Tools that emulate our thinking

Tools that emulate our thinking

A logical trend tools Knowledge Management is trying to simulate the natural way in which we organize our thoughts.

This was to provide an interface to create or attach easily content and relate to each other quickly and associative manner, avoiding the classic hierarchical organization that provide many applications. Thus the contents are organized in network structure, and become mental maps that structure our knowledge on specific topics.

An essential requirement is that the interface allows for navigation efficiency within the network to be created, allowing for the same move, reorganize, in and out of different levels, jump to a general view, clearly show relationships, and differentiate different types of content without actually mess map.

A good example of a tool that meets these requirements is Personal Brain. It can be downloaded from the website of TheBrain, Where he also played a video demo showing its capabilities and performance.

This software lets be creating  thoughts , and keep adding to each parent, child, or jumps (to thoughts of the same level), or go linking them to the Likewise. Each thought has properties, and it can be edited with a fairly complete notes editor, assign tags, urls of websites, icons, attach files or creating calendar events. Also a finder thoughts  and  content , and a small set of  reporting . Creating and navigating the map of thoughts is very agile, and very clear display, say its pretty hard to miss on the map.

From the same website you can download the trial version, which has all the functionality of version pro,  but after 30 days it becomes version free by clicking , which retains all the interface mapping and navigation, but is cut especially regarding the properties and objects that can be attached to thoughts . Between these two versions there is another version Core.

This is about the personal version , but also there is a corporate version called   BrainEKP More oriented collaboration and content management, but with the same philosophy and interface. The main difference is that this version is installed on a server, and both users and administrators access to web, allowing interaction and creation of collaborative thinking among users. It also has connectors that allow synchronization and updating of information from multiple data sources.

Also emphasize that the same portal The Brain It is made ​​with this tool. The header always shows the conceptual map of the page you are viewing, and can make navigating around the site simply by entering the thoughts that appear in this map, much better than the usual menu of the web..

E-commerce and artificial intelligence allies for the first time

E-commerce and artificial intelligence allies for the first time

These two concepts, e-commerce and artificial intelligence, seemingly distant, have joined for the first time with great success. But before talking about how they got here, let me put you in context both concepts separately.

On the one hand electronic commerce, also known as e-commerce, is based on the buying and selling of products and services through electronic means, such as Internet.

On the other hand, artificial intelligence (AI) is an area that includes different disciplines: logic, philosophy and computer science. This is able to raise designs reasoning and analyzing entities under the paradigm of human intelligence. In short, we speak of science that enables the creation of intelligent machines.

Artificial intelligence has made ​​continuous progress since the advent of the Internet, and this is one of the reasons I will end by joining the e-commerce a native Internet. Such advances in artificial intelligence have benefited the online business by developing algorithms designed to understand the needs of online customers. With this in mind certain online businesses have been able to take this opportunity to anticipate the demands of his audience, which these online stores are able to offer services or products for each customer even before this the request can deduct their needs very effectively.

With all that we dare to say that the actions of artificial intelligence are beginning to settle in e-commerce, offering a wide range of possibilities and alternatives for online stores to improve profitability.

Using AI tools to manage virtual stores will become a permanent feature of e-commerce in the near future .In fact one begins to see some platforms that allow real-time control data on the profile of our customers.

Because of this, professionals in the e-commerce sector have realized the importance of using own tools with AI getting very valuable information from the public which will create content for your website or other sales. That is, based on the results obtained from the use of different AI tools will decide which is the ideal for online content store in question.

For example, thanks to the artificial intelligence applied to e-commerce can recommend additional products to our customers according to customer purchase history.

Finally, artificial intelligence is not only in e-commerce, but even we can also apply it in search results .Thanks to the IA search engines can semantically understand the meaning of sentences, ie the meaning of the words, which no longer focus their efforts on keywords empty meaning.

There are many more benefits that we can bring it in e IA traded and in life in general and as the years go appear new.

Economy in the clouds: an introduction

cloud computing

In this global village, there are two essential attributes: distance and accessibility. The distance, by the process of globalization, open borders and diversity of transportation, attributed it would make the world smaller. Accessibility, in turn, is a bridge to the Virtual World.

This is another and opposite direction of the relative perception of space. The Virtual World is like the cosmos after the Big Bang. It stretches endlessly and the borders of its explosion are imperceptible. New services and social networks play areas, commerce, e-learning (e-learning), e-widening the space of all our fun and our work.

This new reality is being augmented with user activity. In turn, providing content storage devices require increasingly more optimization and data memory. The Virtual World expels a lot of information, of varying utility. As some say, we are creating a virtual cosmic dump, with which justify the development of new information technologies. However, this is, apparently, an unavoidable side effect of the development of civilization of information.

 

Predominant influence of new technologies

Dozen years ago, new technologies dominated especially in scientific laboratories and institutes and corporations in the pages of science fiction books. Today, new technologies become more accessible. There is not a day, an hour, a minute without comment, information that relates to new technologies. New technology dominated our thinking, are a part of our daily lives, we facilitate it, but sometimes can be an obstacle. Nevertheless, is the engine of development in todays economy? IT probably pervaded all spheres of our space fun, work and education. Bewildered, is the thesis that information technology is that possible? To some extent yes. Technology is the know-how, knowledge about the way of innovation or creation of new and more efficient method of performing a given task. Are we, today, able to imagine life without TI, without computers, smart phones without GPS navigation? It would be like suddenly we switched off the light, we cut electricity. What is imperceptible perceptible when we noticed their lack.

Civilization Information

The changes that are being made now are unnoticed, especially for a regular user of new IT technologies. It is a silent revolution that changed our world from 2.0 to 3.0. What is the reason for these numbers? It is an analog to the denomination numbering of the stages of development of the Internet. The Web 1.0 means HTML, Web 2.0 social networks and tools means. You may also be interpreted in the context of the progress of ICT market: I. Period of mainframe computers (mainframes) and terminal II. Era of personal computers, III. Period of cloud computing and mobile applications. According to futurist Alvin Toffler illustrious, we still at the stage of the third wave was postindustrial, was information and services. Welcome to the World 3.0!

For this publication, I opted for the next division of the development of world civilization information:

  • World 1.0 Digital Era
  • World 2.0 was Tech integration
  • World 3.0 Reconstruction Era (re-eventing)

The name of each of the stages is in any case agreed and serves only as an introduction to the presentation of knowledge and information covered by this publication. As in the case of Toffler waves, here too it is possible to indicate a demarcation line between the stages of development of civilization information. Phases overlap each other. Worldwide 3.0 shows characteristics of the Digital World, while in the World Tecnotrónico the World Reconstruction.

World 1.0 Digital Era

The characteristic features of the digital world include: information transfer based on oral tradition, books, newspapers, radio and television, while the predominant attributes of the media listed are: the printing press and radio. World 1.0 covers almost all of our history. Then came the industrial revolution accelerated technological development, increased production capacity, reorganization of work and life style. The same thing took place in the beginning of the Industrial Age, is happening now, but in another reality, scale and formal as then, many technologies completely reorganize branches, create new, they erased the lines between the classes old or make some of them disappear. The education system can not keep up with the changes taking place in the labor market; companies need specialists in new branches. This area collects harvest reorganization in the form of rising unemployment. This phenomenon occurs especially entrenched economically and commercially in the previous period. The analogies are more than obvious. Every great wave of technology brings the need for change, while those introduced inappropriately and not fast enough, leading to the crisis

World 2.0

The dominating faster new technologies is the individual user. It is our private area of ​​activity and usefulness of new solutions, which makes the entire construction of our world need modifications. However, the more organized structure, the more difficult changes. Not the first time that the business follows a path previously opened by the consumer market. Cloud was further used by the individual user by the user company.

The wave of changes initiated by hundreds of millions of individual users can not remain without impact on trade. What today causes more problems for large companies is perhaps applying the concept of Web 2.0 to its current activities. What is the main element in the activity of the individual user, the fact show itself and known to have one, openness and transparency are an obstacle of matter by the companies, which prefer to be closed, opaque and hierarchical. The fewer formalized structures, have more say employees. However, that is what, in most cases, companies try to avoid.

Companies are sort of based experimentation, which is carrying out a specific test for use of new variants, new methods of management and organization that is beneficial to the requirements of novo technology world. Not all goes well and not everyone will like them. Some companies and firms very resistant to change. However, like the old technologies have their place in the modern world, the old style of the organization, in some cases, remain. In this is evolution. The revolution, reorganizes many branches without pity, without considering the consequences, while in the background, the evolution continues. Adaptation to market requirements and client goes. As in nature organisms mutate to adapt to climate change and the strongest are those who win, here, similar processes are taking place. Win these trade bodies, which better and faster adapt to changes.

The biggest challenge for business incomparably larger than the Web 2.0 is the introduction of the solutions in the cloud. It is an unprecedented challenge, as even the computerization of the companies had a slower start. The acceleration is relentless. The Cloud is a challenge and at the same time, a risk. Cloud Computing (CC) changes the way in which business users make use of sources of computing power. The cloud represents a fundamental change to the traditional way of dynamic and flexible process. The Cloud is the modularity, scalability, speed of changes and adaptation to market needs. As business users of cloud computing, we obtain, among other things:

  • Big Data3
  • Virtualization
  • Defragmentation of devices
  • The Third Platform (Cloud Computing 1.0)
  • Mobile computing
  • Internet of Things
  • Internet of Services
  • Social Network Sites (social networks)
  • The Web 3.0

Reconstruction is the era of reorganization procedures and organizational structures: companies, state governments, schools, hospitals, banks. Paradoxically, all these institutions, most opposed to these changes, are the most in need and could take advantage of them. An area where there is a large amount of data, many users, a centralized organization structure and at the same time, geographically dispersed recreation is most required.

Algorithmic solutions to extract value from enterprise data

Algorithmic solutions to extract value from enterprise data

The rise of the Internet, social networks and the proliferation of sensors and detection and control mechanisms, leading to an amount of data available to companies and public bodies whose complexity continues to grow. The electronic traces we leave to surf the web, pay by card, call mobile, driving with a GPS system to buy tickets online or get cash from an ATM permit, properly classified, aggregated, processed and analyzed to characterize and predict our behavior, habits or communication needs and future owners and collectively.

These data, once processed, generates usable to improve processes, plan marketing campaigns, detecting fraudulent behavior or measuring the propensity to use or abandonment of a product information. However, this treatment is very complex due to the huge amount of data, in continuous variability, a huge variety of types and formats and an undetermined veracity of probabilistic nature. This requires sophisticated algorithmic methods.

The specialty of the IIC is the Algorithmic Engineering, ie the set of techniques and mathematical methods to analyze and unravel automatically hidden information behind the tangle of complex data by learning from them to adapt to market changes and consumer and turn it into profit for the company. It has to do with a multidisciplinary team of engineers, mathematicians, physicists, psychologists, linguists and specialists in marketing and business organization where 88% of professionals are licensed, Master students, doctors or professors.

Talent management and organization

 

Without well organized talent businesses can not function. The IIC has created talent management tools for the assessment and development of skills and generic skills, capabilities as well as the knowledge and use of English. These tools, developed with innovative methodologies enable an organization to meet your professional and dynamic development.

From the point of view of the social functioning of organizations, the IIC provides a consultancy service to discover all the underlying business process informal social network, posing measure differences regarding formal organizational structures (organizational) and take, from that knowledge, corrective actions identified problems. It is applied, for example, knowledge management, to determine the role of employees as generators or consumers of knowledge or influence on processes as facilitators or barriers to distribution. It is a fundamental approach to managing for useful knowledge for any organization or social, shared or not.

 

Social networking and business

The prevalence of social dominates todays business landscape. The relationship between companies and customers and all of them together takes place through social networks of great dynamism and tremendous impact while social media enhance the dissemination of news, information and views, and with them, the influence of individuals and global organizations. The IIC algorithms and solutions are useful also in this area that the data complexity is increased by the multiplicity of possible relationships between social entities.

So the most recent IIC solutions allow you to manage viral marketing campaigns, making processes or products by abandoning social influence, social and geo-CRM or social collaboration Platform Company and monitor conversations and analyze user reviews social media alerting on those with significant impact on the customers business. In a complex environment adequacy, power, precision, and adaptability of its algorithmic solutions make the difference between mere theoretical exercise and obtaining measurable value.
