Share Best Practices - Patterns

Tony Karrer

Dodged that bullet. :) Patterns and Knowledge Work I understand the concern that when you share best practices, you may come out with very different results. Making sense generates cues and allows one to recognize patterns, both in the nature of the problem and response.

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.

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. AI is rapidly becoming one of the most important technologies of our era.

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.

A Framework for Building AI Capabilities

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

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. Companies should look at AI through the lens of business opportunities, rather than technologies.

In addition, the article nicely explains the technologies developed by the Google Brain research project to achieve its breakthrough improvements. As new data is ingested, the system rewires itself based on whatever new patterns it now finds.

Creating More Intelligent Organizations

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The CCI was founded to study how new communications technologies are changing the way people work together. It has identified a set of organizational genes or basic building blocks that apply to just about all of them, as well as a number of design patterns that come up over and over.

A Framework for Building AI Capabilities

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

AI will likely become the most important technology 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 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.

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. The patterns of change in higher education are surprisingly similar and global.

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.

Think anew, Act anew: Scenario Planning

Dave Snowden

Their reports of the sessions appeared to most of us, to confirm with the sample outcomes we had been shown rather than the spirited and diverse discussions we had engaged in. The diversity of participants in the process is also an issue and there are inherent dangers of pattern entrainment in workshop processes. To do this we need technology. Managing future uncertainties was fundamental to its design.

Czech Course Followup Questions

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Over time this sort of perception will be aided with technology, just as we are aided in visual recognition by glasses and telescopes and video monitors. 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.

Creative Commons Use in For-Profit Company eLearning?

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 ''collective'' aspect of social tagging basically comes from what the technology does. A technology recommender system was developed based on the principles of this model. The recommended learnss for each person all the tag assocciations they have done in the past, and then tries to match this pattern to all the different examples. As designers we can do better, online environments that are as engaging as actual games, but embedded in real science.

MOOC - The Resurgence of Community in Online Learning

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

And he immediately hit on an apparent paradox: how can universally available technology contribute to competitive differentiation? 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 ). It is of course possible that the reduction is due to globalization which is itself a side-effect of the technology world but I think it is still too early to tell.

How the Net Works

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The purpose of this paper is to describe how network learning works and to show how an understanding of network learning can inform the design and evaluation of online learning applications. Models The title of this paper does not refer to the Internet or Internet technologies specifically, but rather, at the use of networks and network theory generally in support of teaching and learning. To learn is to instantiate patterns of connectivity in the brain.

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.
