From Horseless Carriages to Driverless Vehicles

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) may well be the quintessential symbol of our AI/robotics age. Cars are a major part of our daily lives. A self-driven car is a concept that requires little explanation, something we can all quickly grasp.

Book Review: Friend of a Friend

Dan Pontefract

You're reading fresh content from Dan Pontefract at Brave New Org: Network. It can be such a loaded and overbearing term. On the one hand, it’s a noun. Among other definitions, it can denote a group. Dan's Related Posts: Did I Just Spam My Entire LinkedIn Network?

Blog Post: We live in a hyperconnected, socio-technical world

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen As I write my blook on Conversational Leadership , I find myself capturing fragments of ideas that I know will get refined and fit in somewhere in due course. Here is one such fragment: We are not separate from the world. We are integrally connected. We are each a node of one huge global network. It is as if we are all attached by a large number of elastic bands to a multitude of other nodes: people, things, places, and history.

Context is key

Clark Quinn

Workflow learning is one of the new buzzphrases. The notion is that you deliver learning to the point of need, instead of taking people away from the workflow. And I’m a fan. But it’s not as easy as it sounds! Context is a critical issue in making this work, and that’s non-trivial.

knowledge filters revisited

Harold Jarche

The concept of filtering sources of knowledge has informed the personal knowledge mastery framework for many years, as explained here in knowledge filters (2011).

Happy Virtual Anniversary Me ! !

Nine Shift

2 0 years ago today I blew up my organization's 10,000 square foot national headquarters, with library, conference and seminar room, beautiful desks, an office for my secretary (that's what we called assistants back then), and my vision of an indoor fountain to welcome visitors from all over the world. People from Hong Kong, Australia, and across North American actually did travel to Manhattan, Kansas, to visit us.

Nuances Matter

Clark Quinn

I’ve argued before that the differences between well-designed and well-produced learning, and just well-produced learning, are subtle. And, in general, nuances matter. So, in my recent book, the section on misconceptions spent a lot of time unpacking some terms.

human capital

Harold Jarche

“No, people are NOT capital. YOUR ‘human capital’ is what you’ve learned and not forgotten. It’s ‘capital’ each person ‘owns’ themselves; FAR more equally distributed than financial capital. Our economy needs institutions to make learning and earning better for those with less money.”

Tips 150


Euen Semple

There is something profoundly intimate about the conversations that we have online. Our handheld devices are becoming extensions of our physical bodies and our interactions feel as if they are directly wired into our brains. These apparently trivial little chunks of text that we exchange rattle around inside our skulls like overexcited neurones. They affect our moods. They cause delight or distress. Collectively they bring to life Teilhard de Chardin's noosphere as never before.

Are Private Trains the Answer to Highway Congestion?

Nine Shift

The question was asked in a Today segment earlier this month with NBC's Kerry Sanders reporting. The short answer is No. Yes, trains are the answer to highway congestion, in fact they are the answer to highways, and are replacing cars for this century. We predicted this in 2005 on BBC worldwide radio. Private trains will operate on the tracks, but the tracks will be owned by the people, the government, the public sector.

From Horseless Carriages to Driverless Vehicles

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) may well be the quintessential symbol of our AI/robotics age. Cars are a major part of our daily lives. A self-driven car is a concept that requires little explanation, something we can all quickly grasp. It wasn’t that long ago that the notion on an AV driving us around while we read or sleep would have felt like the stuff of science fiction.

Blog Post: Knowledge Management Matters: Creativity and Innovation

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen I mentioned a month or two back a new book Knowledge Management Matters: By Practitioners for Practitioners written by a number of well known KM practitioners and edited by John and JoAnn Girard. The book is free and you can download it from here. John Girard tells me that about 1000 people have downloaded a copy of the book already and that they are in the process of developing a series of companion videos, the first of which is now available on YouTube.

Not fighting what is

Euen Semple

Not fighting what is I love mountains and I love climbing them. In the past, having to cancel our walk up Foel Fras in Snowdonia yesterday due to the thundery weather, would have left me in a very bad mood. I would have felt sorry for myself and resentful that the weather wasn't what I wanted. I would have spent the day with a metaphorical, self induced, cloud over my head.

Blog Post: Cognitive Edge and Code Genesys to Combine Operations

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen You may not have heard that Cognitive Edge and Code Genesys have announced a merger of their business operations. The new company will be known as Cognitive Edge. Ajay Reddy of Code Genesys will be CEO of the merged company and Dave Snowden, cofounder of the original Cognitive Edge, will be Chief Scientific Officer. See the press release. I have been a huge admirer of Dave's work now for more years than I care to remember and wish him all the best in this new venture.

Blog Post: Flip charts and butcher paper get in the way of the conversation

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen One of the fundamental principles of the Knowledge Café is that anything that gets in the way of the free flow of the conversation is a bad thing and should be eliminated. Another principle is that everyone is equal. Flip charts and butcher paper on tables contravene both of these principles, and in general in a Knowledge Café, you should avoid their use. Take a look here if you would like to learn more on my rationale for this.
