Smart Space is Coming… and coming fast!

Smart Space Will Auto-Generate Human Synchronistic Events

Shopping aisles will suggest a cheese with that wine and even a possible date in aisle #3 who buys the same olive oil, pasta and ice cream we buy. Of course that person in aisle #3 may also now know who and where you are. The reactions to such data by both parties might be very entertaining to watch from the video monitors above.

This technology is here already. Have you seen the “Sonar” iPhone app? http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sonar-mobile-profile-for-local/id422549956?mt=8

Parking Spaces will know we have arrived – http://www.libelium.com/smart_parking  Can there be any doubt where that is heading?

For starters our smart airport parking space might speak to us.  When it does it might say:

“Hello Mr. Hennessy. Your departing flight is currently on-time. Current security line wait time in International Terminal 3 is 45 minutes.”

Of course we will be able to ask “Smart-Spaces” questions, such as…
Q: “When will the parking shuttle arrive?
A: “5 minutes Mr. Hennessy. ”

Smart Parking Sensors _ @libelium

And “smart spaces” will obviously promote and sell to me. They will even appear empathetic, predicting our needs! 

Airport hallway “Smart-Walls” will speak to us. To me these interconnected and contiguous “sensing” panels might suggest…

“You have time for a beverage Mr. Hennessy. Would you care for your Guinness at the bar coming up up on your left in 100 yards? I can order it for you now if you’d like.”

Did I mention that the audio tech exists that can pin-point the projection of sound, i.e. to you and only you as you walk down a hallway :-)? Perfect huh.

Kiosks everywhere will know us… the level of intimacy we will most likely control, but they’ll still know something about us if we are carrying a Smartphone and our devices are switched on.

Outdoor Advertising is already digital and real time... and becoming smarter everyday @ClearChannelOutdoor

And we have all noticed the appearance of DON (Ex: Clear Channel Outdoor’s – Digital Outdoor Network) where we see outdoor space displays or “faces” such as highway bulletin boards, walkway panels, airports, street “furniture” such as transit enclosures – all migrating to real-time digital and I have NO DOUBT will become individually, or group, personal-data interactive: http://www.clearchanneloutdoor.com/products/digital/don/#creative 

Now, speaking of big outdoor digital displays getting smarter and interactive, check out how people on the street are playing a game (in public) using their smartphones.
 
Their game-playing moments of fame are displayed on a huge digital billboard above a McDonalds. The game is called Pick & Play and if you last 30+ seconds you win a McD’s sponsored prize:
 

Social Game-Playing On The Big Outdoor Digital Screen. This smart-space knows who & where you are!

This is real-time interaction with a physical surface w/geo-location features all tied directly to your “person” via your smart phone…

(Think about it. I do. All the time. And it’s a love/hate thing for me.)

… and you can win an ice cream cone!

Incredible mass consumer social-psychological appeal, and great promotional platform and channel.

In our coming retail shopping experience Smart-Spaces will “know” us coming and going, and in the in-between.

So, you might ask your “Self”, where’s the risk?

 
I say, the risk exists in our habituation to the experience of this clever intrusion into, and dilution of, our privacy over time. From my window, our increasingly pervasive social-sharing produces a commensurate loss of privacy which then begets a certain thinning or speading of one’s very Personhood… a “diffusion of identity.”
 
From and Ecology-of-Mind perspective, we simply need to become smarter about our Self; to know more clearly who and what and why we are.
 
A more coherent “Self” can stand independent of context, as a significant and self-aware human being. Then we can enjoy the technology and support development directions that make sense to us while also fighting those applications that are not healthy.
 
Then the smart (and even learning-) spaces will serve our personal and social growth and development vs. only others.

The Emergent Singularity and Quantified-Self Movements are the Perfect Fulcrums for EcoMind, The Evolution-Revolution and the Associated Universe of Coming Evolutionary Technologies

We’ve been moving towards this Singularity “idea” and evolving reality for some time, and to date, this is by far the most optimal platform to launch an Ecology-of-Mind & EvoTech Industry

http://www.kurzweilai.net/singularity-university-goes-international-with-executive-program-in-brazil?utm_source=KurzweilAI+Daily+Newsletter&utm_campaign=7b0fd8977d-UA-946742-1&utm_medium=email

The link provided, and topics from this link listed below, concern this Singularity movement, which now lends itself to and even points towards the stepping stone for the emergence of a more common understanding, and belief in, an Ecology-of-Mind awareness.

In short, the Singularity marketplace and naturally migrating dialogue is by far the most evolved and credible business platform so far for the EcoMind/EcoTech message to dovetail from.

EcoMind concerns the “motiv” or motivation and the underlying reason for the disciplines, unifying correlates and patterns, and predicted convergences presented within the Singularity movement….

As expressed throughout this EcoMind blog, I see this motivation founded on the innate and fundamental need(s) of the uniquely expressive human mind/brain/BEing, and in the aggregate… moved by an implicate human ecosystem.  This motivation is now just becoming obvious and more tangible as a marketplace in and of itself.

Simply put, the human mind thrives and therein needs to mine, discover, assess and experience optimal Human Synergies.

LeToonz, LeCozmos, LeModel, etc. (https://imonad.wordpress.com/2009/09/25/future-connecting-our-younique-ah-has-and-path-of-ah-has/are all facets of EcoMind (or OneMind as I have called it previously – 1999-2004ish) and they exist to provide this critical missing link.

http://ejmmm2007.blogspot.com/2009_06_01_archive.html)

Online data aggregation and analysis can provide a solid starting point in the representation of our Evolving Self(s)

That missing link is a form of SELF consciousness or a fuller and deeper and to-be-more-common literacy of Self-Knowing.  Higher, fuller Hu-Synergies are now occurring local2global on a scale never seen before, yet still, only within a niche of the global humanity.

This idea/reality of fuller and truer and therein more intentionally active SELF-Consciousness (based on individual and YOUnique innate gifts, dispositions-as-resonance’s) needs a  business-acceptable platform for the common BEing and this platform is a form of common literacy, much like the now very common 4R’s that will somehow evolve into a becoming  common 4r’s + C in 2-3 genrations time and among common folk vs. TheNiche population.

Here’s another instantiation of the ready-to-emerge EcoMind/EvoTech prediction as supported by an underlying movement that has gained tangible momentum globally and within less than 24 months.

The "Quanitified-Self" has Emerged

The “Quantified-Self” wavefront speaks directly to “self metrics” and representations of the human unique self and will also begin to build natural correlations among our Self’s based on these course grain bio and physio-logical data points as they are (dominantly physiologial and genetic at the moment (www.23andme.com) but not psycho-physio resonances at the moment) …
QS is also motivated by our innately born and focused yet still nascent and niche consumer yearning to know and understand more fully the who, what, why and how of our YOUnique Self and Eco-system-of-Self’s: http://www.quantifiedself.com/ … a more fundmental super-singularity is found in this force of nature I term OneMind, as an Ecology-of-Mind movement, that is driven without effort, but by our most innate and pure nature, to optimize Human and Hu-systems synergies for as long as we survive gloriously.
