Humans' capacity for culture is the key to our success, an anthropologist argues - Macleans.ca

Humans' capacity for culture is the key to our success, an anthropologist argues - Macleans.ca | new society | Scoop.it
Robert Boyd is Origins Professor at Arizona State University’s School of Human Evolution and Social Change and the co-author of Not By Genes Alone (2005), which sets out his case for what’s known as dual inheritance, the co-equal importance of genes and culture in shaping the human story. Boyd believes most evolutionary theories do not come close to answering the fundamental question in human development: we were just another ape species a few million years ago, he points out, so how did we come to be established in every ecological niche on Earth by 10,000 years ago? Most answers focus on human cognitive power—our genetic endowment of intelligence conquers all. But in A Different Kind of Animal, Boyd argues we are not that smart on our own. Human populations have huge bodies of knowledge individuals could never have figured out: collectively we are much smarter than the sum of our parts. It’s culture—considered, crucially, as a biological trait—that gives humans the ability to learn from each other and solve the vast array of problems that confronted us as we spread across the globe.

This Is Why WeWork Is Buying Meetup | Backchannel

This Is Why WeWork Is Buying Meetup | Backchannel | new society | Scoop.it

As a company, Meetup has long embraced its position as a small, mission-driven operation. While other social software companies from the Web 2.0 era, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, focused on keeping their users on their sites for as long as possible, Meetup’s purpose was always to get people off the internet. By connecting people to one another, Meetup would entice them to get offline and go walk their pugs together, practice speaking French, or organize for Howard Dean.

In the age of billion-person platforms that encourage users to make thousands of connections, it seemed quaint, even old-fashioned, and certainly inefficient. It was a lot harder to scale the act of organizing people—personally, around common interests—than it was to grow a company that focused on digital interactions, none of which required that people leave their couches. As those companies added users and sped toward initial public offerings, Meetup stayed focused and tiny. CEO and cofounder Scott Heiferman was never in a hurry. The last time he raised funds—in 2008—he selected patient investors like Pierre Omidyar and Esther Dyson, who believed businesses should also contribute meaningfully to society. “Our number one priority was independence and to live within our means,” says Heiferman. “Our number two priority was growth.”

So I was surprised to learn that Meetup has just sold itself to the poster child of hyper-growth: WeWork. After raising $4.4 billion from Softbank’s humongous Vision Fund, WeWork is now valued at close to $20 billion, putting it in league with Uber and Airbnb as one of the most highly valued private US tech startups. (There are new reports surfacing that WeWork executives traveled to Israel over the holidays to raise more money.)

WeWork’s cofounder and CEO Adam Neumann is rushing to build out a company that endeavors to control the future of physical space. Its executives talk in sweeping terms about an addressable market that encompasses every last square foot of office space in the world. (“Tokyo is a billion. New York City is 400 million. Kansas City is 50 million.”)

What on Earth is the Doughnut?…

What on Earth is the Doughnut?… | new society | Scoop.it

Humanity’s 21st century challenge is to meet the needs of all within the means of the planet. In other words, to ensure that no one falls short on life’s essentials (from food and housing to healthcare and political voice), while ensuring that collectively we do not overshoot our pressure on Earth’s life-supporting systems, on which we fundamentally depend – such as a stable climate, fertile soils, and a protective ozone layer. The Doughnut of social and planetary boundaries is a playfully serious approach to framing that challenge, and it acts as a compass for human progress this century.

The hottest startups in Helsinki

The hottest startups in Helsinki | new society | Scoop.it
After a lean few years following Nokia's decline and economic recession, Finland's capital is feeling confident. "The maturity of the scene has developed," says Miki Kuusi, co-founder and CEO of food-delivery startup Wolt.


Signs of growth are everywhere, from IPOs for game firms Remedy and Next Games to a 2016 increase in early-stage investment of 42 per cent in 2016, taking the total amount raised to €383 million (£337m). Add to that several notable acquisitions – including the sale of sleep-tracking startup Beddit to Apple for an undisclosed sum in May 2017 – and the positive vibes seem justified. "It's still very early for Helsinki," says Kuusi, "but the overall direction seems very promising."

Capitalism isn't broken – but it does need a rewrite

Capitalism isn't broken – but it does need a rewrite | new society | Scoop.it
In the 1990s, economists indulged heady hopes that globalisation would raise all boats via unfettered free market activity. Now, but a generation later, many are having second thoughts. That’s because global free markets, while indeed maximising GDP for all concerned, have also ushered in staggering rates of inequality together with a looming threat of irreversible climate change from increased greenhouse gas emissions.

Some scholars are going so far as to blame capitalism itself. James Hickel argues that “there’s something fundamentally flawed about a system that has a prime directive to churn nature and humans into capital, and do it more and more each year, regardless of the costs to human well-being and to the environment we depend on”. But what should come in its place is anyone’s guess. Capitalism is the culprit and there’s an angry band of revolutionaries ready to ditch the idea in favour of something entirely new — starting with granting inalienable rights to nature itself, as Hickel himself suggests.

While certain reforms may sound refreshing, we might not want to reach for such desperate measures as dismantling an economic system that has managed to bring us unprecedented access to cutting-edge technology, information, and medicine at eminently affordable prices. Besides, capitalism at its root isn’t so much about greed as basic self-interest. And each of us is self-interested to some degree. This is a fact of biology we ignore at our peril.

Managersonline.nl - Tien beroepen van de toekomst | new society | Scoop.it
7 september 2017 - De voorspelling is dat technologie veel banen met eentonige handelingen over gaat nemen. Er blijven dan vooral banen over die veelzijdig zijn en veel verandering bieden.

Opleiding en ontwikkeling van specifieke vaardigheden spelen in de baan van de toekomst een belangrijke rol. Konica Minolta ziet dat banen en technologie in ontwikkeling blijven en dat er meer flexibele deeltijd- en freelance-banen ontstaan.
Toch is het moeilijk om te voorspellen wat de banen van de toekomst precies inhouden. Voorheen was technologie vooral een vervanging van de oude manier van werken. Maar als computers de capaciteit ontwikkelen om te leren en te denken, biedt dat volledig nieuwe mogelijkheden. Uit een onderzoek van de universiteit van Oxford blijkt dat 40 procent van de huidige banen verdwijnt door automatisering. Hierdoor zijn er meer mensen beschikbaar voor andere taken, zoals het werken aan duurzame projecten.

Silicon Valley has been humbled. But its schemes are as dangerous as ever | Evgeny Morozov

Silicon Valley has been humbled. But its schemes are as dangerous as ever | Evgeny Morozov | new society | Scoop.it

Just a decade ago, Silicon Valley pitched itself as a savvy ambassador of a newer, cooler, more humane kind of capitalism. It quickly became the darling of the elite, of the international media, and of that mythical, omniscient tribe: the “digital natives”. While an occasional critic – always easy to dismiss as a neo-Luddite – did voice concerns about their disregard for privacy or their geeky, almost autistic aloofness, public opinion was firmly on the side of technology firms.

Silicon Valley was the best that America had to offer; tech companies frequently occupied – and still do – top spots on lists of the world’s most admired brands. And there was much to admire: a highly dynamic, innovative industry, Silicon Valley has found a way to convert scrolls, likes and clicks into lofty political ideals, helping to export freedom, democracy and human rights to the Middle East and north Africa. Who knew that the only thing thwarting the global democratic revolution was capitalism’s inability to capture and monetise the eyeballs of strangers?

How things have changed. An industry once hailed for fuelling the Arab spring is today repeatedly accused of abetting Islamic State. An industry that prides itself on diversity and tolerance is now regularly in the news for cases of sexual harassment as well as the controversial views of its employees on matters such as gender equality. An industry that built its reputation on offering us free things and services is now regularly assailed for making other things – housing, above all – more expensive.

We need to listen to our future citizens. Here’s how to tune in – Thomas Wells | Aeon Essays

We need to listen to our future citizens. Here’s how to tune in – Thomas Wells | Aeon Essays | new society | Scoop.it

Given the ferocity with which he opposed it, the Irish philosopher and statesman Edmund Burke is not often accused of radicalism. Yet here he is, writing in Reflections on the Revolution in France (1790):

Society is indeed a contract… a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born.
Though it might not look it, this is a profoundly radical thought. We already have a device with which to represent the wishes of past generations. Constitutions, the voices of our history, do not chain us to the past, for they can always be outvoted, but they do have a powerful influence on what our societies do now. We lack any such mechanism for considering the interests of future generations. And this is a trickier problem than might at first be obvious. Indeed, the very structure of reality seems to conspire against us.

While we might feel a sense of solidarity with past and future generations alike, time’s arrow means that we must relate to each other as members of a relay race team. This means that citizens downstream from us in time are doubly disadvantaged compared with the upstream generations. Our predecessors have imposed – unilaterally – the consequences of their political negotiations upon us: their economic regime, immigration policies, the national borders that they drew up. But they were also able to explain themselves to us, giving us not only the bare outcome of the US Constitution, for example, but also the records of the debates about the principles behind it, such as the Federalist Papers (1787-88). Such commentaries are a substantial source of our respect for our ancestors’ achievements, beyond their status as a fait accompli.

Gedachtenlezen en hersenhacking: is zelfs ons brein straks niet meer privé? - Richard van Hooijdonk

Gedachtenlezen en hersenhacking: is zelfs ons brein straks niet meer privé? - Richard van Hooijdonk | new society | Scoop.it
De ontwikkelingen in de neurotechnologie zijn verder gevorderd dan je je waarschijnlijk realiseert. Zo heeft Philips bijvoorbeeld een werkend ‘proof of concept’ voor hersengestuurde elektronica als televisies. Deze geavanceerde technologie stelt mensen met beperkte motorische controle als gevolg van ziekten als ALS in staat om weer wat zelfstandigheid terug te krijgen. Deze apparaten zijn afhankelijk van een geavanceerde brain-computer interface (BCI) die de piepkleine elektrische hersenimpulsen van een gebruiker kan lezen en vertalen in opdrachten die de elektronica kan begrijpen. Deze ontwikkelingen zijn voor mensen met beperkingen natuurlijk wonderbaarlijk.

Een ander voorbeeld van potentiële toepassingen van neurotech is neuromarketing. Neurowetenschappers en onderzoekers gebruiken functionele magnetische resonantie beeldvorming (fMRI) om hersenactiviteit te meten en te zien hoe we denken als we worden blootgesteld aan reclame. De resultaten geven marketeers directe toegang tot onze reacties op advertenties en afbeeldingen. Met deze informatie kunnen ze hun producten of verpakkingen aanpassen. Deze scans worden door sommigen zelfs beschouwd als een nieuwe vorm van leugendetectie, hoewel experts zich afvragen of ze nauwkeurig genoeg zijn om aan juridische en ethische eisen te voldoen. Maar het moment dat we fMRI’s gaan inzetten bij het veroordelen van criminelen zal waarschijnlijk niet lang op zich wachten.

Collective Intelligence Is the Root of Human Progress

Collective Intelligence Is the Root of Human Progress | new society | Scoop.it

Many of us intuitively think about intelligence as an individual trait. As a society, we have a tendency to praise individual game-changers for accomplishments that would not be possible without their teams, often tens of thousands of people that work behind the scenes to make extraordinary things happen.

Matt Ridley, best-selling author of multiple books, including The Rational Optimist: How Prosperity Evolves, challenges this view. He argues that human achievement and intelligence are entirely “networking phenomena.” In other words, intelligence is collective and emergent as opposed to individual.

When asked what scientific concept would improve everybody’s cognitive toolkit, Ridley highlights collective intelligence: “It is by putting brains together through the division of labor— through trade and specialization—that human society stumbled upon a way to raise the living standards, carrying capacity, technological virtuosity, and knowledge base of the species.”

Ridley has spent a lifetime exploring human prosperity and the factors that contribute to it. In a conversation with Singularity Hub, he redefined how we perceive intelligence and human progress.

Raya Bidshahri: The common perspective seems to be that competition is what drives innovation and, consequently, human progress. Why do you think collaboration trumps competition when it comes to human progress?

Change Management Is Becoming Increasingly Data-Driven. Companies Aren’t Ready

Change Management Is Becoming Increasingly Data-Driven. Companies Aren’t Ready | new society | Scoop.it

Data science is becoming a reality for change management, and although it may not have arrived yet, it is time for organizations to get ready. The companies best positioned to change in the next decade will be the ones that set themselves up well now, by collecting the right kind of data and investing in their analytics capacity.

The key to building predictive models is knowing what you want to predict and collecting large and diverse data sets that may enable you to do so. Although predictive models for change management are still a ways off, organizations can get themselves on the right path by adopting the right tools and capturing the right data. We see five no-regrets steps that organizations can take:

Start Using Digital Engagement Tools
There is a new generation of real-time employee opinion tools that are starting to replace old-fashioned employee opinion surveys — tools that tell you far more than just what employees think every year. These tools have obvious relevance to change management and can help answer questions like: Is a change being equally well received across locations? Are some managers better than others at delivering messages to employees?

We are working with a large travel and tourism firm to introduce a system for real-time employee feedback. This is giving us the opportunity to experiment with different change strategies within chosen populations in the company. The real-time feedback means we will learn very rapidly how communications or engagement tactics have been received, thus optimizing our actions in days rather than weeks, as might be the case with traditional approaches. This data can then feed into a predictive model, helping us know with precision the actions that are going to accelerate adoption of a new practice, process, or behavior by a given employee group. Commercially available tools, such as culture IQ polls, sample groups of employees through a smartphone app on a daily or weekly basis to generate real-time insights. Waggl.com goes further, creating an ongoing conversation with employees about a change effort, allowing change managers to tie this dialogue to the progress of initiatives they are undertaking. These tools can already have a big impact on change programs, but the data stream they create could be even more important as we learn to build predictive models of change. Deploying them now is critical to ensure success with data-driven change initiatives in the future.

Digital Health Is A Cultural Transformation Of Traditional Healthcare Through Disruptive Technologies - The Medical Futurist

Digital Health Is A Cultural Transformation Of Traditional Healthcare Through Disruptive Technologies - The Medical Futurist | new society | Scoop.it

The authors of the paper argue that digital health means a qualitative change on the horizon of healthcare transforming its very nature. And while it comes down to the countless disruptive technological innovations that are flooding the medical field in the last couple of years, the essence of this change is not technological, but cultural.

Technological transitions have taken place in healthcare before, explains the paper, but this is the very first time that they lead to a meaningful transformation of the status quo. When personal computers became widely available in the 1990s, e-health emerged. When such computers could be connected into networks, telemedical services appeared. The rise of social media networks gave space to medicine 2.0 and health 2.0; while penetration of mobile phones and later smartphones summoned mobile health. But from the 2010s, the rate at which disruptive technologies appear is inducing a qualitative change for both the patients and their caregivers.

The paper calls this new phenomenon “digital health”, and define as "the cultural transformation of how disruptive technologies that provide digital and objective data accessible to both caregivers and patients leads to an equal level doctor-patient relationship with shared decision-making and the democratization of care'.
 
The authors describe that the use of technology only leads to better health outcomes if the related cultural challenges are acknowledged and the new needs of patients are met. That’s why we needed this definition – as part of acknowledging the changes around us.

Teenagers Are Avoiding Sex, Alcohol, And Driving Like Never Before, Says New Study

Teenagers Are Avoiding Sex, Alcohol, And Driving Like Never Before, Says New Study | new society | Scoop.it

Teenagers Are Avoiding Sex, Alcohol, And Driving Like Never Before, Says New Study
Netflix and actual chill.

CHRIS WELLER, BUSINESS INSIDER
20 SEP 2017
Today's teenagers don't seem to care much about hitting the open road, scoring a six-pack with a fake ID, or asking their peers out on dates.

According to a recent study from psychologists Jean Twenge and Heejung Park, teenagers instead prefer to sit at home, say no to drugs and alcohol, and scroll through a litany of social media apps.
The study, published in the journal Child Development, analysed survey responses from 8.3 million teenagers given between 1976 and 2016. Overwhelmingly, today's teens were found to be less likely to drive, work for pay, go on dates, have sex, or go out without their parents.

"This isn't just about parenting," Twenge told Business Insider. "It's also about teens themselves and the economy and fertility rates and people living longer."

Of course, since the study's conclusions are based on personal survey responses, the findings may not apply broadly to all of Gen Z. There are also bound to be members of the generation for whom the traits don't apply, as with any demographic study.

But Twenge chalked the findings up to an overall shift in the way society has operated. She is the author of iGen: Why Today's Super-Connected Kids are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy - and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood.

The book explores the conditions in which today's youth are being raised. Contrary to popular belief, Twenge said, teens aren't lazy or square - they're a product of their environment like every other generation.

In the mid-20th-century, she said, people adopted what evolutionary psychologists call a "fast-life strategy." Lifespans were shorter, work was more imperative, and so kids grew up relatively quickly without as much supervision from their parents.
By the year 2000, though, the US had taken up a "slow-life strategy."

Gerade mal zehn Jahre ist es her, dass sich das Silicon Valley als der clevere Botschafter eines neuen, cooleren, menschlicheren Kapitalismus vermarktete. Schnell stieg es auf zum Liebling der Eliten, der internationalen Medien und jenes mythischen, allwissenden Stammes: der "digital natives".

9 Ideas Shaping The Future Of Design, According To Ideo, Microsoft, Autodesk, MIT, And More | new society | Scoop.it
Co.Design asked a handful of the 2017 Innovation By Design Award recipients and honorees working in technology, branding, experience design, architecture, urbanism, product design, and industrial design about the ideas that will impact the industry the most in the next few years. Of primary concern to many individuals? If the current trajectory of design will lead us to a better world or plunge us deeper into our pool of problems, redefining what “better” means, and taking a closer look at who is benefiting from design.


1. DESIGNERS WILL BECOME “MUTAGENS”
“Architects and designers worldwide are confronted with a very interesting choice: Borrowing Buckminster Fuller’s words, we could say that our profession is in between ‘utopia and oblivion.’ It will be oblivion if we continue focusing on minor aesthetic problems. However, it might turn into utopia if we are able to tackle the major societal challenges of our time, starting from the issues of equity.

“In order to achieve the latter, we will also require a different approach. I would argue for a paradigm shift from the ego-fueled visions of architecture of the 20th century to a collaborative, inclusive, network-driven process inspired by 21st-century, digital-driven trends such as crowdsourcing, open access, and mass customization. I think the architects and designers today are well placed to play an orchestrating role, what we could define as a ‘choral’ one: being the ones who can coordinate several voices, harmonizing them into a better ensemble.
