Why The Future Of Technology Is All Too Human

Why The Future Of Technology Is All Too Human | Content curation trends |

While the past favored those who could retain and process information efficiently, the future belongs to those who can imagine a better world and work with others to make it happen.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Very inspiring piece which reminds me of the Humanrithm concept we developed at as technology develops, humans have to adapt.

As great content curators show, when filtering is a process that can be automated, two things happen:

- success comes by using a combination of automation and human judgement (like the amateur chess players who beat the supercomputer in the article)

- there is a shift of value towards building meaningful connexions around content with a human touch.

Messages for all of us humans?

Don't try to be a robot but focus on what makes us humans: relationships. Let's build our communities of interest!

While I understand some people wish everything was a computer.  The vast majority of humans need a physical and emotional connection...something "artificial intelligence" cannot give you.

I believe that we have to recenter the human machine relationship, and this must be done from school, letting young kids learn that they control the machine, and not the other way round.

Computational thinking and critical thinking are for humans.

Humanrithm: why data without people is not enough - and how algorithms lost the Content Curation battle

These are the slides of my talk at DataWeek 2012.

This is what is it was about: "We engineers love data and algorithms. They help create amazing things. But if and when we forget that people create data and that data can be improved by people, we will miss the promise of Big Data. It's time we all thought of this not as social vs algorithm but as Humanrithm."

And I also took the example of Content Curation as a case study.

Love this quote "Content marketing and curation is like Star Trek chess. You are playing a game in many dimensions simultaneously."
