Social Physics - Reinventing Analytics to Better Predict Human Behaviors

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

T hey eventually discovered that all event-data representing human activity contain a special set of social activity patterns regardless of what the data is about.

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

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”. As new data is ingested, the system rewires itself based on whatever new patterns it now finds.

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.

[liveblog] Noam Chomsky and Bart Gellman at Engaging Data

David Weinberger

Took a sample. Used standard analytics techniques to find that white people are 4x more likely to get pardons, that campaign contributors are also more likely. The more we know, the more we can design policies to keep power in place. And now hardware in computers is being designed to detect your every keystroke, leading some Americans to be wary of Chinese-made computers, but the US manufacturers are probably doing it better.

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. We''re told there will be analytics and data-driven management. Models of how to do learning, learning design patterns: Grainne Conole has done a lot on this.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was trying to get them to spot fallacies by recognizing them, by seeing signs that would remind them of common patterns of argument. The difference is that a cMOOC is designed as a network, as I described above, while an xMOOC is based on a central course site and content that will be followed by all students. In a MOOC, the network is created specifically for a given course, but gRSShopper is designed to support open content distribution and syndication generally.

The 2010 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Technology is a second major factor contributing to growing complexity: “… creating a world that is massively interconnected, with broad-based convergence of systems of all kinds, both man-made systems like supply chains or cities; and natural systems like weather patterns or natural disasters. Even more striking, during the economic crisis, Standouts’ revenue growth was six times higher than the rest of the sample. IBM recently released the 2010 Global CEO Study.

Czech Course Followup Questions

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Filtering systems, content recommendation systems, analytics and other tools will make the task of recognition easier. Given a teaching resource - perhaps some sample code with instructions - it will take me maybe half an hour to learn the procedure. We could talk about how better or worse to design these materials, but that now leaves the domain of cooperative versus collaborative learning.

Engagement and Motivation in MOOCs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The paper has identified a number of patterns that seem to indicate that the relationship between LMS activity and final student grade may be moderated by a number of factors including type of student and the level of staff interaction. It has established that instructional design input may also be important.

Musings on “community management” Part 1 | Full Circle Associates

seeing the patterns of those posts then composing a response. A good community manager must be able to skip around, see patterns, scan the whole and then discern if and where to intervene in the system. Community requires the emotional intelligence from the heart side and the analytical/strategic and content skills from the head side. Second, I think that multi-membership, head-and-heart, and network sensibilities are more important than pattern recognition scores.

Education as Platform: The MOOC Experience and what we can do to make it better

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What this talk is about - it's called "Education as Platform" - is the idea of exploring some of the experiences we've had with massive open online learning, and exploring some of the criticisms that we've experienced, some of the criticisms that we've seen, and trying to understand what elements of the design are working and what elements of the design are not working, and to use this understanding to try to advance our perspective on the way online learning is proceeding and should proceed.
