Social Physics - Reinventing Analytics to Better Predict Human Behaviors

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

AI is rapidly becoming one of the most important technologies of our era. They’ve enabled the construction of AI algorithms that can be trained with lots and lots of sample inputs, which are subsequently applied to complex problems like language translation, natural language processing, and playing championship-level Go. A detailed explanation of Endor’s platform, including the social physics technologies on which it’s based, can be found in this comprehensive white paper.

Educational Research in Learning Technology

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Kerr in this recent post , about how research in educational technology could be improved, but I have disagreements around the edges, enough that I think more discussion is warranted. Also, while Kerr is more focused on artificial intelligence in education (AIEd) research, I will address my remarks to learning technology more generally. Here are just a few: - access - it is demonstrably true that educational technology has increased access. Sample Size 4.

The Top Ten Emerging Technologies of 2017

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Earlier this year, Scientific American , in collaboration with the World Economic Forum , published a special report on The Top Ten Emerging Technologies of 2017. These technologies, - selected by a global panel of experts , - “are expected to become increasingly commonplace in the next few years,” and are “attracting increased funding or showing other signs of being ready to move to the next level.”. The full report includes a one-page description of each of these technologies.

Designing future organizations based on ethical foundations for AI

Trends in the Living Networks

We must start by thinking through the ethical issues and potential implications of AI, and from that designing the future organizations that will in turn shape all of society and the role of humans in creating value. Goodness, how does this technology work? We built this technology.

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract The growth and development of learning analytics has placed a range of new capacities into the hands of educational institutions. The ethics of learning analytics will therefore need to be developed on criteria specific to education. It may be argued that the relation between ethics and law is such that in a treatment of the ethics of learning analytics we ought also to be concerned with the law in relation to learning analytics.

Big Data Takes Center Stage

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A few recent articles have expressed concerns that big data may be at the peak of inflated expectations in the so-called hype cycle for emerging technologies, and will soon start falling into the trough of disillusionment. This is not uncommon in the early stages of a disruptive technology. 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

AI will likely become the most important technologies of our era as it’s improved upon over time, but we’re still in the early stages of deployment. And, history shows that even after technologies start crossing over into mainstream markets, it takes considerable time, - often decades, - for the new technologies and business models to be widely embraced by companies and industries across the economy.

The Third, - starting in the 1960s, - saw the advent of digital technologies, computers, the IT industry, and the automation of process in just about all industries. And these possibilities will be multiplied by emerging technology breakthroughs in fields such as artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, 3-D printing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, materials science, energy storage, and quantum computing.”.

AI is rapidly becoming one of the most important technologies of our era. Over the past few years, the necessary ingredients have finally come together to propel AI beyond the research labs into the marketplace : powerful, inexpensive computer technologies; huge amounts of data; and advanced algorithms. Every day we can read about the latest AI advances from startups and large companies, including applications that not long ago were viewed as the exclusive domain of humans.

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. IBM recently released the 2010 Global CEO Study. This is IBM’s fourth biennial CEO study since 2004.

Andy McAfee

Here’s a bit more on the research design and results: We combined data from three sources. Companies that were one standard deviation higher in being data-driven had 4% higher productivity and 6% higher profits than the average in our sample, all else being equal. Haven’t modern tools for analytics and business intelligence transformed how most companies make decisions and sense their environments? Therefore not all firms will be able to exploit technology well.

The future of higher education and other imponderables

George Siemens

Since my experience at Red River College, I’ve spent quite a bit of time traveling and speaking about changes in knowledge, learning, teaching, technology, and by extension, the system of education. Leadership in traditional universities has been grossly negligent in preparing the academy for the economic and technological reality it now faces. ” Technology, as stated earlier, is a significant driver of change in education.

I''m one of the people that had a significant hand in designing the original concept of the Massive Open Online Course. Because the problem isn''t the way we design our courses.

On the other hand, if our doctors were as hesitant to employ technology as our teachers sometimes are, our lives would be measurably shorter and inestimably less comfortable and less secure. 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. 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.

It's a basis in technology that we all understand and we're all more or less comfortable with.

Simple to be able to use that technology. How did we design this?

But absolutely, I think the skills are more prevalent and practiced in younger generations due to early technology exposure.
