BBC – Future – Can this modern technology placed an end to harassing?

Breaking up with your first love is hard to do, but at the age of 18, it was a particularly traumatic experience for Nikki Mattocks. Rather than the clean break she had hoped for, she found herself being bombarded with hateful messages on social media from her ex-boyfriend’s friends. One even urged her to kill herself. “I withdrew a lot. The messages made me so depressed and led to me taking an overdose,” says Mattocks. She is just one of millions of people around the world who […]

ECM attributes of the future obtain an AI increase

Finding content within an enterprise content management platform is often a monumental task — especially when the content is not categorized correctly or is placed too deep within folders — but AI can finally help tackle the job of assigning file metadata on a scale that humans can’t. Enterprise content management (ECM) vendors can use AI to help improve the end-user experience and add functionality to their platforms. Here are some predictions for how AI can play a role in new ECM systems. Document, image searches […]

Ray Kurzweil on mankind’s nanobot-filled future

MARTIN FORD: You’re also well known for your thoughts on using technology to expand and extend human life. Could you let me know more about that? RAY KURZWEIL: One thesis of mine is that we’re going to merge with the intelligent technology that we are creating. The scenario that I have is that we will send medical nanorobots into our bloodstream. One application of these medical nanorobots will be to extend our immune systems. That’s what I call the third bridge to radical life extension. The first […]

Does Journalism Have a Long run?

The wood-panelled tailgate of the 1972 Oldsmobile station wagon dangled open like a broken jaw, making a wobbly bench on which four kids could sit, eight legs swinging. Every Sunday morning, long before dawn, we’d get yanked out of bed to stuff the car’s way-back with stacks of twine-tied newspapers, clamber onto the tailgate, cut the twine with my mother’s sewing scissors, and ride around town, bouncing along on that bench, while my father shouted out orders from the driver’s seat. “Watch out for the dog!” he’d […]

Just How Generation Z Will Certainly Change the Future Office

Generation Z is entering the workplace. Because of their high-tech and hyper-connected upbringing, they will bring a new set of behaviors, expectations, and preferences into the workplace. 1. Wider Generational Gap at Work The workplace entrance of Generation Z will only increase the complexity of managing and working across generations, especially considering that more than 75 percent of workers identify “managing multigenerational teams” and “different work expectations across generations” as challenges. Organizations must prioritize generational training to ensure the generational gap at work doesn’t continue to expand and […]

The duty of AI in future war

To illustrate how artificial intelligence (AI) could affect the future battlefield, consider the following scenario based on a future book I am writing entitled The Senkaku Paradox: Risking Great Power War over Limited Stakes. The scenario, imagined to occur sometime between now and 2040, begins with a hypothesized Russian “green men” attack against a small farming village in eastern Estonia or Latvia. Russia’s presumed motive would be to sow discord and dissent within NATO, weakening the alliance. Estonia and Latvia are NATO member states, and thus the […]

The future of aesthetic search: wise glasses, AR as well as retail o.

What might search be like in 20 years’ time? This was the question I was called upon to contemplate for a recent Google Performance Firestarters event, ‘Twenty years on: The present and future of search’. Together with three other speakers, I was invited to give a presentation about the possibilities for the future of search, and what they might mean for performance marketing. Over the next two decades, I believe that we’ll see search develop in two key directions. First of all, we’ll see voice search take […]
