中新网上海新闻7月12日电 Blockchain Centre Shanghai 12日联手企业管理层、技术领域的专家以及智慧创新技术团队汇聚在沪西愚园路的梦想课堂,探讨V.U.C.A时代的数字科技力量。

V.U.C.A。世界中每个元素都代表着对新时代的预见性和洞察力,时刻提醒着组织和个人要提高在企业中的行动力。人力资源管理与数字经济落地应用如何完美结合以及顶尖科技与企业管理会碰撞出怎样的火花都是现阶段企业在探索行动力提升这一命题中最应该思考的问题。

来自 HR 私董会的企业管理者与现场观众面对面探讨了新时代下的 HR理念以及如何进行更加智慧化的人才管理,阐述了科技对于人才潜能激发的重要性。

世界顶尖机器人交互专家-Adrian David Cheok阁下为观众讲解了他所熟悉的技术领域——混合现实、多感官互联网交流。人类可以使用所有感官开发新型通信环境,包括触觉、味觉和嗅觉,听起来或许不可思议,但却是在当前科技水平层面可以展望的。

BastionPay 团队则带来了其率先针对员工激励这一应用场景推出的BastionPay Plus员工区块链激励解决方案。这一方案旨在将员工的行为价值化,把每个员工的日常行为记录下来,将数据上链,并根据员工按时出勤、工作成绩、达到一定工龄等标准来发放内部凭证,满足年轻一代员工在工作中获得的价值感以及公司归属感。数字化管理推动员工激励的新机制,最终能够实现员工和企业的长期双赢。(完)

The GOVERNOR GENERAL OF AUSTRALIA, Representative of Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II, has awarded AUSTRALIA’S highest honor the ORDER OF AUSTRALIA to Adrian David Cheok. It was announced by Queen Elizabeth on June 10th during the Queen’s Birthday Celebrations. Adrian David Cheok is awarded the prize for his contribution to international education and research. A brief bio of Adrian David Cheok follows:

Adrian David Cheok is Director of the Imagineering Institute, Malaysia, Full Professor at i-University Tokyo, Visiting Professor at Raffles University, Malaysia, Visiting Professor at University of Novi Sad-Serbia, on Technical faculty “Mihailo Pupin”, Serbia, Faculty of Ducere Business School, and CEO of Nikola Tesla Technologies Corporation.

He is Founder and Director of the Mixed Reality Lab, Singapore. He was formerly Professor of Pervasive Computing, University of London, Full Professor at Keio University, Graduate School of Media Design and Associate Professor in the National University of Singapore. He has previously worked in real-time systems, soft computing, and embedded computing in Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs, Japan

‘Digital smell’ technology could mean you can send smells via online chats, scientists claim | Daily Mail Online

Fruity, woody, or minty! ‘Digital smells’ sent via electrodes placed inside your nose could let you transmit ODOURS in messaging and dating apps

  • Researchers claim to have created fruity, woody and minty ‘electric smells’
  • They did this by putting electrodes inside participants’ nostrils 
  • This stimulated electrical currents behind the nostril where neurons were found
  • However, critics say that smells might not have been created by electricity 

 

‘It is part of a whole, integrated virtual reality or augmented reality’, lead researcher Adrian Cheok who is the director of the Imagineering Institute in Malaysia told NBC.

‘So, for example, you could have a virtual dinner with your friend through the internet. You can see them in 3D and also share a glass of wine together’, he said.

Researchers created ten different odours for the 31 participants involved in the research.

Dr Cheok believes that one day odours will be sent in digital form over the internet – although he says that it might still be decades away.

The recipient could receive them by wearing glasses or goggles with electrodes in them.

‘The next stage is to produce it in a more controlled manner, and this will allow for people to develop software and products to generate electric smell’, Dr Cheok says.

He believes it could also restore smell to people who have lost it due to illness or an accident.

However, critics say that smells might not have been created by electricity.

Joel Mainland, a neuroscientist at the Monell Chemical Senses Centre told NBC that although it could be possible to create odours using electrical stimulation that might not have happened in this study.

‘If you are asking someone if something smells, they have a strong bias to say yes even where there is no odor’, he said.

Earlier this week, scientists said that zapping the brain by placing electrodes inside the nostrils could bring back someone’s lost sense of smell.

Being able to regain smell would be a breakthrough for millions, as figures estimate up to five per cent of people are unable to process scents.

Doctors at Massachusetts Eye and Ear tested the method on five patients who could already smell. It is the first time the sense has been stimulated this way.

The scientists believe the results open the door for a cochlear implant for the nose.

By placing electrodes in the nose, the nerves in the olfactory bulb were stimulated, and information was sent to the deeper regions of the brain.

Some cases of loss of smell can be treated by caring for an underlying cause, such as blocked sinuses or swelling, where the nasal passage is obstructed and smells can’t reach the brain.

In more complicated cases, the sensory nose may be damaged due to head injury, a virus or ageing, which can lead to anosmia – complete loss of smell.

There are currently no proven therapies for this, but the study proves there are options on the horizon.
