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. Here are just a few: - access - it is demonstrably true that educational technology has increased access.

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. Off-Grid Devices Draw Drinking Water from Dry Air - “Sunlight-powered moisture-absorbing technologies are becoming economical”.

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 and Cybercrime Detection

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Social physics is based on the premise that all event-data representing human activity, - e,g,, phone call records, credit card purchases, taxi rides, web activity, - contain a special set of group behavior patterns.

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.

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.

AI - the Creation of a Human-Centric Engineering Discipline

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

AI is rapidly becoming one of the most important technologies of our era. the discipline focused on finding patterns in data and on making well-founded predictions, tests of hypotheses and decisions.”.

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.

Human-AI Decision Systems

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

It’s enabled the construction of AI algorithms that can be trained with lots and lots of sample inputs, which are subsequently applied to difficult AI problems, including natural language processing, language translation and computer vision.

Its ensuing digital products have been generating all that data and its drastically lower technology costs have made it possible to store and analyze those oceans of information.

Creating More Intelligent Organizations

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The CCI was founded to study how new communications technologies are changing the way people work together. organize these collaborations and enhance them with innovative IT-based. I recently read a fascinating online conversation on Collective Intelligence with Tom Malone.

Human-AI Decision Systems

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Traditionally, decision systems have been confined to individual physical domains, such as logistics, physical plant, and human resources, and more recently virtual domains such as cyber, by both policy and technology, resulting in challenges with the integration of information across disparate domains.”. As new data is ingested, the system rewires itself based on whatever new patterns it now finds.

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. It’s only been in the last few years that complementary innovations, especially machine learning have taken AI from the lab to early marketplace adopters. Companies should look at AI through the lens of business opportunities, rather than technologies.

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. Standouts practice and encourage experimentation and innovation throughout their organizations.

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.

All The Good Ideas Links That Are Fit To Print

Steven Berlin Johnson

While Good Ideas is less conspicuously argumentative than the last big conversation-starter I wrote, Everything Bad Is Good For You , it does make a sustained argument about how societies innovate, and I’d hoped that reviewers and bloggers and op-ed columnists would pick up on that argument. I got my start as a journalist writing about technology for the UK Guardian, and so it was particularly fun to see this feature by the very clever Oliver Burkeman run in its pages.

Pick of the Month: August 2012

Jane Hart

… Social technologies have the potential to free up expertise trapped in departmental silos. What really happens is that one innovation is built on top of what’s gone before. August is typically a quiet month, but there have been plenty of good blog posts and articles around.

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

Andy McAfee

And he immediately hit on an apparent paradox: how can universally available technology contribute to competitive differentiation? Instead, they both provide environments thatinventors and innovators use to bring their ideas to life. 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 ). How is that being harnessed and innovated upon by the buyer?
