Radical Open Innovation News week 10-2020

Welcome to our biweekly selection of business IT innovation news. Created using our own opinionated selection and summary algorithm. We present some top innovation news items to get you thinking, debating and take action in order to make our world better.

1 Shifting Power Towards Creators

Better business models for the web. Grant for the Web will spark a healthier internet built on open standards, giving people more independence and control over how they distribute and monetize content, and generating better business models for the web.


2 Why Middle Management Slows Down Innovation

Innovative ideas and processes will stagnate without support from middle management. Let’s explore why that is, with an emphasis on larger companies, in this article.

3 The business of space

Private companies are increasingly active in the space sector – from high- profile businesses such as SpaceX or Virgin Galactic to the nearly 3,000 small businesses that provide elements for the European Space Agency’s space programme. We also look at the challenge of assembling, maintaining and repairing objects in space and the developments in space robotics that could help. We look at how to minimise the environmental impact of satellites and delve into efforts to build a reusable European launcher for small payloads.

4 Why Simplify IT?

Simple software is more easily understood and far less prone to breaking: there are less moving pieces, less lines of code , and fewer edge cases. Given enough time, you’ll find that all software which solves a real complex problems is going to: * have bugs and * have performance problems. Complex business IT solutions often break and have a short lifetime.


5 Automating Failure Mode Analysis For Automotive Safety

The design hierarchy worksheet makes adding and removing components from the safety analysis very easy — which is very useful for what- if analysis. In this article, we will step you through how our automated FMEDA creation process addresses the challenges of the FMEDA process. FMEDAs are essential in ensuring that your SoCs satisfy ISO 26262 functional safety analysis requirements for automotive designs and for demonstrating that your design is indeed safe. Safety goals are the design’s top most safety requirements, from which all hardware and software safety requirements are derived.

6 The Simplest of Models for Open Access to Research Proves Itself: Welcome to Subscribe-to-Open

I’ve got blog-worthy good news. So good, in fact, that I’m persuaded to take a break from my consecutive blogs on amending American copyright for open access (my developing case here). Instead, I devote this blog to a far more here-and- now breakthrough in increasing public access to research.

7 A new model of vision

This type of model, known as efficient inverse graphics (EIG), also correlates well with electrical recordings from face-selective regions in the brains of nonhuman primates, suggesting that the primate visual system may be organized in much the same way as the computer model, the researchers say. Their model thus learns to reverse the steps performed by a computer graphics program for generating faces. The new model posits that when the brain receives visual input, it quickly performs a series of computations that reverse the steps that a computer graphics program would use to generate a 2D representation of a face or other object.
