Leading Thoughts for February 13, 2020

IDEAS shared have the power to expand perspectives, change thinking, and move lives. Here are two ideas for the curious mind to engage with: I.Rachel Botsman discussing trust issues that revolve not just around trust and technology, but trust issues around size: “I think so much of what we need in our lives are smaller systems, where you can really serve people’s best interests. I am a huge supporter of local news, I’m a huge supporter of community practices, all these things are very important...

China has started ranking citizens with a creepy 'social credit' system — here's what you can do wrong, and the embarrassing, demeaning ways they can punish you

China plans to rank all its citizens based on their "social credit" by 2020. People can be rewarded or punished according to their scores. Like private financial credit scores, a person's social scores can move up and down according to their behavior. At the moment the system is piecemeal — some are run by city councils, while others are scored by private tech platforms that hold personal data. Scroll down to see how you can be punished or rewarded. The Chinese state is setting up a vast rank...

China has started ranking citizens with a creepy 'social credit' system — here's what you can do wrong, and the embarrassing, demeaning ways they can punish you

The Chinese state is setting up a vast ranking system system that will monitor the behaviour of its enormous population, and rank them all based on their "social credit." The "social credit system," first announced in 2014, aims to reinforce the idea that "keeping trust is glorious and breaking trust is disgraceful," according to a government document. The program is due to be fully operational by 2020, but is being piloted for millions of people already. The scheme is mandatory. At the moment ...

Who can You Trust?

  “What if trust, like energy, cannot be destroyed and instead just changes form?”[Rachel Botsman] Trust is on the decline, and we need to rebuild it. We keep hearing this repeated everywhere. From social networks to boardrooms, people say organizations and institutions should focus on trust. But, philosopher Onora O'Neill says we don't really understand what we're suggesting.     There's a claim many people believe about the great decline of trust. Therefore the aim is to have more, which m...

Neville Hobson SDF Podcast 15 – Reining in tech: responsibility, regulation and education Our Christmas episode was recorded under the auspices of Janus, the god of all things related to time.

SDF Podcast 13: 1984 meets Pavlov’s dogs

NevilleHobson.com SDF Podcast 13: 1984 meets Pavlov’s dogs “Trust, but verify” is a phrase that was used often by Ronald Reagan. It is more than a little ironic that this is originally a Russian proverb (Doveryai, no proveryai). Trust is also what links the various topics in episode 13 of our podcast (with show notes written by Thomas Stoeckle). From Chinese citizen scores to alleged irregularities in the UK referendum and the US presidential election, the implications of GDPR and the prospect...

How Transparency Makes the Trust Leap Possible

    Trust is a fundamental building block in relationships—a discount or premium depending on the level of trust we have. The delta between the two could be significant. It could make or break a deal, an opportunity, or a relationship. What can we do about trust?     We don't buy it, though some try, or reinforce it by telling people they should “just trust us.” Trust is one of those things we get as a result of doing something else better, and it's part of our better nature. In The Blank Sla...

We've stopped trusting institutions and started trusting strangers | Rachel Botsman

Something profound is changing our concept of trust, says Rachel Botsman. While we used to place our trust in institutions like governments and banks, today we increasingly rely on others, often strangers, on platforms like Airbnb and Uber and through technologies like the blockchain. This new era of trust could bring with it a more transparent, inclusive and accountable society -- if we get it right. Who do you trust? [Author: [email protected] (TED Conferences LLC)]

Taxi Industry's Protest Against Ridesharing Apps Backfires

San Francisco taxi drivers are done playing nice. For two hours on Monday night at San Francisco International Airport, cabbies with the San Francisco Taxi Workers Alliance clogged lanes, blocked terminals, refused to pick up passengers and posted signs in their windows reading, “This vehicle has full-time insurance, 'TNCs’ (transportation network companies) do not!” the San Francisco Chronicle reported. The protest came as tensions escalate between the taxi industry and smartphone app-enabled ...
