The Current State of Open Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In January, UC Berkeley professor Henry Chesbrough published Open Innovation Results : Going Beyond the Hype and Getting Down to Business, his fourth book on innovation in the last two decades. Chesbrough is adjunct professor and faculty director of the Garwood Center for Corporate Innovation at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. He’s credited with coining the term open innovation in his 2003 book of the same title. Business model innovation.

Full-text searching Harvard Library

David Weinberger

Harvard is digitizing many of them, but as of now you cannot do a full text search of them. You can do full-text searches of them. So, I wrote a little app that lets you search Google Books for text, and then matches up the results with books in Harvard Library. This project runs on top of LibraryCloud , an open source library metadata server created by the Harvard Library Innovation Lab that I co-direct (until Sept.).

Are Innovation and R&D Yielding Decreasing Returns?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Given the pace of technological change, we tend to think of our age as the most innovative ever. These innovations, first developed in the late 19th and early 20th century, have long been transforming the lives of billions. Innovation may be hitting a wall of diminishing returns. must double the amount of research effort searching for new ideas every 13 years to offset the increased difficulty of finding new ideas.”.

Steven Berlin Johnson

» Radical New Innovation at Outside.in: Search! Forgot to mention that we finally restored search to outside.in. We had a pretty lame search function in the original iteration of the site, which we decided to just kill off because it wasnt very useful (and, perhaps because it wasnt useful, no one was using it.) But we decided a few weeks ago to do a little mod of Google site search, which turns out to work very well.

The MIT Inclusive Innovation Competition

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

As i ts website explains: “While digital technologies are rapidly transforming both business practices and societies and are integral to the innovation-driven economies of the future, they are also the core driver of the great economic paradox of our time. How can we accelerate the transformation of institutions, organizations, and human skills to keep up with the quickening pace of digital innovation?

Serverless Computing - An Innovative Approach to Software Development

Cloud Computing Innovation Services Innovation Technology and StrategyI n October of 2008, The Economist published a special report on a then relatively new, rapidly growing IT development, - cloud computing.

Innovation in open online courses

George Siemens

This is a short overview of the innovations that we want to explore during the course. The innovations build heavily on community and network approaches that I and others (Stephen Downes, David Wiley, Alan Levine, Jim Groom, Dave Cormier) have used in previous open courses. The connection between learning and application is hampered as MOOC resources do not always persist after a course has ended and there is limited search functionality in MOOCs.

The “Recombinant” Nature of Digital Innovations

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Customer self-service is an excellent example of recombinant innovations , which UC Davis professor Andrew Hargadon defines as innovations that “rather than chasing whole new ideas, [are] focused on recombining old ideas in new ways.” The basic premise behind these kinds of innovations is the search for breakthrough ideas that might lead to the creation of new products, markets and industries based on novel combinations of existing technologies .

Innovations

Clark Quinn

In the chapter on innovation , he talks about two types of experimentation: convergent and divergent. And I was reminded that I think of two types of innovations as well. He talks about how experimentation is the key to innovation (in fact, the chapter title is Innovate by Rapid Experimentation). Innovation. These roughly correspond to the two types of innovation I think of. I think of this as short-term innovation.

The Impact of AI on R&D and Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For the past couple of centuries, general-purpose technologies (GPTs) have been the key drivers of productivity and economic growth, - thanks to their rapid improvements in price and performance, pervasive applications, and ability to spur complementary innovations across a wide variety of industries. Beyond innovations in existing sectors, the rapidly improving price/performance of GPTs have led over time to the creation of whole new applications and industries.

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.

A Great Stagnation or a New Golden Age of Innovation?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

These new ventures continue to attract more and more financial capital from investors, which in turn helps improve the quality and lowers the cost of the new disruptive technology and leads to many new innovative applications. But inevitably, the investments in new companies and applications turns into unsustainable speculation, leading to a financial bubble which eventually crashes. New paradigms emerge for guiding innovation and for determining winners and losers in the marketplace.

The 9 kinds of context that will define contextual search

Trends in the Living Networks

One of the many topics I discussed was the rise of contextual search. Looking back over the last decade, I think it’s fair to say that the search experience has not evolved much. Clearly it is a nonsense to always get the same search result, irrespective of who you are and all of the conditions surrounding the search. Searches for local destinations may be impacted by current weather, such as pubs with beer gardens being more prominent on sunny days.

Are we in for perpetual innovation?

David Weinberger

Even within particular functional areas, say, search engines? Or will we be constantly innovating the basic navigational systems of the Net? Or, will some systems become settled — say, search engines with text entry boxes (and their oral equivalent) and lists of results — while there is wild innovation in other areas? But, if I had to bet, I’d say that we’re in for perpetual innovation, with some inventions lasting longer than others.

The Legend of Apple and Xerox PARC and the Truth About Innovation

He uses Steve Jobs’ legendary 1979 visit to Xerox PARC as the springboard for his reflections on the nature of revolutionary innovations. In the 1970s, PARC was the mecca for innovation in computing. His objective was the search for knowledge, not the development of a product. The innovator says go.

Innovating our way out of the industrial era

Harold Jarche

Corporate America has, for the most part, chosen a poor path when it comes to IT labor issues, but CEOs aren’t into soul-searching and nobody can turn back the clock. The only answer that makes any sense is innovation — a word that neither side uses properly, ever. The only way out of this mess is to innovate ourselves into a better future. Inside organizations, innovation can be facilitated through narration, transparency and power-sharing.

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.

Despite Their Huge Upside Potential, Why Do Most Platforms Fail?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The book offer a simple definition. “Platforms, in general, connect individuals and organizations for a common purpose or to share a common resource.” A platform strategy differs from a product strategy in that it relies on an external ecosystem to generate complementary innovations and/or business transactions. The effect is much greater potential for innovation and growth than a single product-oriented firm can generate alone. years, innovation ones 5.0
