What we perceive, he says, is the brain’s “best guess”, based on its accumulated modelling of the world, about what the electromagnetic signals coming to it from the senses actually “mean” in reality. What we “experience” as the world is merely our mental model of it.

Improving Things for Knowledge and Information Workers

Microsoft Whiteboard

Michael Sampson - Currents

Excel’s white background is for numbers and calculations and data modelling and charts. While a white background is a common starting experience in Microsoft’s applications, the specific capabilities of each tool both create and constrain what you can use it for.

Skills for ‘Being’ in a Digital Age

Jenny Connected

During the interview he says that technology can ‘out know’ us, artificial intelligence is taking over human roles, and that in the future technology will become a co-agent rather than an enabler; you, me, colleagues, algorithms and robots will all work together in a techno-socio distributed learning model. I have been puzzling over George Siemens ’ idea that learners need to develop ‘being skills’ if they are to cope with what it means to be human in a digital age.

How to Save the World

The experiment with their service delivery model of “representative democracy” has been an abject failure.
