Digital Transformation of Business and Society. Digital Transformation of Business and Society At a recent KPMG Robotic Innovations event, Futurist and friend Gerd Leonhard delivered a keynote titled “The Digital Transformation of Business and Society: Challenges and Opportunities by 2020”.
I highly recommend viewing the Video of his presentation. As Gerd describes, he is a Futurist focused on foresight and observations — not predicting the future. We are at a point in history where every company needs a Gerd Leonhard. For many of the reasons presented in the video, future thinking is rapidly growing in importance. With regard to future thinking, Gerd used my future scenario slide to describe both the exponential and combinatorial nature of future scenarios — not only do we need to think exponentially, but we also need to think in a combinatorial manner. He then described our current pivot point of exponential change: a point in history where humanity will change more in the next twenty years than in the previous 300. Source: B.

Whenever something is happening, people around the world start tweeting away. Often they include hashtags, allowing us to selectively search for tweets about a certain event or thing. Many twitter users also engage in conversations, and looking at these conversations allows us to identify leaders and frequent actors. In this lesson, we will look how to harvest tweets from Twitter using ScraperWiki and how to analyse them using social network analysis and software called Gephi. What you will need Harvesting Tweets using ScraperWiki The first thing we need to do is to get tweets out of Twitter.
There are various tools to get tweets out of Twitter. Walkthrough: Harvesting tweets with ScraperWiki. Smart Cities with BigData - FIWARE: an open standard platform for smart cities. Technology Leaders Unite Around ‘Open Data Platform’ to Increase Enterprise Adoption of Apache Hadoop® and Big Data. GE, Hortonworks, IBM, Infosys, Pivotal, SAS, and Altiscale, Capgemini, CenturyLink, EMC, Teradata, Splunk, Verizon and VMware join forces to drive collaboration, innovation, and standardization across big data technologies San Francisco, Calif., February 17, 2015 – Industry leaders in the big data space, including Platinum members GE, Hortonworks, IBM, Infosys, Pivotal, SAS, a large international telecommunications firm, and Gold members Altiscale, Capgemini, CenturyLink, EMC, Splunk, Verizon Enterprise Solutions, Teradata, and VMware today announced their intent to create an industry association, identified as the Open Data Platform (“ODP”).

Internet of Things Market & Machine to Machine (M2M) Communications by Technologies & Platforms. Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications describes how the Internet will expand as sensors and intelligence are connected to physical things such as physical assets or consumer devices and these things in turn are connected to the Internet.
The vision and model have existed for years, but there has been acceleration in the number and types of things being connected and in the technologies for collecting, processing, and sharing information. The market research report explores some of the key applications for IoT and M2M communications, including consumer electronics, automotive and transportation, energy and utilities, industrial and commercial buildings, and others. The Internet of Things market allows different combinations of smart things/objects and sensor network technologies.

The F*cking Tube Strike. A Big Data use case. Gross National Happiness. The phrase Gross National Happiness (GNH); Wylie: gyal-yong ga'a-kyid pal-'dzoms) was coined in 1972 by Bhutan's fourth Dragon King, Jigme Singye Wangchuck.
This is also a KPI... Think out-of-the-box! Let's relate this to the presentation of the relation between health and wealth. Can we measure empathy? Are social media helpfull or just a smoke curtain for real feelings? – maarten1962
The phrase was coined as a signal of commitment to building an economy that would serve Bhutan's culture based on Buddhist spiritual values instead of the western material development that was represented by gross domestic product (GDP). Slogan about Gross National Happiness in Thimphu's School of Traditional Arts.

Hans Rosling makes the case for the washing machine. With newly designed graphics from Gapminder, Rosling shows us the magic that pops up when economic growth and electricity turn a boring wash day into an intellectual day of reading. Hans Rosling: the man who makes statistics sing. “No!”
He says, almost shouting, when we meet in a function room of a utilitarian west London hotel. “Statistics take up four pages in most daily newspapers – stock values and sport [league tables]. People don’t find these boring at all, but they don’t think of them as ‘statistics’. If you support Man United or Arsenal, or if your stock falling means you can’t go on holiday, you are interested. It’s only boring if you get data you didn’t ask for, or if you don’t realise its link with the real world.” “That’s an exceptionally stupid citation,” says Rosling, who reckons it is most often employed by people who have a fear of maths. A professor in international health at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Rosling has used his moving graphs to illustrate everything from the percentage of women worldwide using contraception, to the average amount of sleep enjoyed per night in various countries.
“We face huge challenges,” Rosling says. Hans Rosling: The best stats you've ever seen. 11 must-see TED Talks. How Gamification will change Business Intelligence. Making BI Analytics Fun. Making BI Analytics Fun The search for BI insight already has a game-like feel to it.
Advocates of "gamification" want to amplify this effect and immerse BI users in their task. The greatest trick Tom Sawyer ever pulled was when he convinced his friends to help him paint Aunt Polly's fence on a beautiful Saturday morning. It was a trick, to be sure, but none of Tom's friends seemed to know (or even to care) that he'd been tricked. Painting a fence is hard work -- on a splendid Saturday morning -- with a 12-year-old's mindset -- is thankless work. BI Mobile Labs — Gamification of BI??

Before doing business in big data, consider the shifting ethical landscape. In the 18th and 19th centuries, the sun famously never set on the British empire.
A commanding navy enforced its will, yet all would have been lost if it were not for ports, roads, and railroads. The infrastructure that the British built everywhere they went embedded and enabled their power like bones and veins in a body. Great nations have done this since Rome paved 55,000 miles (89,000 km) of roads and aqueducts in Europe. In the 19th and 20th centuries, Russia and the United States established their own imprint, skewering and taming nearby territories with projects like the Trans-Siberian and the Trans-Continental railways. Now it’s the turn of the Chinese. Yet these profiles of an allegedly grasping and treacherous China tend to consider its ambitions in disconnected pieces. A whole latticework of infrastructure… is growing into history’s most extensive global commercial empire.
