Thinking about design ‘thinking’

Dave Snowden

I’ve been thinking about the whole approach we are adopting to design thinking as the Whistler retreat approaches. By distributed I mean using multiple, cognitively, behaviourally and culturally diverse groups working independently of each other (wisdom of crowds) to reduce bias and pattern entrainment as well as to increase the possibility of outlier identification and novelty. . The post Thinking about design ‘thinking’ appeared first on Cognitive Edge.

from enlightenment to entanglement

Harold Jarche

Our existing education and training systems are not designed for this task. All forager-hunter societies were oral cultures, steeped in mythological consciousness. But none of our institutions, including our markets, are designed for what is to come.

The impacts of Data Science, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence on Learning and Development

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These areas help is in upskilling, instructional design, instructon, coaching, more. There are three main types of machine learning: supervised learning, where you provide lables or tags with the data, and the computer learns to identify unlabled data unsupervised learning, where we don't have lables in the data we provide, where the machine tries to find patterns, clusters or similarities in the data, which it then uses to classify everything else reinforcement learning - eg.

Culture 6 of 7: Adjustments

Dave Snowden

In any art work the final adjustments mean that we are nearing completion, in cultural change I want to argue, it is the sign that the process is only just starting. An initiative is designed to start a journey rather than complete a goal. In an ideal world managing culture would be a constantly evolving process; multiple small micro-changes with a feedback loop in near real time that allows the process to be navigated. The essence of cultural change is minimalism ….

AI for Nonprofits and Social Good: Link Roundup

Beth Kanter

AI can do this faster than humans to identify patterns. The platform is described as a “Slack-first” HR platform designed to help managers proactively combat abuse by fostering collaboration, teamwork, and inclusion.

Allison Fine and I have been actively researching and writing about AI for Social Good and Nonprofits.

learning in complexity and chaos

Harold Jarche

Most of our current work structures are designed to address complicated situations, such as constructing a building, launching a campaign, or designing a piece of equipment. Complexity and chaos require us to structure for curiosity and resolve , as Apple has done with their design approach. Humans have the ability to deal with some very complex things, yet too often our cultural and organizational barriers block us from using these innate abilities.

The Social Network Is the Computer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

This ecosystem has been designed to stimulate and manipulate the human psyche, “to draw us in and persuade us to change how we shop, vote, and exercise, and even who we love.”

Will AI Ever Be Smarter Than a Baby?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Almost no one remembers that in the very same paper Turing suggested that the key to achieving intelligence would be to design a machine that was like a child, not an adult,” wrote Gopnik in a 2015 article, What Babies Tell Us About AI.

Educational Research in Learning Technology

But community itself is a value, especially when it becomes possible to develop learning communities that span regions and cultures. I think the key point here is to note that not everything is designed to increase test scores. 2019) which caught my eye.

And, as he notes, ““There is one and only one social responsibility of business – to use it[s]resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition.” Neelakantan, 2019).
