    ...
    The transition to computational ubiquity will be nearly complete. This will force us to rethink certain commonalities in our lives. The old model of work, where employees are hired by a company and kept on salary for many years will start to become obsolete. Through new levels of connectedness, those in need of work will be able to find workers in real time. The identity of those providing work can be verified to a previously unreachable level of depth due to the digital breadcrumbs we all leave.

    ...
    thinking will becomebe more and more importantnecessary as it leadswould lead to innovative determinations.
    How would working be different after 10 years?
    computers would be better than any other experts
    But there is limitation of data: i.e there is only one 911, how can we predict
    Should we prepare for the unexpected? We are good at preparing for the past thing but not good at preparing for the next thing
    Intelligence, how will it be in 10 years ago vs now?
    Now,
    determinations that computer systems support our imagination and creativity comparedcannot make according to 10 years ago
    Paul.O : linear thinking vs non linear thinking; computers cannot think in non linear ways. Imagination brings out solutions that do
    simply calculating data.
    30 Years Ago
    Internet was
    not follow the steps,available for normal people and the human brain is very good at it. It can fill in information that is not available into the picture. However, computers cannot do that in an extent that we need. For example, in emergency situations (A robot policeman in a Fox show does not make sense).
    The human Brain can make correct determinations without necessary data calculated but computer cannot.
    What is creativity?
    intuition
    there was no distribution of making correct decisions in emergency situations
    thinking out of the box, not based on historical situation, which is innovation.
    Paul.O: imagine something that does
    digital devices. Technology did not have a passage that leads to it (for example, when Sony created the walkman, no market existed before. Sony created the market for the product)
    How people buy things 10 years ago vs now?
    10 years ago : people go to the store and if they like it, they buy it. They listened to the salesperson.
    Nowadays: they research
    as much as impact on the internet and look for better choices. Decision is more integrated.
    From the retailer/ (producer)’s perspective, how did the system change 10 years ago vs now?
    traditional store : change price X experiment X
    online : raw data, hard
    society, as computers were first made to simply make sense out of it unlike traditional stores
    However, we can take many actions htmldiff1compared to in the past.
    Paul.O : Ex. 3D printer : in the future, maybe we will not buy the item but rather the design
    htmldiff4Hand-made products can become more valuable in the future.
    There can be supply changes. Would they be still valuable when the whole purchasing system is changing? Ex. Target can be changed into a factory
    difficult calculations instead of printer.human.
    30 Years From Now
    30 years from now, there will be not only technological growth, but also change of people's way of thinking, which can bring the whole systematical change of the framework of the society. 3D printer, which prints out the product that people have designed, can be one example. When 3D printer is distributed, the stores would change into a factory of printers and people will not buy products but designs. This invention will shift the whole marketing system and purchasing process. As this example shows, new possibilities will be keep suggested, which would change the original paradigm of the society.
    30 years ago there was no email, no digital cameras or networks
    Paul.O: 30 years ago, there was less capacity to measure stores or analyze data, since computer was first invented to make difficult calculations.
    The way we think about information and education changed.
    Answer questions → questioning answers → questioning questions
    How did intelligence change?
    According to the connectivity and communication, the ability to share, measure, and collect data improved, resulting in the whole variety.
    Now, people can quickly find the right information.

    From the students’ perspective, what did Prof. Weigend and the guest speaker miss in the lecture?
    The lecture could have focused more on the impact on the society. When being on the side of society, we can think about if the society is making changes in a right way and if people are really wanting this technological growth. If we are changing emotionally and our way of thinking is shifting, how can we measure those changes in order to check if this rapid change within 30 years have been ultimately a positive change.
    How social, human interaction changed 30 years ago versus now
    Computing in developing countries. The shift is not based on computing data but based on technology distribution
    Better equalized utilization of the internet
    Role of secrets in the future in this connected world
    Impact on society, Where are we now? Are we sick of this amount of information?
    What do people actually want? Do we really want all this technology?
    Consumers’ change of attitude in receiving data.
    If people are changing according to technical changes, how do we measure and express that emotional change? And know if it is changing in a right way?
    How technological evolution changes economy?

    Is Decision-Support Possible with Low Trust?
    How can we make rational decisions about our data use and generation when we are lied to by companies and governments about what happens to the data? Data is shared between anti-terrorist and other agencies. Economics get jumbled.

    6. HOW DO WE MEASURE AND ANALYZE RISK?
    ...
    In the first class, we made a similar graph with quadrants: Unexpected things vs expected things as one dimension, and good vs. bad things as the other dimension. This is 5x5 (quintiles) instead of 2x2 (binaries).

    Security, Authenticity, and Integrity
    Security, authentication, and integrity of these sensors/devices will be critical. GE ovens connect to internet. Hackers could have them self-clean and bring down grid. So security and authorizations are needed. Security, authentication, and integrity of sensors and chips will be needed. A new group at Intel has been formed for this. Hardware chip-level security is critical- a burned chip that can’t be spoofed.
