  2. TechEmergence Podcast: Innovation at the Intersection of Technology and Psychology (automation)

    How does automation influence

    society today? This is an open-ended question with likely endless

    answers that can be observed in many different areas of society. As

    a Writer, Speaker, and Professor in Media Theory and Economics,

    Douglas Rushkoff has made it his livelihood to examine the impacts of

    automation in our evolving digital society. In this

    episode, we speak about his ‘disappointment’ in how automation

    has been used by many industries without regard for employees’

    long-term well being, and how a cultural shift in industry

    priorities may be what’s needed to make automation beneficial for

    the majority.

  3. Douglas Rushkoff – Live! From City Lights

  | Open Player in New Window

    Douglas Rushkoff appeared again at City Lights to speak about his new book Throwing Rocks at the Google Bus and to answer questions on all things pertaining to the effect of technology on culture.

    When protesters shattered the windows of a bus carrying Google employees to work, their anger may have been justifiable, but it was misdirected. The true conflict of our age isn’t between the unem­ployed and the digital elite, or even the 99 percent and the 1 percent. Rather, a tornado of technological improvements has spun our economic program out of control, and humanity as a whole—the pro-testers and the Google employees as well as the shareholders and the executives—are all trapped by the consequences. It’s time to optimize our economy for the human beings it’s supposed to be serving.

    In this groundbreaking book, acclaimed media scholar and author Douglas Rushkoff tells us how to combine the best of human nature with the best of modern technology. Tying together disparate threads—big data, the rise of robots and AI, the increasing participation of algorithms in stock market trading, the gig economy, the collapse of the eurozone—Rushkoff provides a critical vocabulary for our economic moment and a nuanced portrait of humans and commerce at a critical crossroads.

  4. How to get the most out of realizing you are wrong by using Bayes’ Theorem to update your beliefs / Boing Boing

    You don’t treat all of your beliefs equally.

    For some, you see them as either true or false, correct or incorrect. For others, you see them as probabilities, chances – odds. In one world, you live in certainty, in the other, uncertainty.

    In this episode we explore why you gladly update some beliefs yet refuse to update others.

    In this episode you will learn from two experts in reasoning how to apply a rule from the 1700s called Bayes’ Theorem not only to numbers you can plug into formulas, but also to the beliefs you carry around in order to make sense of the world.

    Julia Galef is the president and co-founder of the Center for Applied Rationality, a non-profit organization that training people and organization to make better decisions. She is also the host of the Rationally Speaking Podcast and has written for Slate, Science, Scientific American, and Popular Science.

    Neil A. Manson is a philosopher and professor who teaches at the University of Mississippi. He teaches logic, philosophy, religion, philosophy of science, and medical ethics. His research concerns the design argument, and he assembled an anthology on the topic titled: God and Design: The Teleological Argument and Modern Science.

    In the show, Manson explains the math side of Bayes’ Theorem, and Galef tells us how Bayes’ Theorem makes it possible to see all of your beliefs as being in “grayscale,” as neither black nor white, neither 0 nor 100 percent, but always somewhere in between, as a shade of gray reflecting your confidence in just how wrong you might be given the evidence at hand.

  5. Chris Voss: “Never Split the Difference” | Talks at Google

    Everything we’ve previously been taught about negotiation is wrong: people are not rational; there is no such thing as ‘fair’; compromise is the worst thing you can do; the real art of negotiation lies in mastering the intricacies of No, not Yes. These surprising tactics—which radically diverge from conventional negotiating strategy—weren’t cooked up in a classroom, but are the field-tested tools FBI agents used to talk criminals and hostage-takers around the world into (or out of) just about any scenario you can imagine.

    In NEVER SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE: Negotiating As If Your Life Depended On It, former FBI lead international kidnapping negotiator Chris Voss breaks down these strategies so that anyone can use them in the workplace, in business, or at home.

    This talk was moderated by Mairin Chesney.

  7. Second Unit #191 (Die Tribute von Panem – The Hunger Games) | Second Unit

    Für unseren Gast Miriam Seyffarth ist das Hunger Games Franchise das wichtigste und bedeutendste der letzten Jahre. Bester Anlass also, um auch hier endlich mal über die Film zu besprechen. Los geht’s mit Die Tribute von Panem – The Hunger Games (Amazon-Link*).

    Ihr findet Miriam übrigens auf Twitter unter _noujoum oder auf den Bühnen der re:publica. Auf der #rpTEN hielt sie einen Vortrag zu Fatwas im Internet und saß in einem Panel zum Thema “Terror ernst nehmen, Terroristen auslachen”.

    Gleich zu Beginn der Diskussion empfehlen wir weitere Podcasts zu dem Thema. Für Miriam ist das vor allem der Podcast Loading Ready Run, der eine Ausgabe zum ersten Film hat, eine Ausgabe zum japanischen Vorbild und in einer Ausgabe die letzten beiden Filme bespricht. Außerdem empfiehlt sie den kleinercast von kleinerdrei, bei dem sich Anne und Lucie nicht nur den Filmen, sondern auch den Büchern widmen.

    Meine Empfehlungen stammen alle aus dem Umfeld dieser Sendung, denn viele befreundete Podcasts haben sich in der Vergangenheit schon mit den Filmen beschäftigt. Das sind vor allem die CineCouch, der Lichtspielcast und Enough Talk! in ganzen zwei Ausgaben. Anscheinend springen wir hier ein wenig verspätet auf den Zug auf, aber besser spät als nie!

    [YouTube Direktlink]

    Regie führte Gary Ross, der gemeinsam mit Suzanne Collins, der Autorin der Romanvorlage, und Billy Ray das Drehbuch für den Film verfasste. Interessant dabei ist, dass Ross nur den ersten Film inszeniert, nicht aber das komplette Franchise. In der Hauptrolle spielt Jennifer Lawrence als Katniss Everdeen, die mit diesem Streifen ihren Superstar-Status erst richtig zementieren konnte. Außerdem dabei sind: Stanley Tucci als Caesar Flickerman, Wes Bentley als Seneca Crane, Willow Shields als Primrose Everdeen, Liam Hemsworth als Gale Hawthorne, Elizabeth Banks als Effie Trinket, Woody Harrelson als Haymitch Abernathy und Amandla Stenberg als Rue.

    Wir nähern uns dem Film zunächst über meine Probleme im Bezug auf das Worldbuilding und die (visuelle) Zahmheit des Filmes gegenüber seinem dystopischen Setting. Diese Kritik verblasst aber schnell vor der interessanten Verarbeitung pubertärer Motive wie das Erwachsenwerden, das Hineingeworfenwerden in eine Welt von Erwachsenen und die damit einhergehenden Regeln und Oberflächlichkeiten. Natürlich spielt das Spiel mit und in Medien auch eine große Rolle dabei. Zum Schluss landen wir über eine ausführliche Beschreibung der Protagonistin Katniss Aberdeen beim allgemeinen Thema der Young-Adult-Filmen und was diese Filme vielleicht mit dem zeitgenössischen Superhelden-Kino zu tun haben könnten.
