    Engaging with potential customers, right from the beginning, and learning what they want is an essential skill.

Even if you eventually end up filming a professional spot, you will be much further ahead, having learned what connects with customers along the way.

    [Learning] Artificial Intelligence or Intelligence Augmentation
    I personally was a wee bit enamored of genetic algorithms, another form of machine learning (but a bit easier to extract semantics, or maybe just simpler for me to understand ;). And it may mean simulating our cognitive architecture on a sensor equipped processor that must learn through experimentation and feedback as we do. e.g. taking a few years just to learn to speak! It’s not really intelligent, even if it’s doing it like we do (the pattern learning).

    [Learning] 7 essential facets for enterprise knowledge sharing
    Attention must also be paid to any systemic barriers to knowledge sharing and social learning. Most large organizations today have some suite of social tools to share information and knowledge. But how do they know if they have the optimum tools for their context? Too often the tools are selected and then the workers are left to figure out how to use them. Based on work with several clients over the past few years, I have identified seven essential facets for enterprise social networks.

    Group activities like this can connect self-directed learning and enterprise curation, as shown in the figure above. Recording and sharing our knowledge (working out loud) helps groups learn as they work. It then becomes essential to develop ways to capture and share what has been learned with each test. Finding ways to collect and share both types of knowledge is important for organizational learning.

In yesterday’s post, I talked about how new tools need to be coupled with practices to facilitate exploration.
