None of this potential will be possible however, if early adopters risk creating a negative perception of the devices through irresponsible and dangerous use. We need to instil a sense of responsibility, ownership, and safe usage without losing the fun element for those flying drones as a hobby.
Postman asks that we consider technology not in terms of efficiency or speed, but rather as how it alters our social conceptions of learning, for instance, and how education is being reformulated because of technology. Postman asks if these technologies change how we perceive reality and how ideas and institutions are altered by technology such that our adoption of technology is undertaken unconsciously and seamlessly:
The cybersecurity industry seems to be heading toward dire straits as data breaches grow in size and number every year, while in tandem, monitoring networks is becoming ever more challenging with internet traffic increasing at an accelerating pace.
It's Christmas morning December 25, 2016 at 6:17 am. You can't sleep because this year, for some reason, you seem to be more excited about what's under the tree than in years past. But you know the rest of the home is still sleeping so you reach for your phone.
In order to prevent online fraud, it is important for businesses to recognise where their infrastructure is most vulnerable, educate employees effectively and work with the right partners to keep up with an evolving cyber security landscape.
While traditional security measures such as firewalls, access logs, zoned areas and good security architecture all contribute to good cyber security practice, there may be another, often overlooked, danger lurking within your network: unlicensed software.
The word 'visionary' conjures up all sorts of images; not least a futurist with crystal ball-like abilities. But in today's tech landscape the demands on becoming a visionary have changed significantly, with three specific dynamics affecting the requirements of the job. Embracing or ignoring these will be the difference between success and failure.
As The buzzword of the moment, one has to ask oneself what is the true meaning of sustainability? In a nutshell, it is a systemic shift in culture towards the triple bottom line; that is, putting planet and people on a level playing field with profit when it comes to innovation.
The trouble for me is that, with identity, there's no margin for error. A password can be easily changed, but a face, fingerprint or voice isn't so easy. This technology needs to be completely secure and tested before it is rolled out as a primary or sole method of identification for banking.
The Apprentice gave me the platform I needed to raise investment to set up HRS, however it is not for everyone. Don't forget The Apprentice is a TV show. It may have worked for me but it is the lessons you develop day to day, and the person you are, that really makes the difference.
Of course, every leap of progress should be accompanied by a little caution, but sometimes it feels as though we're far too willing to miss out on incredible improvements to our lives because we do not want to leave our comfort zone.
Sexism in these areas needs to be addressed, and the Nobel Foundation has the power to improve this by treating women as equal players. But for now, the message to women is clear - the best man always wins.
Although the introduction of robots to the workforce may ultimately make many jobs redundant, more roles will be created that enable people to develop further professionally. The jobs that are most susceptible to automation are those that are predictable, repetitive and don't require a great deal of social intelligence.
With more high-profile figures hacked these days, there is a growing concern about such measures against other famous figures, and even ordinary people, who fail to abide by a simple rule: don't re-use your passwords.
Social media can be polarising; there are, of course, lots of positive updates but those are interspersed with regular updates about the ugliness within society too. And that can be tough on those of us who live with depression.
As the power and influence of sharing economy organisations grows we need to create a system that works for workers and wider citizens, that reflect the changes caused by so called sharing economy businesses. The RSA for example is using a 'collaborative and consultative approach' to develop thinking in this area.
We don't need to look too hard to uncover some of the motivation between these frequent m-shopping trips. Social media feeds are awash with inspirational images and every product imaginable. This means that every day, shoppers are flicking through catalogues-worth of products, styled and validated by their friends as well as an army of digital influencers that comprise their online network.
So what's the solution? How can we compete with the US? For me, it's simple enough: UK universities have to put IP education at the top of their enterprise agenda. One way to do this potentially, is to establish a network of IP advice/information centres at each university delivering a nationwide service with uniform standards across the UK.
