The Current State of AI Adoption

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In the past few years, the necessary ingredients have finally come together to propel AI beyond early adopters to a broader marketplace: powerful, inexpensive computer technologies; advanced algorithms; and huge amounts of data on almost any subject. AI is seemingly everywhere.

Five Ways People Adopt And Love Change

Luckily, a communications expert named Everett Rogers looked deep and long at how human beings actually look at and choose to adopt something new and innovative. I love this because Rogers doesn’t look at what sells, but at what actually gets adopted and really, truly used.

Tony Karrer

Tools For New Thoughts: A Special Webinar For "Early Adopters" Of My Book

Steven Berlin Johnson

So laced through the seven chapters on the different patterns of innovation, in between all the stories of world-changing creativity, there are a number of passages that talk about useful tools or strategies for bringing some of these insights into your own life. Where Good Ideas Come From is an idea book about the history of ideas, but I have always thought of it as a book that would have real practical value as well.

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Retailers and Customers

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.

The Impact of AI on the World Economy

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

It looked at their adoption of five broad categories of AI technologies: computer vision, natural language, virtual assistants, robotic process automation, and advanced machine learning. AI adoption could widen gaps between countries, companies, and workers.

Andy McAfee

Unfortunately for job seekers, I expect that pattern to resume in the very near future. The historical pattern is very clear and very regular here, and I see no reason it won’t repeat itself.

Buyer/organisation alignment

Dave Snowden

It contrasts early and late adoption between buyer and organisation. So you have four options: Early adopter buyer in an early adopter organisation. Early adopter buyer in a late adopter company. Late adopter buyer in early adopter organisation.

5 uncertainties that will shape the future of wearable technology

Ross Dawson

While it is always hard to predict consumer response to new technologies, it is safe to say that any early adopters will take to the next generation of devices with alacrity. Now that wearables are in the market there are major uncertainties around the acceptance of interfaces that are a step beyond what we are used, for example using smaller screens for smartwatches, wearing glasses that are (initially) difficult to make stylish, or adopting contact lenses as an information interface.

Artificial Intelligence is Ready for Business; Are Businesses Ready for AI?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

asks McKinsey in a recently published report - Artificial Intelligence: the Next Digital Frontier. “AI adoption outside of the tech sector is at an early, often experimental stage,” is the report’s succinct answer. “Few firms have deployed it at scale.”. AI is now seemingly everywhere.

A Framework for Building AI Capabilities

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

But, despite its market acceptance, a recent McKinsey report found that AI adoption is still at an early, experimental stage, especially outside the tech sector. The report adds that the gap between the early AI adopters and everyone else is growing.

Defend your mess

Euen Semple

Most of the early adopters, myself included, were happy with the really simple structure and organic growth that had helped it find its place in the organisation. They thought that people would find it difficult to navigate if it didn’t follow the familiar patterns. The forum worked because it didn’t fit the patterns. The patterns didn't work. The silos bore little relationship to the real patterns that emerged from our day to day exchanges with each other.

iPad swiftly becomes the dominant medium for reading and entertainment

Ross Dawson

Laptop/ computer is in the lead at 33% (reflecting the very tech-oriented community that have been the early adopters of iPad), with iPad at 24% beating out mobile phones at 22% and TV languishing in fourth place at 19%. The question is of course where usage patterns go to from here.

The Disruption Debate - What's Missing?

John Hagel

This demise is typically brought about by one or more players adopting a different approach to a market or arena that represents a significant challenge to the established position of existing participants. One of the issues with a case study approach is that it obscures the more fundamental and systemic trends and patterns that are playing out around us. But there’s one key difference that helps to explain a sustained and increasing pattern of disruption today.

Mastery and competence

Dave Snowden

In one of the breakouts today a few of us spent three sessions working on a wider education initiative around Agile adoption. My point was not to challenge the success, or the value of what had been achieved, but I am more cautious about its adoption.

The Real Value of Labor

John Hagel

Can you see the pattern? If we adopt this mindset, labor is now about learning, everywhere and all the time. It’s Labor Day in the US, so what better day to reflect on how misunderstood workers are? Truth be told, workers are often viewed as a cost by many institutions. In fact, that’s where they appear on financial statements – they’re a major expense item on the income statement. That view of workers naturally sets up an “us vs. them” and “win/lose” mindset.

Getting on the AI Learning Curve: A Pragmatic, Incremental Approach

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Machine learning methods are particularly valuable in extracting patterns from complex, unstructured data, including audio, speech, images and video. After decades of promise and hype, AI is now seemingly everywhere.

Integration and an alarmist implication

Dave Snowden

That lack of diversity allows for new ideas to emerge in the fringe of the system (the early adopters). Before and immediately after this we pay attention to the tails of distributions and we hit negative patterns early and fast – there is no predictability.

Liminal Cynefin, stepping over the threshold

Dave Snowden

Part of the power of Cynefin is that it is multi-layered in adoption. This is difficult to do in the concrete as old patterns assert themselves to quickly, hence the use of abstraction to prevent that.

The MIT Intelligence Quest

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

AI was reborn in the 1990s when it adopted a more applied, engineering-oriented paradigm. How does human intelligence work, in biological as well as in engineering terms? And how can we use such an understanding of human intelligence to build wiser and more useful machines?

United We Stand, Divided We Fall

John Hagel

Second, the long arc of human history shows an amazing pattern of exponential performance improvement on a wide range of dimensions – reduction of violence, health and prosperity. Rather than adopting hierarchical command and control structures, successful movements are all organized around small, local action groups , typically 10 – 15 people, who work together to achieve impact in very different contexts.

How the Left and Right use blogs

David Weinberger

Sites on the left adopt more participatory technical platforms; are comprised of significantly fewer sole-authored sites; include user blogs; maintain more fluid boundaries between secondary and primary content; include longer narrative and discussion posts; and (among the top half of the blogs in the papers’ sample) more often use blogs as platforms for mobilization as well as discursive production.
