Social Physics - Reinventing Analytics to Better Predict Human Behaviors

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

But, at the same time, mutations and innovations will vary among different groups, with natural selection favoring those human groups better able to adapt to changing conditions.

The Jobs Outlook for 2022

AI - the Creation of a Human-Centric Engineering Discipline

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

It’s enabled the construction of AI algorithms that can be trained with lots and lots of sample inputs, which are subsequently applied to difficult AI problems like language translation, natural language processing, and playing championship-level Go.

I’ve been following it for a while now and it is very inspiring on many different levels. The laboratory gives Greenpeace and its partners a space to design, test, iterative, and roll out new strategies and techniques for participatory campaigns or what has been called “People Powered.” Storytelling and Knowledge Transfer :: sharing innovations, lessons learned, fail stories, and emerging best practices.

Big Data Takes Center Stage

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The first is what they call n=all, that is, collect and use lots of data rather than settling for small samples, as statisticians have done until now. “The The way people handled the problem of capturing information in the past was through sampling.

A Framework for Building AI Capabilities

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

It’s only been in the last few years that complementary innovations, especially machine learning have taken AI from the lab to early marketplace adopters. After decades of promise and hype, artificial intelligence has finally reached a tipping point of market acceptance.

A Framework for Building AI Capabilities

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

It’s only been in the last few years that complementary innovations, especially machine learning have taken AI from the lab to early marketplace adopters. In the 1960s and 1970s, IT brought automation to a number of discrete business processes, including transaction processing, financial planning, engineering design, inventory management, payroll and personnel records.

Precision Farming Increases Crop Yields - “Combining sensors and imaging of every plant with real-time data analytics improves farm outputs and reduces waste”. Sustainable Design of Communities Dramatically Reduces Waste - “Moving beyond the green-home level, ambitious projects are attempting to join blocks of buildings into a single sustainable unit”. Researchers will continue to drive innovations in both the hardware and software.

The 2010 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Given the realities of globalization, disruptive innovation, and profound changes across technology, markets and society, it should not be surprising that CEOs and their companies must now navigate a highly volatile and unpredictable business environment. Even more striking, during the economic crisis, Standouts’ revenue growth was six times higher than the rest of the sample. Standouts practice and encourage experimentation and innovation throughout their organizations.

Reflections on Smarter Healthcare Systems: Practical, Concrete, Expert Advice

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Our panel of experts included Dr. Cortese; Chris Coburn - Executive Director of Innovations at the Cleveland Clinic ; Dr. Ronald Paulus - Chief Technology and Innovation Officer at the Geisinger Health System ; and Dr. Armando Ahued Ortega - Health Secretary of Mexico City. In anything as complex as healthcare, you need to design and architect a system that is implementable, flexible and adaptable to the myriads of requirements you will have to support now and in the future.

The future of higher education and other imponderables

George Siemens

This post is a fairly rapid run through the many points of innovation that confront higher education. 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.

Research and Evidence

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

His part of the world is the dual environments of Athabasca University and the University of Texas at Arlington, and he is attempting to put together major research efforts around MOOCs and learning analytics. It's the biggest innovation to happen in education for 200 years."

They are however designed to be standalone talks as well so hopefully you will not be as unfulfilled after the talk as you might be afraid of being. What I want to examine in this talk, is not the problem MOOCs solve at the moment but the problem MOOCs were designed to solve.

This is just a small sample of the evidence he could have assayed to make the case that automation is being used as a mechanism to privatize the educational system. But here's where the challenge arises for the education and university system: it was designed to support income inequality and designed to favour the wealthy. Yet this is the sort of education being designed today though systems such as adaptive learning systems and common core.

Sustainability and MOOCs in Historical Perspective

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Learning design was an attempt to emulate what was called programmed learning in the course packages, a way of leading the student through the materials one step at a time. The interaction part of MuniMall worked really well and, in fact, the community lasted for 10 years from the original design. It's interesting because these content sharing sites adapted an innovation that was created by the instant messaging services. Pretty innovative. How did we design this?
