Very interesting posting:

But over the past 10 years, as consumers of social media, we’ve become trained to receive and engage with information in the form of a feed. It’s now natural to us. …

Social feeds are now intelligent, can figure out what you like – and what you dislike – and sort the information accordingly. …

While all these systems present information differently, work software should follow social media’s model to improve engagement by intelligently curating information from each system into a central feed where content, more or less, all looks the same.

From there, employees have access to the updates most important to them and can complete tasks assigned to them without clicking through to other systems — avoiding wasted time and dampened engagement. …

Are we really ready to work in the feed or the activity stream? Or are we still in our email inbox? A simple central feed is only the one side of the coin. But as long as we do not make the feed consumable, meaningful, valuable, this is not going to succeed. Not at the workplace. This is why we need help in prioritizing and consolidating our incoming communication and information channels. After years of stagnation – or minimum progress – while the flood of information becomes even more unmanageable – at least by the human brain – we need artificial intelligence augmenting our human intelligence. We need tools like IBM Watson at and for work. Now.
