A short, but powerful, video presentation from Tim O'Reilly on the emerging platform and cognitive augmented economy.

"Don't just replicate the old with digital technology.

Search out the new possibilities of the future, seek out the new.

Cognitive augmentation is a key part of the future of our economy and we have to get good at it.

Throw away the narrative of using technology to automate people, getting rid of them. Instead, focus on how we can use technology to augment them.

How can your business become an augmented platform?"

On a more optimistic note, emerging digital technologies provide exciting opportunities for transforming education. This will require a fundamental change in education's traditional conservative approach to embracing technology.

"Dependence on government spending and old-world policies often meant that technology was perceived as a good-to-have capability to be considered after addressing more pressing problems of the education industry, rather than as strategic a tool to overcome many of the deficiencies or provide a competitive advantage. This perception is changing with even emerging economies leapfrogging into the digital age through massive deployment of low-cost laptops and tablets, and expansion of broadband technologies. The availability of cloud-based platforms for disseminating content and delivering pedagogy at scale - as evidenced, for example, in the rise of the MOOCs - means that we can expect significant progress to be made in the coming years in lowering costs and increasing access to quality education."
