s, cars, intelligent homes and all other potential devices that will be connected in the future must rethink their urge to get a quick fix and find a seamless way for humans to use technology.

Teaching robots new tricks by demonstration without programming

Teaching robots new tricks by demonstration without programming | UX of the Future | Scoop.it

Maya Cakmak, Georgia Tech, spent the summer at Willow Garage developing software that allows users to program the robot through demonstration.

 

Like computers, robots only do what we program them to do. And that's a big problem if we're ever going to realize the dream of practical robot helpers for the masses. Wouldn't it be great if anyone could teach a robot to perform a task, like they would a child? Well, that's precisely what Maya Cakmak has been working on at Willow Garage.

 

Cakmak, a researcher from Georgia Tech, spent the summer creating a user-friendly system that teaches the PR2 robot simple tasks. The kicker is that it doesn't require any traditional programming skills whatsoever – it works by physically guiding the robot's arms while giving it verbal commands.

 

After inviting regular people to give it a try, she found that with few instructions they were able to teach the PR2 how to retrieve medicine from a cabinet and fold a t-shirt. Such tasks may be easy for us, but for a robot they are very difficult. That's why most scientists don't take the threat of a robopocalypse very seriously just yet – they know how difficult it is to get a robot to do anything even remotely useful.

4 Steps to Map a Digital Strategy

4 Steps to Map a Digital Strategy | UX of the Future | Scoop.it

Creating a digital strategy, or any strategy for that matter, you need to:

#Know where you want to be

To decide on your destination, consider how various digital capabilities – email marketing, social media, paid search, and so on – will help your business accomplish its near term business goals and longer term strategies.

Bring knowledge of your business objectives to a strategy session.

Combine them with industry and competitor research, knowledge of your customers, and analysis of digital trends to define your 'Desired Future'. 

 

#Know where you are at

With your destination in mind,  examine and document the relevant aspects of you 'Current State'.

A thorough assessment of your current state will include more than a listing of your websites and eBusiness IT projects. It will include a look at your governance, culture, processes and capabilities as well. It is also likely that your desired future will have impact on the culture and processes of Marketing and Operations; impacting Sales and Product Development.

 

#Understand what separates you from your goal

Perform a 'Gap Analysis' by determining how the various aspects of your current state need to change in order for you to reach your desired future.

 

#Determine how to get there

Take the initiatives list into a planning session and prioritize them against competing priorities and put together a multi-year program, a 'Digital Roadmap'.

 

Hopefully, this roadmap will guide you to your future state by addressing the gaps you’ve identified

Plan to routinely revisit and update your strategy and roadmap.

Social Media and the Devolution of Friendship: Part I » Cyborgology | UX of the Future | Scoop.it

I don’t know about you, but when I get this question from a friend, my answer is usually “no.” No, I don’t see everything my friends post on Facebook—not even the 25 or so people I make a regular effort to keep up with on Facebook, and not even the subset of friends I count as family. I don’t see everything most of my friends tweet, either; in fact, “update Twitter lists” has been hovering in the middle of my to-do list for the better part of a year. And even after I update those lists, I probably still won’t be able to keep up with everything every friend says on Twitter, either.

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, December 17, 2012 3:29 AM

The Internet has given storytelling a new lease of life. The web series has given life to a new breed of film production, social networks have given us the ability to freely interact online with others, whether they are people, or companies and augmented reality has given us the chance to interact with characters and objects.


Here is a great artikel worth reading if you have anything to do with storytelling or just love it. @safegaard

World first: Chinese scientists teleport data, laying the groundwork for quantum computing — or interplanetary Internet

World first: Chinese scientists teleport data, laying the groundwork for quantum computing — or interplanetary Internet | UX of the Future | Scoop.it

Interplanetary Internet, anyone?

While NASA is busy extending the Internet to outer space by increasing fault-tolerance and caching for packets traveling long distances over long periods of time, Chinese scientists are helping invent something that could make communication between Mars and Earth even more reliable. Or help create the next generation of quantum computers.

I’m talking about data teleportation. Data has been teleported before — as far as 89 miles — but never between two large, physically visible objects.

So the scientists at Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences in Anhui, China entangled photonic quantum bits in a quantum memory node, sent one of the entangled particles to another quantum memory node via an optical cable, made changes to the spinwave state of the nearby photon, and observed the same changes happening in the remote photo.

If you understand this, you’re a genius. Stop reading immediately and create a Star Trek-style matter teleporter, charge the world royalties, and retire as the richest human in the history of the world.

The stupid translation — meaning one I can understand — is that some super-smart geeks mysteriously connected two tiny particles so that they want to be twins but cruelly separated them. They then made changes to Mike (the nearest one) and observed equivalent changes automatically happening in Ike (the farthest one).

Last year, Vizzuality, Hyperakt, and members of the Google Chrome team worked on a visualization of web technologies and browsers. Since it was warmly received by the community, we decided to make a new version, using some of the latest web technologies to provide a fresh and distinctive experience.

 

In addition to updating the visualization with new browser versions and web technologies, we built a secondary visualization to show the growth of internet users and internet traffic worldwide.
