An Emerging Platform for Digital, Inclusive Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The Internet became an incredible platform for innovation, enabling startups, large institutions, and everyone in between to quickly develop and bring to market many new digital products and services. Its reach and connectivity led to the creation of all kinds of innovative, digital applications. Together, these advances are giving rise to an Internet-based platform for digital, inclusive innovations. Inclusive innovation is a relatively new concept.

Blockchain - the Networked Ecosystem is the Business

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Based on the analysis of over 25 blockchain networks in various stages of production across multiple industries and geographies, the report recommends that a company’s blockchain journey should evolve along three distinct stages: in search of value, - establishing a minimum value ecosystem; getting to scale - creating value for an overall industry; and designing for new markets, - creating entirely new markets and business models.

The Economic Value of Artificial Intelligence

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

trillion of the expected GDP growth will come from productivity gains, especially in the near term. Companies that are slow to adopt these AI-based productivity improvements will find themselves at a serious competitive disadvantage. But, over time, increased consumer demand for AI-enhanced offerings will overtake productivity gains and result in an additional $9.1

The Evolution of the Internet of Very Smart Things

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

These systems were optimized for simplicity and flexibility, and their graphical user interfaces led to many innovative applications, including the new web-based applications in the 1990s. Their overall conclusion is that “a low-cost, private-by-design democracy of devices will emerge that will enable new digital economies and create new value, while offering consumers and enterprises fundamentally better products and user experiences.” .

The Rise of the On-Demand Economy

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

These workers, many of them unionized, enjoyed relatively secure, stable jobs and a number of company benefits, including health care insurance, vacations and retirement pensions. . In the more recent past, these relatively slow moving organizations were not able to keep up with fast changing technologies and markets, nor could individuals assume that being loyal to a company would translate into a secure job with good benefits. .

Blockchains: the Promise of More Frictionless, Trusted Economies

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Professor Coase explained that, in principle, a firm should be able to find the cheapest, most productive, highest quality goods and services by contracting them out in an efficient, open marketplace. Transaction costs are a kind of friction incurred in obtaining goods and services outside the firm, such as searching for the right supply chain partners, establishing a trusted relationship, negotiating a contract, coordinating the work, managing intellectual property and so on.

The Future of Financial Services

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

By analyzing the earliest recorded transactions, researchers believe that writing evolved in ancient Mesopotamia thousands of years ago, as an innovation to keep track of financial records. Financial services (FS) was one of the first industries to embrace ICT, automating their back-office and branch operations and developing innovations like credit cards and ATMs. Periods of rapid ICT and FS innovation are followed by lengthy periods of stability and consolidation.

How Will AI Likely Impact How We Work, Live and Play?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Public safety and security. “One of the more successful uses of AI analytics is in detecting white collar crime, such as credit card fraud. Perceptual algorithms for functions such as image labeling, and 3D object recognition, while common at AI conferences, are still only a few years into development as products.”. To be successful, AI innovations will need to overcome understandable human fears of being marginalized.

Shaping the Future of the Internet

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

This generality has enabled the Internet to become a powerful platform for innovation, but it’s come at a price: it’s good-enough but not optimal for any one application. As a result, there’s no one overall owner responsible for security , - arguably the biggest challenge facing the Internet. The responsibility for security is divided among several actors, making it significantly harder to achieve.

e-Clippings (Learning As Art): Zone Alarm Listen UP!! This is NOT Customer Service!

Mark Oehlert

Normally I run Zone Alarms security suite of products and I generally think they are the best out there - they are certainly better than Norton in terms of being Norton being such a resource hog. My problem, beyond the obvious, is that the response from Zone Alarm acts as if this is just something that happens all the time (probably does) but worse than that - that it is somehow acceptable to create a product that routinely kills multiple hours of customers time fixing the problem!

The Emerging Data Economy

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Data is now being generated by just about everything and everybody around us, including the growing volume of online and offline transactions, web searches, social media interactions, billions of smart mobile devices and 10s of billions of smart IoT sensors. To reach a higher level of privacy and security we need to establish a trusted data ecosystem, which requires the interoperability and sharing of data across the various institutions involved.

Computing Beyond Moore’s Law

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Once IT started moving up-the-stack, we became less dependent on the exponential improvements in components, relying more on innovations in systems architecture, algorithms and applications. More and more major businesses and industries are being run on software and delivered as online services - from movies to agriculture to national defense.” Entrepreneurial companies all over the world are disrupting established industries, with innovative software-based solutions.

Anticipating the Future of the IT Industry

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Which hot technology innovations, - e.g., artificial intelligence, the blockchain, cloud computing, - will end up having a big impact and which are destined to fizzle? Data centers have now become the production plants of cloud-based services , a transformation that’s been pioneered by born-to-the-cloud companies like Amazon, Google, and Salesforce. In the end, innovation is a journey into the future.

The Nature of the Firm in the Digital Economy

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In early July I participated in the 2013 Roundtable on Institutional Innovation sponsored by the Aspen Institute’s Communications and Society Program. The Center’s co-leaders John Hagel and John Seely Brown , recently published Institutional Innovation , an article on the evolution of organizations. This individual freedom leads to innovation, specialization, economic fragmentation and the formation of lots of companies of all sorts.

Open, Collaborative Trust Frameworks

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

ID³ , - the Institute for Institutional Innovation by Data Driven Design, - is a new multidisciplinary non-profit institution formed to develop architectural frameworks, open source software and educational content for the protection, sharing and monetization of sensitive data. Self-organizing, open communities are now well accepted as a production model for complex initiatives with major societal benefits, - like trust frameworks.

Why Do Firms Exist?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

He explained that, in principle, a firm should be able to find the cheapest, most productive goods and services by contracting them out in an efficient, open marketplace. Transaction costs are incurred in obtaining goods and services outside the firm, such as searching for the right people, negotiating a contract, coordinating the work, managing intellectual property and so on. Processes are put in place as people learn how to improve the productivity and quality of their work.

The Power of Pull

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

But, labor productivity has been steadily rising, and is now nearly double what it was in 1965. Where have the benefits of these productivity gains gone? The key challenge was to manage the growing means of production in the most efficient way possible. The hierarchically organized enterprise was the management model adopted by businesses to help them scale their production of goods and services.

An integrated and seamless ability to have some sense of security in the audience can increase the level of disclosure which in turn can foster a higher level of collaboration that can benefit the community writ large.

Reflections on the Nature of Human Organizations

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Furthermore, larger organizations are typically accompanied by an increase in human interactions which improve their overall creativity and potential for innovation. When Dr. West and his colleagues looked at wages, educational institutions, patents, cultural events and other such measures of creativity and innovation, they found that if you double the size of the city, all these measures will go up by 2 1.15 Cities are centers of economic activity, innovation and creativity.

Extreme Scale Computing

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In the quest for the fastest machines, supercomputers have always been at the leading edge of advances in IT, identifying the key barriers to overcome and experimenting with technologies and architectures that generally then appear in more commercial products a few years later. Such massive parallelism will require major innovations in the architecture, software and applications for exascale systems.

Cloud Computing and the Evolution Toward the "Outside-In," Virtual Enterprise

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A couple of weeks ago, I attended a very stimulating meeting in Madrid sponsored by the Bankinter Innovation Foundation. The Foundation was started in 2003 by Bankinter , - one of the largest commercial banks in Spain, - in order to foster entrepreneurial innovation in the country. The use of such standard services and best practices have brought major improvements in productivity and quality in manufacturing industries over the past three decades.
