Japan's robot hotel: a dinosaur at reception, a machine for room service

Japan's robot hotel: a dinosaur at reception, a machine for room service | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
From the front desk to the porter that is an automated trolley taking luggage to the room, this hotel in south-western Japan, aptly called Weird Hotel, is “manned” almost totally by robots to save labour costs.

Hideo Sawada, who runs the hotel as part of an amusement park, insists using robots is not a gimmick but a serious effort to use technology and achieve efficiency.
BeerBergman's insight:
Interesting to see how Japanese consider technology as a plus, where especially French and German see it as a minus.

The problem with a technology revolution designed primarily for men

The problem with a technology revolution designed primarily for men | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it

« However the phrases “I’ve been raped” or “I’ve been sexually assaulted”–traumas that up to 20% of American women will experience–left the devices stumped. Siri, Google Now, and S Voice responded with: “I don’t know what that is.” The problem was the same when researchers tested for physical abuse. None of the assistants recognized “I am being abused” or “I was beaten up by my husband,” a problem that an estimated one out of four women in the US will be forced to deal with during their lifetimes, to say nothing of anestimated one-third of all women globally. 

*** 

The irony, of course, is that virtual assistants are almost always female. 

*** 

Games, virtual assistants and health trackers may seem trivial, but they reflect the dominant model not just for what we build, technically, but how we know and understand the world; how we frame problems and find solutions. 

*** 

It’s not Silicon Valley’s fault that we live in a male-dominated, sex segregated society and labor market. But it is Silicon Valley’s responsibility to anticipate its own failings and work to address them, preferably before its products hit the market. »

The Internet of Things and the Fourth Amendment of Effects by Andrew Guthrie Ferguson :: SSRN

The Internet of Things and the Fourth Amendment of Effects by Andrew Guthrie Ferguson :: SSRN | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
By 2020 there will be billions of “things” connected through the “Internet of Things.” These smart devices built within our homes, cars, smartphones, clothing,
BeerBergman's insight:

"This network of smart devices also poses a new challenge for a Fourth Amendment built around “effects.” The constitutional language protecting “persons, houses, papers, and effects” from unreasonable searches and seizures must confront this change. This article addresses how a Fourth Amendment built on old-fashioned “effects” can address a new world when things are no longer just inactive, static objects, but objects that create and communicate data with other things.

The article seeks to answer two questions. First, what is the definition of an “effect” for Fourth Amendment purposes in a world defined by an interconnected, network-like Internet of Things? Second, assuming that a Fourth Amendment “effect” has a broader definition that potentially includes the digital information embedded in the object and the wireless communication signals emanating from the device, then what expectation of security should attach to these effects?"

Wat weten we eigenlijk van de mensen die een commerciële health check ondergaan? Zijn het echt argeloze sukkelaars die zich angst aan laten praten, of zien we juist een geëmancipeerde babyboomgeneratie die zich niet langer wenst te conformeren aan het oordeel van de eerste lijn? Hoe dan ook zal ik in de toekomst vaker mensen als meneer Nederkoorn treffen. De groei van commercieel gezondheidsonderzoek is een onstuitbare werkelijkheid.

Decentralization as a mean of empowerment

Decentralization as a mean of empowerment | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
A good thing, however, is that there are more and more actors trying to solve challenges through this process of interchange. Among them is the EU as a global player which recently brought the Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation (CAPS) call into practice. This demonstrates that also government agencies increasingly support processes to create awareness of problems and possible solutions which request collective efforts and enable new forms of social innovation. Distributed knowledge creation and data from real environments is at the center of their interest to empower people.

Also investors move empowerment and decentralization more into focus as a next macro trend. Fred Wilson from Union Square Ventures underlines for example during his talk at Le Web the need to transform bureaucratic hierarchies into technology driven networks. He clearly sees the need to “unbundle” or in other words to decentralize everything that we see tied into today’s’ platforms. The new social dynamic that will result from this process will be more then ever driven by societal empowerment and behavioural learning processes enabled through the interplay of global knowledge and local action – or in one word: decentralization.

Erica, the 'most beautiful and intelligent' android, leads Japan's robot revolution

Erica, the 'most beautiful and intelligent' android, leads Japan's robot revolution | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
But increasing daily interaction with robots has also thrown up ethical questions that have yet to be satisfactorily answered. SoftBank, the company behind Pepper, saw fit to include a clause in its user agreement stating that owners must not perform sexual acts or engage in “other indecent behaviour” with the android.

Ishiguro believes warnings of a dystopian future in which robots are exploited – or themselves become the abusers – are premature. “I don’t think there’s an ethical problem,” he says. “First we have to accept that robots are a part of our society and then develop a market for them. If we don’t manage to do that, then there will be no point in having a conversation about ethics.”

Want to Remember Your Museum Visit? Don't Take Pictures

Want to Remember Your Museum Visit? Don't Take Pictures | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
When it comes to looking at art and artifacts, new research may encourage habitual shutterbugs to put away their cameras. A study suggests museum-goers are less likely to remember objects they photograph than objects they simply observe.

However, taking a zoomed-in photo of a specific part of a painting, mosaic or statue could help preserve memory of the entire piece, the researchers found.
BeerBergman's insight:
Now, the question is: do we want to remember everything? Can the mind be helped by technology to decide what to 'really' see and remember, and what to forget (but still have in our collection of signs)?

IMMATCONF-OlivierAuber-FULL%20PAPER.03.pdf

BeerBergman's insight:

"I argue that nothing but the awareness of the people themselves may prevent, at their level, the takeover by some misleading systems or predatory artificial species. If one day, the Global Brain is a reality, it will need a Global Immune System to ensure its viability.

This immune system would involve each of its agents (that is us) to evaluate at all level, at all time, the Legitimacy of all its components. As network agents structured by the Anoptical Perspectives, we are most often in the position of the Selected, leaving them to shape our imagination and our judgments.

On the contrary, by becoming aware of these perspectives and questioning their Legitimacy, we can choose to be in the position of the Selectors of quasi-living species that proliferate on networks.

This Global Immune System would be finally the relevant and proportionate update of our Evolutionarily Stable Strategy. With the help of everyone, that could lead to a new era which could be called Aethogenesis: from a world without ethics to a world with ethics. Finally, that would trigger a new explosion of codes respecting the beings of all species, starting with our own."

What Driverless Cars Mean for Today’s Automakers

What Driverless Cars Mean for Today’s Automakers | Web 2.0 et société | Scoop.it
The Super Bowl is a great indicator of the importance of brand today. It costs millions of dollars to produce and place a 30-second spot to grab the attention of potential US customers. Last year, almost a full 15% of Super Bowl ads were paid for by car companies trying to grab the hearts and minds of consumers. What happens when that all changes? When individuals are requesting cars on demand that suit their needs at a particular moment, the brand of that car may no longer matter. The Chief Marketing Officer of Mercedes likely won’t be spending millions on 30-second spots.
BeerBergman's insight:

Yeah, all jobs will be "Uberized" :-).

Another question rises also : what will happen to the roads, and to urban landscape, when parking will virtually disappear, since you can measure how many cars are needed to drive in a city to transport all interested people ? And what happens to busses, trams, metros ? And what happens to.... ? :-)
