Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Retailers and Customers

John Hagel

Almost a decade ago, I detected an intriguing pattern regarding the unbundling and rebundling of firms (purchase unfortunately required). Of course, the pace and trajectory of unbundling (and related rebundling) differs across industries and geographies – the patterns are complex and fractal. When I first wrote about the broader unbundling pattern in the late 1990s – there was one big anomaly that many people kept pointing out to me – the Gap.

Machine Learning and Knowledge Discovery

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The article told the story about Google’s adoption of an AI first strategy , and in particular, its use of deep machine learning to dramatically improve Google Translate , one of its more popular online services. As new data is ingested, the system rewires itself based on whatever new patterns it now finds. To automate the process, the host can then use machine learning to discover common patterns or features among all the guests.

In praise of Texture

Dave Snowden

It is a similar story-telling convention adopted in the Game of Thrones, where the white walkers are an enemy that do not tire, that are death personified (the COVID-19 virus has been identified to be a bit of a zombie virus ; there is nothing to kill as the virus is already dead). Policy and governance has often been designed on a belief in generalisability, symmetry and an evenness of experience; welfare is provided for those who fall outside the norm. Patterns and texture .

This topic is designed to give you some tools and ideas for including social media appropriately in your overall organizational strategic plan and to measure its effectiveness. Whenever considering adopting a solution consider asking the following three questions. (1) 3) What new problems are likely to arise by adopting it? Do a search to see who has linked to that post?

They have their groundings in design thinking, group dynamics, and complexity theory. Additional concepts from complexity theory that are inherent in good lab process involve working with finely grained information, looking for patterns, using experiments, recognizing and even stimulating self organizing properties in the system and adopting an iterative approach.

The future of higher education and other imponderables

George Siemens

The patterns of change in higher education are surprisingly similar and global. Not all countries are adopting the aggressive UK model, but tuition patterns internationally (.pdf) The adoption of the internet and mobile technologies (read the whole Meeker Report if you want a good sampling of the scope of technological change) continues at a frenzied pace. We will be running an open online course from Oct 8-Nov 16 , 2012, addressing some of the concepts in this post.

Big Data Takes Center Stage

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In 2000, only one-quarter of the world’s stored information was digital and therefore subject to search and analysis. Sampling requires anticipating how the data will be used so you can design the proper sample. Or, at least it’s good enough in the early stages of an empirical science, when we are looking for patterns that will help us predict future events and behaviors without necessarily having a good model or theory of why they happen.

David Weinberger

Rural students need to learn how to use the Web to search the university library. Look at user needs to design services. We generate lots of data, which allows us to be strategic, looking for patterns of use. The adoption rates are accelerating. We should create Facebook fan pages for our libraries, and we can put our search engines there. Libraries are adopting new, higher-value services where the disruptors are not competing.

But it is not just social scientists who fall prey to this temptation to adopt a Gaussian view of the world. In many respects, the history of Western business in the twentieth century represents an effort to build scalable operations through standardization designed to serve “average consumers”. These managers inherit from the industrial economy a belief that, even where the world is not yet Gaussian, it can be made so through design. Here's to patterns that connect!

design patterns for XML schemas. Apparently theres a trade-off between designers and developers in the way a schema is organised, and there isnt a winner yet. Choosing the appropriate pattern is a critical step in the design phase of schemas. Once you have made a choice, switching the pattern to another one without GUI tools is tedious and error-prone Doesnt sound very comforting,does it? Business or Pleasure? -

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. When you look at that, basically it''s like they have this model or design in their head of how we could rebuild the university system, wipe it all out, start over, and we''ll have a new model. Models of how to do learning, learning design patterns: Grainne Conole has done a lot on this. In these models, these designs are being implemented as educational technology.

Why Do Firms Exist?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Transaction costs are incurred in obtaining goods and services outside the firm, such as searching for the right people, negotiating a contract, coordinating the work, managing intellectual property and so on. Resources include people, equipment, technology, product designs, brands, information and cash, as well as the relationships the firm has with suppliers, distributors and customers.

As a result, much of this investment was wasted, consistent with the broader pattern of the dot com bubble. Virtual communities can be particularly powerful in delivering ROA – enhancing serendipity rather than just search. It exhibits specific network patterns. It is in these patterns, the specific network mathematics, which the properties you describe of communities exists. Rather, visualization allows these network patterns to be understood and optimized with ease.

leads to questions about designing learning for the future - reference to the old ''cranking ifo into students'' heads diagram - claims about the future: - work at own time, place, etc - computers will revolutionize learning - along came MOOCs - investment in MOOCs: $100M - will take time but will have a major impact - why things will change.

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Innovating on the Edge of Big Waves

John Hagel

Pursuing these new practices and design ideas, Hamilton and the others working with him recognized that challenging larger and larger waves required a team effort. In the case of big wave surfers, there has been an ever-expanding search for the breaks that would produce bigger and rougher waves to test new board designs and surfing practices. Evolving practices in turn generate insight to the product designers for future waves of design innovation.

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Another key idea was the design of the gaming space itself.Early computer games (and many early arcade games) were designed likeprogrammed learning: they were like a flow chart, guiding you through a seriesof choices to a predetermined conclusion. You can begin to see a pattern developing here. To this day, the learningmanagement system is designed essentially to present content and supportdiscussion and activities around that content.

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

Andy McAfee

It’s logical and natural to think that all the good new product ideas come out of the design department and R&D labs, that the folk in the IT department are the best ones to help you with your computer problem, and that the engineers are the only ones who can figure out why the doors start rattling after 5,000 miles on the road. Search is the dominant navigation paradigm. People navigate online content by typing words into search boxes rather than navigating through menus.

MOOC - The Resurgence of Community in Online Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Hence, a MOOC is to my mind, defined along the following four dimensions: [slide 3 – massive] Massive - here I mean not necessarily the success of the MOOC in attracting many people, but in the design elements that make educating many people possible. In practice, what this means is a system designed so that bottlenecks are not created in any of the four attributes: modeling, demonstration, practice, and reflection. but also to be involved in the design of these.

Learning in the Digital Age: The Reality and the Myth

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

A lot of the time these patterns, these projections, are primal and basic like bears, like tragedy, like fangs and hooks. In my mind, searching for competencies is taking one really difficult problem and breaking it down into 10 really difficult problems. The principle of the categorical imperative tells us when somebody prescribes something as a solution, to imagine everybody in the world adopting that solution and then to ask whether it makes sense.

When people say technology is value neutral, I say people have values and people build software, therefore the software carries the imprint of the designers’ values. For global organizations, IT tends to make the software choice without a lot of insight about field conditions and social interaction/working patterns AND are often lured to use any software offered to them free as an NGO. That is, it seems, the basic design paradigm.

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: SOA Versus Web 2.0?

John Hagel

On this platform, authoring creates content; links and tags knit it together; and search, extensions, tags and signals make emergent structures and patterns in the content visible, and help people stay on top of it all. Line executives within the enterprise are experiencing mounting frustration over the escalating hype around SOAs, the growing spending over SOA design initiatives and the relatively limited business impact achieved by SOA deployments.

How I use social media

Nancy White

I figured it would be good to exercise my memory a bit and unearth some of the key stories that led me to to my social media use today, and perhaps surface some of my patterns. These roots are significant because our patterns of use, our ways of embracing or rejecting technology are grounded in this history. Over the years, this initial online learning experience formed the roots of my practice as a designer and facilitator of online learning events. So what are the patterns?

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Onshore Manufacturing

John Hagel

The individual stories are interesting but, as always, it is the patterns of behavior that are most informative. The engineers and designers at Harley-Davidson and Haas are constantly altering the companies’ products in ways that are not easily imitated by lower-priced foreign competitors. In this way, they enlist the active participation of workers in the search for process improvements to generate greater operating efficiency.

What I mean is: knowledge itself, to know something, is to be organized in a certain way, to have a certain pattern of connectivity in the mind, a certain neural connection in the mind. To learn on that theory is therefore to acquire that pattern of organization. To learn is therefore not to have things pushed in your head but to grow and to develop in a certain way and specifically to grow and develop in such a way that you are able to recognize patterns in the environment.
