The Bigger Picture - TrendWatching

The Bigger Picture - TrendWatching | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

Trends provide powerful answers to the huge question you’re wrestling with: ‘what will my customers want next?'


And if we have one secret, it’s the counter-intuitive insight at the heart of our trend methodology. To anticipate what your customers will want next, don’t simply ask them (faster horses anyone? ;). Don’t feel you have to study them obsessively (who has the time or money to do that these days anyway?). And don’t just crunch their data (no matter how ‘big’ your data, it’s best used for validation and optimization rather than to inspire truly disruptive leaps). Instead, look at the innovations – new products, services, campaigns and more – that consumers are lavishing attention on now.


Yes, that’s right. The key to actionable foresight lies in looking at the overwhelming onslaught of innovations that now whiz past our eyes and across our screens every day....

The Agency Of The Future: Why It's Not What You Think It Is

The Agency Of The Future: Why It's Not What You Think It Is | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

You’re trying to imagine what the agency of the future looks like. You’re thinking about bringing video production in-house. Or merging a tech company with a consulting practice. Or freelancing media and emphasizing content marketing.

I would advise you to stop doing this, because you’ll just go crazy and end up right where you started: focusing on what the agency of the future looks like. As marketing leaders continue to shake their magic eight-ball and arbitrarily guess what the future holds for communications, most of us make the same, frustrating mistake: We focus on the “what.”

The truth is that what the agency of the future looks like doesn’t matter. What you do, regardless of your level of expertise, has completely and forever transformed into a commodity. Don’t believe me? Look around. Consulting firms are building content development powerhouses. Algorithms are writing articles. Enormous freelance communities are a click away. And brands are increasingly looking inward for solutions.

As a partner and strategy director of my own agency, I can tell you this much: What you do is a commodity....

BANK OF AMERICA: There's a 20%-50% chance we're inside the matrix and reality is just a simulation

BANK OF AMERICA: There's a 20%-50% chance we're inside the matrix and reality is just a simulation | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

The thing is: We'd never know it anyway. 

In a note to clients out Tuesday, Bank of America Merrill Lynch said there's a 20%-50% chance that we're living in the matrix — meaning that the world we experience as "real" is actually just a simulation. 

The firm cites comments from Elon Musk, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Nick Bostrom's seminal paper on the issue as the basis for its 20%-50% view. 

Here's BAML (emphasis added):

"Many scientists, philosophers, and business leaders believe that there is a 20-50% probability that humans are already living in a computer-simulated virtual world. In April 2016, researchers gathered at the American Museum of Natural History to debate this notion. The argument is that we are already approaching photorealistic 3D simulations that millions of people can simultaneously participate in. It is conceivable that with advancements in artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and computing power, members of future civilizations could have decided to run a simulation of their ancestors."

Jeff Domansky's insight:

This is one for the WTF file. Business Insider reported that Bank of America Merrill Lynch sent a note to clients saying there's a 20-50% chance we're inside the matrix and reality is just a simulation. Thanks for that. I haven't been able to find the original BAML note however because I really want to see how this relates to investment strategies. Whatever. Still one of the best sci-fi flicks around.

The Chat Bots Are Coming! The Chat Bots Are Coming!

The Chat Bots Are Coming! The Chat Bots Are Coming! | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it
Time recently ran a piece with the headline, “Chat Bots Are Back And They’re About To Take Over.” Really?

Evan Wray: You better believe it! There’s a popular report by Activate stating that mobile messaging apps have been the fastest growing online sector within the social landscape over the past five years, with 2.5 billion registered users today and an additional 1.1 billion new users expected by 2018 — totaling 3.6 billion users.

Couple that with the sophistication of today’s chat bot — or artificial intelligence technology. This is an environment in which audience engagement can flourish — and should not be ignored by marketers. The future mobile experience where commerce, services, and communications are all completed in a contextual intelligent chat thread within messaging apps — instead of through a clunky combination of mobile sites and apps — is becoming closer and closer to a present-day reality.

Thoughtful post about chatbots will make you think.

Over the past 12 months we’ve lost half of our social referral traffic. And we’ve started looking deep within ourselves to figure out how to stay at the top of our game.

Every single day I take notes and write about social media marketing, but I don’t put enough time aside to reflect on how it’s all changing, where it’s heading and what that means for me personally as a marketer and for our whole team at Buffer.

The End Of Apps As We Know Them - Inside Intercom

The End Of Apps As We Know Them - Inside Intercom | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

The experience of our primary mobile screen being a bank of app icons that lead to independent destinations is dying. And that changes everything.


How we experience content via connected devices – laptops, phones, tablets, wearables – is undergoing a dramatic change. The idea of an app as an independent destination is becoming less important, and the idea of an app as a publishing tool, with related notifications that contain content and actions, is becoming more important. This will change what we design, and change our product strategy


.NO MORE SCREENS FULL OF APP ICONS


This is such a paradigm shift it requires plenty of explaining. Whilst it may not transpire exactly as I’m about to describe, there is no doubt what we have today — screens of apps — is going to dramatically change. Bear with me as I run through the context....

Brave new wearable world: Crowdsourcing health, and the coming battle of bio-signals

Brave new wearable world: Crowdsourcing health, and the coming battle of bio-signals | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

In the words of Aldous Huxley: “There is only one corner of the universe that you are certain of improving and that is your own self.” Wearables are THE tool for self-improvement....


...During this early experimentation in the wearable space (so early the word itself hadn’t yet been coined), we experienced first-hand the challenge of creating a compelling wearable that turns analog, human-derived signals into meaningful digital data — a deeply intricate exercise, which, turns out, requires a lot more than mere conviction.


That prototype never made it to market.


We have since then continued to chip away at our ignorance. Fast-forward six years — two and a half years after founding OMsignal, with a small but multidisciplinary team of medical and bio-engineering scientists, hardware and software engineers, product design specialists as well as smart-textile engineers and fashion artisans — we now know a great deal more about what it takes to develop the science, technology, and user experience required for a fully integrated consumer wearable product..

IBM reveals its top five innovation predictions for the next five years | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

IBM's predictions all involve big data and using computing to glean intelligence from vast systems. We discuss them with IBM's research boss....


In a nutshell, IBM says:

– The classroom will learn you.

– Buying local will beat online.

– Doctors will use your DNA to keep you well.

– A digital guardian will protect you online.

– The city will help you live in it.


Meyerson said that this year’s ideas are based on the fact that everything will learn. Machines will learn about us, reason, and engage in a much more natural and personalized way. The innovations are being enabled by cloud computing, big data analytics, and adaptive learning technologies. IBM believes the technologies will be developed with the appropriate safeguards for privacy and security, but each of these predictions raises privacy and security issues...

3 Waves of Digital Transformation - Be Prepared

3 Waves of Digital Transformation - Be Prepared | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

In the age of hyper-digital transformation, nine additional, incremental digital technologies join the eight from the previous age. These nine start with a relatively low level of importance today but increase by an average of 145% among digital leaders by the year 2020. These nine additional digital technologies reach the threshold of having an “important to very important” business impact among at least one-fourth of digital leaders:


Telepresence (Skype, Google Hangouts, etc.) (49%)


Digital currency (49%)


Artificial intelligence (46%)


Robotic process automation (software) (41%)


Sharing economy platforms like Uber (39%)


Nanotechnologies (35%)


Robots (hardware) (33%


Telematics (29%r)


Wearables (28%)


When combined, these seventeen digital technologies increase their business impact among digital leaders by an average of 112% between 2016 and 2020. The predicted business impact of these digital technologies mean that the business and IT organizations you operate today will need to look very different by 2020 in order to keep up and compete successfully....

The future of the IoT job market

The future of the IoT job market | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

Nearly 250 years later, in a world defined by technological change, we see the same fears and concerns. As of September 2015, Amazon had 30,000 Kiva robots automating its warehouses, increasing efficiency and reducing the need for pick-and-pack labor. And at the same time, demand for software developers continues to rise, as Marc Andreessen’s famous 2011 statement that “software is eating the world” becomes ever more true.

Over the next decade, we’ll see this pattern play out once more in the nascent Internet of Things (IoT). With an industry defined by “bringing physical things online,” many IoT business models are predicated on improving efficiency by eliminating labor. We see companies connecting garbage cans to the internet to improve the efficiency of deploying waste collectors — which means we’ll need fewer waste collectors. Drones are dramatically reducing the time it takes to survey a plot of land — which means we’ll need fewer surveyors. Every industry that involves electronics or equipment can expect to be disrupted in this way over the next 10 years.

So the same question that was asked in the late 1700s remains: Will this new technology eliminate jobs? No....

How The Collapse Of The Cable Business Model Will Bring A New Era Of Television

How The Collapse Of The Cable Business Model Will Bring A New Era Of Television | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

Ever since the commercial Internet emerged, content has been at the center.  Bill Gates, quite famously, declared that content is king and called it the “killer app” of the Internet age.  Inspired, media executives and internet entrepreneurs alike sought to marry content and distribution to create the perfect business model.


The problem is, as I’ve noted before, that content is crap.  Nobody walks out of a great movie and says, “Wow! That was some great content.”  Nobody listens to content on their way to work in the morning.  We never call anything we like “content,” the term is a mere fantasy in the minds of business planners.


That, in essence, is why despite the predictions of digital pundits, the TV industry has continued to prosper.  Through a series of disruptions—cable, DVD and now streaming video—programing has continued to evolve.  Now, with the cable business model starting to unravel, we can expect an explosion of creative energy that will usher in a new golden age of TV....

The Future of Consumer Tech Is About Making You Forget It's There

The Future of Consumer Tech Is About Making You Forget It's There | Public Relations & Social Marketing Insight | Scoop.it

With the iPad, the notion of technology getting out of the way meant designing a computer so easy to use that the apps took center stage. But the result was in some sense counterproductive; we've become so sucked into our phones and tablets that technology is actually getting in the way of the real world.

It's not going to be like that forever. In talking to leaders from some of the most innovative companies in consumer electronics, it's clear that the next five years will represent an attempt to bring us back to reality. This may seem paradoxical, but a proliferation of wearable devices, smart-home gizmos, smart cameras, and augmented-reality systems will exist largely to save us from our screens....
