Social Physics - Reinventing Analytics to Better Predict Human Behaviors

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.

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.

While there is no one definition everyone can agree to, we generally think that somebody who is intelligent is good at lots of cognitive tasks, including solving problems, comprehending complex ideas, reasoning and planing, learning quickly, adapting to new situations, and so on.

Scaling the Heights of Language, its Learning, and its Teaching

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Complex dynamic systems. Complexity theory - scientists seek patterns and relations within systems. Complex is not the same as complicated - an automobile is complicated, but not complex. The example of a murmuration is an example of complexity.

The 2010 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

This time around, the primary challenge emerging out of the CEO conversations was pretty clear: complexity. CEOs told us they operate in a world that is substantially more volatile, uncertain and complex. Nearly 80% of CEOs expect the business environment to grow significantly more complex over time, but less than half believe that their organizations are equipped to deal with it successfully. Globalization is one of the major causes of this complexity gap.

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

Thinking in Models: for Design, for Learning… A large part of this talk is about that change. When you look at that, basically it''s like they have this model or design in their head of how we could rebuild the university system, wipe it all out, start over, and we''ll have a new model.

Think anew, Act anew: Scenario Planning

Dave Snowden

Some time ago I outlined the basic principles of managing a complex system and promised to use them to explore a range of management issues. Given the time since I first introduced this topic (I planned a couple of weeks, but its panned out as the best part of half a year) I'd suggest a quick read of the original post, which concluded with three necessary, although not necessarily sufficient conditions for any strategy based on complexity theory.

A Year in Photos

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Organizations aren’t thinking about the ‘networked individual’ – the networking choices and patterns of individual Internet users. In the MOOC part I outlined the history of our work with MOOCs, and then appealed to connectivism to inform the design principle underlying them.

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. But in any field, students will have to graduate from the simpler transmission mode of instruction to the more complex immersion mode of instruction.

MOOC - The Resurgence of Community in Online Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Hence, a MOOC is to my mind, defined along the following four dimensions: [slide 3 – massive] Massive - here I mean not necessarily the success of the MOOC in attracting many people, but in the design elements that make educating many people possible. In practice, what this means is a system designed so that bottlenecks are not created in any of the four attributes: modeling, demonstration, practice, and reflection. but also to be involved in the design of these.

It’s Like This… : Andrew McAfee’s Blog

Andy McAfee

Dear Andrew, Things are bit more complex in the real world and BTW I saw your interview on the Charlie Show. SAPs of the world need to go a component based model and leave the designing of the business processes (using these components to the innovative minds of the digital factory ). Customized IT solutions for big companies would not follow this pattern, but enterprise IT is becoming more affordable and useable for smaller companies precisely by becoming more “off-the-shelf”.

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. 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.
