Economist Andrew McAfee highlighted that the future of jobs will change because of machines. If we all agree this scenario will happen, what should we do now? People have jobs when the employers demand for certain skills from people. If those skills can be replaced by machines, employers will not hire people. In the extreme case, if most skills can be performed by machines, what work is left for people to do? Wait a minute, but why should people be so passive and left their j
Scientist at Fujitsu explained what artificial intelligence is from ground up, and eventually how it will impact the job market. Think about why A.I. will eliminate our jobs? As human beings become more literate about how we think and what intelligence really is, we can build intelligence itself from our knowledge. If our understanding about intelligence is correct and we can replicate it artificially, the type of intelligence that we are creating is going to replace some if
During 1990s, Ned Herrmann, the creator of HBDI and Whole Brain Thinking, said that some people cannot tell the relationship between the brain and management. In fact, the brain matters everything that we do - including management of an organisation, of course. By studying how the brain works, how other people's brains work and their thinking styles are, managers have a better grasp of their team members and hence their behaving in different situations. Rookie managers only l
If you are not creative, how do you think more creatively? First of all, you should learn about how creative people think. Have you noticed that creative people usually generate many associations from one idea (sometimes overly)? Association is what makes an idea yields more ideas, while some ideas will never work, the more associations, the more likely that innovative ideas will be produced as a result. But if you are not creative, how do you make more associations?
Blockchain Expert Bettina Warburg said blockchain works because of "mutual distrust" exists between people. Blockchain in essence allows us to interact with each other in a decentralized way without the need for a central authority. In a rapidly advancing technological world, people trust codes or algorithms more than human beings, to the extent that we even stop trusting those central authorities that actually made things work in the past. How did we reach this extreme level
Jean-Claude Biver said bluntly, "No innovation, no life. No innovation, no future." It might sounds exaggerated to some people, but he cannot be more straight to the point than this. Our world advanced so rapidly over the past 50 years or so, and the speed of technological advancement is accelerating. Knowledge has also became cheap. What is more valuable than knowledge?
First of all, why do we need tools? Human beings invent tools to help themselves do certain tasks better, faster, in bigger scale and work more effectively. A tool is a leverage, it empowers us. When we are designing tools for thinking, we are leveraging the power of such tools to make us think better - the end result is ever more profound because whatever we create in the physical world is a product of our thinking.
Why do we innovate? Other than commercial purpose, does innovation work? Interestingly, any tool or technology that human beings have invented is neutral on itself, but we tend to take advantage of those inventions for profit-making purpose, and succeeded. What if we utilize those inventions for serving humanity needs without maximizing the profits to ourselves? This Peer-to-Peer technology seem to have a lot of potential in this direction.
How do you "think out of the box"? How many times have you heard of people saying this phrase? Then the next minute, you discovered that they are actually the most "in-the-box" people you have ever met? Perhaps, this is because they always believe the box exists. What if it doesn't exist? The founder of iMindMap, Chris Griffiths shares a few techniques to help you think better.
As human beings, we are so proud of our superior intelligence over other living things and ruling the Earth. But are we really so intelligent? Do other living things have intelligence at all, or are they really so dumb? This discovery will surprise you: a primitive life form has intelligence that is smarter than you think.
