Big Data Takes Center Stage

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.

Ritual and the Service Experience

Adaptive Path

Most organizations lean heavily on analytical methods to define rigid processes and procedures that are designed to reduce waste and increase predictability in service delivery. Yet, the service of wine is a highly ritualized experience involving presentation, sampling, and approval.

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. We believe that companies that are adopting AI in moderation now - and have aggressive implementation plans for the future - will find themselves as well positioned to reap benefits as those that embraced analytics early on.”.

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.

Analytics of multifactor classification (subject, tone, bias, scholarliness, etc.)

The Robot Teachers

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.

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. The xMOOC has a core content that everyone follows, while the cMOOC has a wide ranging network of content which people browse through and sample according to their own interests. Whether the learning analytics(LA) can be think as problem-solving techniques?

Even more striking, during the economic crisis, Standouts’ revenue growth was six times higher than the rest of the sample. Given the Internet, mobile devices, vast amounts of information and sophisticated analytical tools, companies now have the ability to provide extraordinary service to their customers at relatively affordable costs, - if they so desire. IBM recently released the 2010 Global CEO Study. This is IBM’s fourth biennial CEO study since 2004. It is also the largest.

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

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

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 central health plan and the primary care workers in the practice work closely as a team, using predictive analytics and other advanced technologies to anticipate and try to prevent problems.

Filtering systems, content recommendation systems, analytics and other tools will make the task of recognition easier.

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.

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. People learn for themselves and they design their own learning. How did we design this? You need to design humans in the same way except you don't get to design humans.
