From atoms to bits (and back again)

121 views

Published on

After almost a quarter of a century of “being digital” where are our organizations? Why do we still need the consulting firms of the world to publish manifestos and howtos about “organizing for a digital world” or “the case for digital reinvention”? Is there a digital divide in the C suite? Will startups really disrupt incumbents? Do you have FOMO? Did it really take 25 years to get from “New Information and Communications Technologies” to ICT, to IT… can we agree just on the “T” now? Or do we call it Innovation? Free advice: it will not worked out as planned. This session will hopefully provide as many answers as questions and the speaker sure hopes to make it as entertaining as though provoking.

  7. 7. Bits and Atoms and Being Digital Date: 1.1.95 From: <nicholas@media.mit.edu>
 
 The distribution and movement of bits is much easier than atoms. 
 
 But delivery is only part of the issue. A media company is, among other things, a talent scout, and its distribution channels, bits or atoms, provide a test bed for public opinion. But after a certain point, the author may not need this forum. In the digital age, WIRED authors can sell their stories direct and make more money, once they are discovered. While this does not work today, it will work very well, very soon - when "being digital" becomes the norm. http://web.media.mit.edu/~nicholas/Wired/WIRED3-01.html
  8. 8. Digital manifestos, digital divide in the C Suite? • Bottom up vs top down approach
 • Framing PoC or Trials setup, operations and metrics/data
 • Vitamin or Pain Killer? Do you have a burning platform?

La définition de l’IA change tout le temps… “John McCarthy, who invented the name Artificial Intelligence, noted, the definition of specialized AI is changing all of the time. Specifically, once a task formerly thought to characterize artificial intelligence becomes routine — like the aforementioned chess-playing, or Go, or a myriad of other taken-for- granted computer abilities — we no longer call it artificial intelligence.” 3.
