What is Wirearchy ?

What is Wirearchy ? | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
We all know and understand hierarchy - the enduring principle of the institutions that govern us and in which we work and live.
Jon Husband presents us a new emerging organizational principle, called Wirearchy.

The Internet is connecting customers, employees and communities and empowering them with information in ways never before possible. Taking decisions and managing organized activities are being impacted in powerful ways by interconnected networks of people and technology.

The impacts we're experiencing are creating new dynamics in organizations as well as emergent forms of organized activities that are based on participation and peer-to-peer interaction. As people get used to operating in these new conditions, often (but not always) the results are nimble, responsive, and results-focused networked groups and teams.

The new interconnected environment demands new principles for organizing collaborative activity. Traditional hierarchy does not lead and support networked activity as well as newer forms and principles.

And ... over the last ten years, it has become quite clear that the impacts of these living social networks will only grow, both in depth and reach.

The Best #Web #Resources for #Makerspace Project Ideas - Global Digital Citizen | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
Makerspaces are becoming a big deal for schools all over the world. In these unique areas, student ingenuity takes the lead. From primary to senior grades makerspaces drive innovation, creativity, and critical thinking. Since their popularity is increasing, you can source makerspace project ideas from lots of educators and entrepreneurs who have had success with them.

If you’re new to the idea, this video gives a simple description of what makerspaces are. The key ideas behind them are geared toward creativity and problem-solving. This is why they’re on the rise in education (and why shop class isn’t just for the big kids anymore).

AI May Soon Replace Even the Most Elite Consultants - something like a #GoogleAssistant or #Siri or #Alexa for business solutions

AI May Soon Replace Even the Most Elite Consultants - something like a #GoogleAssistant or #Siri or #Alexa for business solutions | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

The bottom line: corporate leaders, knowingly or not, are on the cusp of a major disruption in their sources of advice and information. “Quant Consultants” and “Robo Advisers” will offer faster, better, and more profound insights at a fraction of the cost and time of today’s consulting firms and other specialized workers. It is likely only a matter of time until all leaders and management teams can ask Alexa things like, “Who is the biggest risk to me in our key market?”, “How should we allocate our capital to compete with Amazon?” or “How should I restructure my board?”

The Internet of Things may transform our lives or even spell the end of Capitalism. In any case it requires a new business mindset - Ecosystem Thinking #IOT | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

The notion of value creation and capture is a core component of business and the models that drive it. While historically viewed with a traditional product mindset, several emerging forces will alter this basic tenet of business.

Inspired by brain’s visual cortex, new AI utterly wrecks CAPTCHA security #AI | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

In a recent issue of Science, a Bay Area startup called Vicarious AI describes an algorithm it created that is able to take minimal training and easily handle CAPTCHAs. It also managed general text recognition. Vicarious' secret? It modelled the structure of its AI on information we've gained from studying how the mammalian visual cortex processes images.

From now on, every time you answer a CAPTCHA you will have to wonder if it is really a useful way to prevent machines from accessing systems, given that this new tool does as good a job as a human at guessing what the twisted series of letter are...

Et s’il y avait un FabLab dans chaque établissement scolaire ?

Originaire du MIT, où il apparaît en 2001, le concept de fablab désigne les ateliers numérique, ouverts à toutes et tous, reliés au sein d’un réseau international. Il permet de prototyper, créer ou produire à l’aide d’outils numériques. Il s’agit d’un lieu d’échange et de partage de compétences, de connaissances et de savoir- faire. A l’ère du numérique, l’école doit se réinventer pour que les élèves acquièrent certaines des compétences clés du XXIème siècle telles que la collaboration, la créativité, la résolution de problèmes complexes et la pensée informatique. L’apprenant peut apprendre en tant qu’innovateur, co-construire ces savoirs grâce et avec l’environnement qui l’entoure. Comme le souligne le conseil national de l’innovation pour la réussite éducative dans son dernier rapport, ce type de tiers-lieu est une des réponses concrètes pour créer un modèle d’établissement adapté aux défis du XXIème siècle. Cet article présente deux cas concrets, : le Fab Lab du collège Louise Michel à Clichy sous Bois et le Fabulis du Lycée Henri Nominé de Sarreguemines, qui témoignent de l’attractivité du modèle dans les établissements...

WHY IT MATTERS: facial recognition + social networks allow tools like this one to surface: take a picture of someone on the train and find their personal pictures on social networks. For now, only Russia and China allow this, I would expect this to be a business killer app for augmented reality glasses: the glass continuously takes pictures and overlays the LinkedIn profile of people you meet in business context. I would install that without thinking about it twice!
