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. Newspapers and magazines are full of articles about the latest advances in machine learning and related AI technologies. Overall, the business world is beginning to adopt AI. AI is seemingly everywhere.

How Not to Adopt an LCMS

Xyleme

Modern learning organizations understand that, in order to provide learners with the resources they expect (such as content personalization, mobile learning, microlearning, and just-in-time support) new technology tools are no longer a “nice to have” — they’re a necessity. Companies that adopt a new LCMS are challenging the status quo, reimagining the way content is typically authored, created and delivered. The post How Not to Adopt an LCMS appeared first on Xyleme.

How to Support the Widespread Adoption of AI

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Only 8% of firms are engaged in practices that support widespread adoption. To support the widespread adoption of AI, companies must make three fundamental shifts. In their 2009 book Wired for Innovation: How Information Technology is Rewiring the Economy , Erik Brynjolfsson and Adam Saunders introduced the concept of organizational capital as the necessary critical ingredient that enabled a company to take full advantage of major IT advances.

How Can Blockchain Become a Truly Transformative Technology?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

AI Technologies Are Fundamentally Changing How Work Gets Done

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

After decades of promise and hype, artificial intelligence is finally becoming one of the most important technologies of our era. AI technologies, like machine learning, are clearly having a major impact on the very nature of work.

AI Is Mostly About Business Value, Not Technology

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For example, in a 2018 Harvard Business Review article he co-authored, Davenport advised companies to build their AI capabilities through the lens of business opportunities, rather than technology. Transformative technologies are prone to hype cycles , - remember the dot-com bubble.

Generations, Social and Enterprise: adopt vs adapt

Martijn Linssen

and Social are about humans, people, change management, radical organisation change, and, in the end, about tools And, on the field of Integration, the theme of adopt versus adapt has always played the most significant role in my working life. Do we adopt the industry standards? If their environment doesnt adapt, they adopt their environment: slash and burn them into a subsidiary, a third, fourth or fifth leg. Employees arent used to adopting. Business or Pleasure? -

The connected enterprise adoption curve

Harold Jarche

You have the enterprise social technology and you may have even developed training programs, in conjunction with supporting collaboration aligned with the workflow. These are the early adopters.

Leveraging Technology

Clark Quinn

Technology is supposed to support our goals, and, when well-written, it does. For instance, while I love Keynote, I haven’t been able to adopt Pages because it hasn’t had industrial-strength outlining. Um, people, this is why we have technology: to support us in working smarter, not to go to a last-century (or worse) manual process. design meta-learning strategy technology

Open Business – From Adoption into Adaptation

Luis Suarez

As I have mentioned in a recent blog post, you would remember how I have now moved into a new job role within IBM, as Lead Social Business Enabler for IBM Connections (both internal and external), where I am much more heavily involved with IBM’s knowledge workers’ own adoption efforts of social business and social technologies. At the same time, it has allowed me to witness how over the course of time those waves of adopters are getting narrower and narrower.

Webinar Software - Adoption Advice

Clark Quinn

Good question about adoption of webinar software / services - this time from someone who went to my workshop in Cincinnati - Revolution in Workplace Learning - who by the way - called it "awesome." Our webinars have been successful by our standards and for the most part, we've been early adopters of the technology. Anyone have concern about adopting Adobe Connect vs. the myriad of other solutions out there? I personally often adopt whatever is most easily available.

Apple finally adopts the Network Mindset

Adaptive Path

As someone who has followed the web and technology landscape for the last 15 years, I have noticed that the companies which have proven dominant are those that demonstrate what I would call a network mindset. By which I mean, they grok the emergent properties of network effects, and use that to establish a dominant position that is remarkably hard to replicate.

Technology, Resources and Innovation

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Take that base scaffolding and then wrap a learning community around it, based on great teaching, great technology, and the power it provides. I see that technology today, in pockets. We could develop courses by ourselves pre-technology. technology standards. We have all the technology, but we just aren’t demanding it yet. So it’s not a question of getting the campus to adopt technology, but so that it’s just easy.

A Growing Backlash Against the Relentless Advances in Technology?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Given the relentless impact of technology-based innovation on just about all aspects of society, I like reading the views of different people on the subject, especially those outside my own worlds of technology and business. At IBM’s Watson Research Center , where I spent the first 15 years of my career, I was mostly involved in technology transfer initiatives aimed at moving innovations from IBM’s research labs to its product divisions.

People, Organization, Technology?

Martijn Linssen

Headed for my personal trash bin: ‘People, Process, Technology.’ For the rest, technology should enable serendipity rather than predictive process. It may be People, Organization, Technology; although we should not be in a rush to replace a failed triplet with another. The reason that consumer social media technologies experience a high adoption rate – without the ‘benefit’ of corporate training – is because they align with human aspiration.

Non-Technologists Agree: It’s the Technology

Andy McAfee

Both were written by first-rate researchers, none of whom specialize in studying the impact of technology. And both came to the same conclusion: that digital technologies were largely responsible for the phenomena they examined. We show that the decrease in the relative price of investment goods, often attributed to advances in information technology and the computer age, induced firms to shift away from labor and toward capital.

5 uncertainties that will shape the future of wearable technology

Ross Dawson

The rise of wearables is one of the biggest emerging trends in consumer technology. Over the last decade our primary interfaces with connected technology have shifted from fixed computers to devices that we can carry in our pockets or bags. 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.

Solow Paradox 2.0: The Lagging Impact of Technology Advances on Productivity Growth

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Which is why few topics have generated as much concern among economists and policy makers as the sharp decline in productivity growth in the US and other advanced economies over the past decade, - despite accelerating technology advances. Our continuing technology advances should have been able to overcome the two percentage decline in productivity growth of the first two waves. But their benefits have not materialized in the short term due to several adoption barriers.

Should Employees Be Incented to Use Social Technologies?

Dan Pontefract

Social collaboration technologies such as internal instances of blogging, micro-blogging, video sharing, discussion forums, idea sharing, wikis, and so on are all key aspects of being collaborative. Which brings me to the question, “ Should employees be incented to use social technologies ?”. Competition – as opposed to using social technologies to enact collaborative behaviour, it may turn ugly and become a competition amongst employees.

From learning to working technologies

Harold Jarche

Tweet Here is a graphic of Moore’s technology adoption curve. Inspired by Jane Hart , this is my view of the current state of the learning technologies industry: The Late Majority and Laggards are focused on meeting their compliance needs. The Innovators & Early Adopters have shifted to a work focus. As an organization, are you waiting for Workscapes to cross the chasm or are you content to use technologies that have jumped the shark ?

Poverty and Technology

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Responding to an enquiry regarding technologies that will address the issues of global justice and poverty: I want to first say that while these technologies can play a role, the primary resolution to the issues of global justice and poverty are social and political, not technological. Technology will solve none of these problems, and yet, these problems are the primary causes of poverty and injustice worldwide. Similarly with technology.
