The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Verizon, 2008) And while satellite internet did not revolutionize internet access, the spread of Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies created an essentially mobile internet, with Wi-Max, a long-range broadband wireless internet standard, poised to greatly extend that in the future.

Pareto Power and Leveraged Growth

John Hagel

  Companies are rapidly overcoming “not invented here” cultures to leverage creativity wherever it resides. The bottom line here is that Pareto analysis is not just useful for deeply and strategically cutting cost.  The two applications of Pareto analysis go hand in hand.

The Economic and Cultural Polarization of America

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For most of our nation’s history, whatever the inequality in wealth between the richest and poorest citizens, we maintained a cultural equality known nowhere else in the world - for whites, anyway.” There was a common civic culture, - the American way of life , - “that swept an extremely large proportion of Americans of all classes into its embrace. You might say the country has bifurcated into different social tribes, with a tenuous common culture linking them.”

Learning Organization Dimensions

Clark Quinn

That’s valuable feedback, because I really mean it to be the learning organization culture and the technology infrastructure, the latter of which isn’t included traditionally in the learning organization work. Concrete processes and practices breaks up into experimentation, information collection and analysis, and education and training.

The 2008 HENAAC (Hispanic Engineer) Conference

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The top honorees this year were Ellen Ochoa - deputy director for NASA's Johnson Space Center and former astronaut - who was named the 2008 Hispanic Engineer of the Year, and Dan Arvizu - Director of DOE's National Energy Renewable Lab - who was inducted into the HENAAC Hall of Fame. A major reason, according to the study, is that American culture does not highly value talent in math, and so discourages girls - and boys, for that matter - from excelling in the field."

Big Data, Complex Systems and Quantum Mechanics

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Economics is another discipline that has had to make the transition from a world of relatively simple mathematical models to one governed by the sophisticated analysis of real world information. It wasn’t until October of 2008 when in testimony before Congress, Greenspan finally acknowledged that perhaps he may have been partially wrong and was now in “a state of shocked disbelief.” . Big Data is one of the hottest topics out there.

Cloud, Services and the Transformation of Production

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

There is a clear consensus that there is no real consensus on what cloud computing is,” said the organizer of a 2008 cloud conference in his closing remarks. Cloud computing has significantly advanced since 2008.

Systems Thinking, Safety and Risk Management

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

At least one of the roundtable participants was convinced that another major event, similar to the global financial crisis of 2008 would inevitably take place in the next few years. . The world of engineering has experienced a technological revolution, while the basic engineering techniques applied in safety and reliability engineering, such as fault tree analysis (FTA) and failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), have changed very little.

Humans, Machines and Collective Intelligence

Living in a Smarter Planet

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Turning these mountains of information into real insights to guide our actions requires sophisticated analysis using powerful supercomputers. Are there any basic patterns, principles and flows that apply to both man-made and natural systems, which will enable us to better leverage the new insights obtained from all that information and sophisticated analysis?

Reflections on Political Labels

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

After a detailed analysis of each of these issues, they conclude: “Public policy in all these areas - and a host of others - has been seriously deficient in recent years. For major parts of the campaign, we seemed to have returned to the culture wars , that is, conflicts on social issues between those espousing traditional or conservative values, and those espousing more liberal or progressive values.

The Science of Information-based Predictions

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Silver launched the FiveThirtyEight in March of 2008. He gained national attention when he correctly predicted the results of the 2008 Democratic Party presidential primaries. For months, just like a good portion of the country, I followed closely our 2012 presidential campaign.

The Systems Challenge in Education

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

I loved complex systems, both their design and analysis in the lab, and the challenges of bringing them to market. We want to make sure that the systems courses emphasize design - perhaps the more holistic part of systems - as well as analysis. Tags: Complex Systems Society and Culture Technology and Strategy Growing up, I really enjoyed math, so when I started college in 1962 at the University of Chicago I was a math major.

A Very Delicate Balance

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

They have employees, assets, an established organization and a corporate culture. Operational excellence requires detailed analysis of technologies, quality, processes, competitors, customer satisfaction and market segments, and as such, is well suited for a hierarchic, disciplined style of management. It cannot be based on rigorous information analysis, because in its early stages, there is little information to analyze.

Knowledge Capital

Reflections on Cloud Computing

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Quite a few, I believe: real-time information access and analysis, such as RFID-based supply chains, transportation management and security systems; myriads of new consumer applications - in entertainment, healthcare, payments and financial services; social networks and virtual worlds involving large numbers of people interacting with each other; support of billions and billions of new mobile devices and sensors; and so on.

Job Creation and America's Future

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The United States faces an immediate challenge:,” the executive summary starts out saying, “finding employment for 7 million people still out of work from the 2008–09 recession and reviving robust job creation in the decade to come. To see how this might be possible, the McKinsey study developed three different scenarios based on the data gathered through their surveys, interviews and economic analysis.
