Top firms are utilizing gamification, the use of game playing, thinking and mechanics to engage users and assess capabilities, to improve business results. How will this technology be used for HR and talent acquisition?
Have you heard about the “internet of things”? Essentially more and more objects are being created embedded with sensors and an ability to communicate that data leading to potentially limitless applications. In February of this year, Google spent 3.2 Billion dollars to purchase Nest Labs, creators of the Nest Learning Thermostat. Darrell Etherington in a recent article for Tech Crunch, acknowledges “Google has stated in plain English that it does see a future where it could be serving ads on thermostats, as well as on “refrigerators, car dashboards, [...] glasses, and watches,” which is only a partial list of the places it imagines its advertising content might appear in the future.” Darrell goes on to say, “Eventually, Google basically notes, its services and ads might span just about every kind of hardware with a display and Internet connection. That’s probably a pretty fair appraisal of where things are headed with the future of smart homes and devices.”
The Greek philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus said, “δὶς ἐς τὸν αὐτὸν ποταμὸν οὐκ ἂν ἐμβαίης.” Or roughly translated into English – “You cannot step into the same river twice.” He believed that everything in the world was in flux and constantly changing.
Today, technology and social networks are two areas where we see continual change, adaptation, and evolution. We move in a philosophical sense from thesis – an idea, to antithesis – the opposite of that idea, and on to synthesis – reconciling thesis and antithesis forming a brand new thesis. New ideas beget new ideas. Oyster is the Netflix for books; Handybook is the Uber for household chores, etc.
