The difference between smart and intelligent

BY TOBIAS BERNETH
@ VOL 55 ON FEB 09, 2016

Tobias Berneth, Founder of Things to Be, discusses the question "Why can't smart technology be smarter?" he challanges this question by comparing technology. What is the difference between smart and intelligent products? We have smart products – products that can store, and deliver information. The intelligent product would be able to recognize redundancies and patterns of information.

Smart products await your input. Do you loose time by using smart products? By using intelligent products, would you be given time, as the product is constantly changing after your needs?

Berneth compares these intelligent products to making new friends. He asks, "How do you design something that collects your data?”. It’s like making friends, make products that people can communicate with in a human way and that can understand how you do it.

How to Launch a Rocket from Your Smart Phone

BY SPENCER SMITH
@ VOL 16 ON FEB 18, 2016

“They had state of the art technology… [but] an inability to communicate is what jeopardised their mission.”

In “How to Launch a Rocket From Your Smartphone” from PechaKucha Night Madison (Wisconson)’s 16th volume, speaker Spencer Smith debates an urban myth many know well. You may have heard that the smartphone you own is more powerful than the computers that put men on the moon. Do you think that's really true? Is raw computer power the most important component of this question? Once you hear the data from speaker, you could have a different opinion.

It is an exciting time to ask these questions as blockchain is a technology that has the potential to change every technological interaction we have. Can you trust a vague and anonymous interaction with a 3rd party you’ve never met before? Listen as Roop Singh describes the dyamics of blockchain and where we are now in its evolutionary path.
