MA Thesis Emotional Disorders Dinis Guarda

Emotional (Dis)(Orders
Memory, Affect, Play & Web Arcades
LONDON SOUTH BANK UNIVERSITY

Student: Dinis Guarda
Emotional (Dis)(Orders Memory, Affect, Play & Web Arcades My purpose in this final thesis is to reflect upon the parallels between the World Wide Web and The Arcades Project where Benjamin managed his efforts to represent and to critique the bourgeois experience of nineteenth-century history, and, in so doing, to liberate the suppressed "true history" perception that underlay the ideological mask of time and creation of meaning. The whole WWW (World Wide Web) - in the bustling, cluttered, technological, search engine- and user-generated digital arcades, streets and interior merging - is a fascinating parallel to Benjamin’s Arcades and also a powerful equivalent process to the present production and creation of thinking, ideas and art.

Digital Literacy Abc
Dinis Guarda
September 26, 2023
Digital Literacy is one of the most important things for each of us individually, our society in a time when physical and digital are merging and our own organic nature and our digital twins coexist. This is even more relevant as the hegemony of AI and Fourth Industrial Revolution 4IR take over our social economic behavior and redesign our existence.

What is the definition of digital literacy according to Unesco?

“Digital literacy involves the confident and critical use of a full range of digital technologies for information, communication and basic problem-solving in all aspects of life.”

Digital literacy is the present civilisation individual’s critical ability to find, evaluate, and communicate information by utilising multiple and increasingly hybrid interactions with technology tools and platforms and include typing, managing digital media, apps, hardware, software, social media, sensors, spatial computing, and hybrid AR, VR, MR platforms.

The concept and important of digital literacy is increasingly more powerful as our humans capabilities that redefine our ID identity and how we and our organisations can move with living, learning, working, participating and thriving in a global defined by tech society.

We are increasingly dependent of how we cope with digital transformation and how this shifts the society we all live. The digital transformation wide concept is an area fundamental to dive in to understand how we can look at self development, safe, effective, and person-centred 21st century wellbeing and social economic care.

When we speak about Digital Literacy and digital transformation we need to look at the following:

1. Digital ID, Life, wellbeing and career skills
2.Digital footprint data ownership and management
3.Information, media, data, technology, knowledge
4.Digital transformation 360 — socio-economic and working skills
5.Learning and innovation skills
6.Digital responsibility, ethics and behaviour

The Examples of Digital Literacy implicate that all we do in our lives increasingly impact the full scope of us as humans, the way we interact with each Other, the way we interact with machines and is now asking us to:

1. Manage a computer, tablet and smartphone and navigate applications.
2. Find and open files in a variety of applications.
3. Successfully perform online searches and research while being able to vet sources.
4. Know how to master personal digital ID, reputation, cybersecurity and services.
5. Know how to manage social media and digital online 360 public relations and how it impacts personal lives and the bridge between the personal, professional and related communities.
6. Know the SWOT strengths, weights, opportunities, threats that come from digital life style literacy.

Digital Transformation is more critical than ever in a time of #AI and #4IR.
Dinis Guarda
September 25, 2023
As digital and physical blur the integration of digital technologies together with #spatialcomputing #metaverse (special metaverse enterprise) #AR new innovations software and hardware into all aspects of business and society operations, digital transformation is more important than ever.

That means identifying how to use these 4IR digital #technologies to deliver new ways of behaviours, products and services, is more important than ever and the critical element is how to improve existing products and services, and to streamline processes.

This requires increasingly critical elements that are changing as we speak:
1. Process Transformation. Business process transformation is a strategic initiative aimed at improving the efficiency and effectiveness of a company's operations.

2. Business Model Transformation. How we integrate digital transformation in our business models.

3. Domain Transformation. How we integrate domain expertise in our digital road map and sector areas.

4. Cultural/Organisational Digital Transformation. Probably the most complex and important area for all of us and the most difficult as with disruptive innovation and #AI fast growing scale hegemony in particular are taking over the way we behave, work and communicate and collaborate.

AI is now omnipresent and playing a crucial role in the impact od digital transformation that allows data driven algorythms, tools, generative language models, chatbots, machines to detect, understand, act and learn either on their own or to augment our human activities. Important to understand that Culture transformation, product and Customer experience are the root of digital transformation and AI is changing the entire scenario of our businesses experiences.

The Convergence of Blockchain and AI
Dinis Guarda
August 16, 2023
My thoughts research infographics:

1. Blockchain and AI require big data open and share: While blockchain relies on open data APIs, special integration and sharing, AI applications can benefit from big data in multiple ways to share as well, with the idea that the more the data, the better the algorithm will be

2. Blockchain and AI require advanced ethics and security: Both technologies introduce new advanced infrastructure for security, transparency, ownership, data, and intelligence. Decentralised ledgers and smart contracts in blockchain and automated analysis, predict elements and decision-making in AI

3. Blockchain and AI require trust, ethics and governance: Blockchain and AI systems must be regulated, compliant, auditable, adhere to high levels of compliance and regulation policymaking, and uphold the highest humanitarian levels of values and transparency and secure identity and 360 level of access

Digital Transformation Why Businesses Governments Must Change With Smart Cities, 4IR, AI, Blockchain
Dinis Guarda
June 01, 2023
There is no alternative to digital transformation. The challenge and opportunity is: how to do it?

As per George Westerman, MIT Sloan Initiative on the Digital Economy: “When digital transformation is done right, it’s like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, but when done wrong, all you have is a really fast caterpillar.” Governments and businesses have to urgently carve out new digital transformation strategic options for themselves. There is no doubt those that who don’t change or adapt, will fail.

But the challenge is bigger and bigger as we get into the 4IR - 4th Industrial Revolution. At least 40% of all businesses will die in the next 10 years if they don’t figure out how to change, adapt their entire strategies - companies to accommodate, use new technologies in their day to day lives. Our era of disruptive technologies is changing, and is about learning - relearning, even if what businesses knew previously brought them success.

TheFourth Industrial Revolution is more than just about digital transformation 360 or technology. 4IR is about being able to continually change, learn, relearn, partner & keep transforming. It is about to keep moving!

Circular Economy, the Access Economy Or a New Blockchain driven Sharing Economy?
Medium
March 09, 2023
The Circular Economy, the Access Economy is a fairly recently emerged concept that is considered by many to be a more appropriate expression to describe what has become known as the larger concept of “Sharing Economy”. Some have suggested that the sharing economy is not so much about sharing as some corporations that rose from the concept became increasingly centralised. After all, those that offer rooms, sustainable energy, or car drives do so for money rather than sharing out of the goodness of their hearts. Another trend highlights the concept of social impact, the way to create a sustainable economy, better ways to reward work, and how the new technology blockchain is disrupting and offering solutions to correctly reward the healthy peer to peer P2P basis foundation of the circular economy / sharing economy.

Decomposing the Metaverse Digital Twins NFTs Infrastructure and architecture
Medium
March 07, 2023
Meta + Verse
Metaverse is composed of two words: Meta + Verse.

To better understand the complex topic of the metaverse, it is worth looking at the etymological origin of the ancient Greek word “meta”. Its original meaning is “beyond,” transcending, “after,” or “behind”.

Metaphysics, Metacognition are some words that use the prefix “Meta”. Metacognition, for example, means to have an awareness and understanding of one’s own thought processes. The “transcending” sense of meta has a powerful and even poetic sense in our society and our human tribal operating systems. The metaverse is then a digital counterpart to the physical world in which we live.

“4IR : AI, Blockchain, Fintech – Reinventing a Nation” offers insights into the present and future of the 4IR and how the associated variety of evolving technologies can and will have a significant impact on economies and societies. The book challenges nations to prepare for 4IR, asking them to focus on the needs of their society, leading to a future of sustainable, mindful economic growth on a global field, and how this, if rightly utilized, might contribute to a better world where nations are seen as collaborators rather than adversaries.

The book assembles an array of thought leaders who all contributed research to the book and is a testament to the impressive global network that Dinis Guarda has built during his 25-year career. The list of contributors includes a foreword by Eric Van der Kleij – the founder of London TechCity and Level 39, Emmanuel Daniel, founder of Asian Banker, Guenther Dobrauz Saldapenna, author and Director at PWC, Yoshiyuki Yamamoto, advisor to the UN, Efi Pylarinou, influencer in fintech, Thomas Power, global authority in social media and tech, Maria Fonseca, Anca Petre, Dr. Margarita Peredaryenko, Hernaldo Turrillo and Javed Khattak.

With deep insights into complex interpersonal workplace dynamics, this book positions leadership as both a skill to be learned and as a relationship that needs nurturing to reach its full potential.

This new edition is revised to address timely workplace challenges, helping you stay current, relevant, and effective in the modern workplace.

During the review, Dinis quoted from the book:

"Everybody is a leader, starting with yourself. You need to be a CEO of yourself first, and then others. Leadership is a relationship. It is important how we put it together, but credibility is the foundation. This is when business leaders are at their best."

Dinis also quoted Tom Peters, a bestselling business author, and speaker, who praised "The Leadership Challenge":

"Did we really need a seventh edition of the leadership challenge? Yes! The seminal book series is more important than ever, far more important. The world is a mess and the best way I see is how we better our organisations and the lives of their employees."

August 21, 2023
Author and entrepreneur Dinis Guarda reviews 'Sneakers: Over 300 Classics From Rare Vintage To The Latest Kicks', a book by Neal Heard, in the latest episode of Booksabc. The book highlights 300 vintage and rare collections from different brands, exploring the stories behind them and presenting some shoe care and maintenance facts. Booksabc is a series powered by openbusinesscouncil.org and citiesabc.com.

About Sneakers: Over 300 Classics From Rare Vintage to the Latest Kicks

With a prior background in the footwear and fashion industry, Neal presents a rich tapestry of history, style, and cultural relevance, underscoring the enduring impact of sneakers on the modern world. Heard's book delves beyond the surface appeal of sneakers, offering readers insights into the stories behind each of the iconic pairs.

In particular, the book highlights the different tribes of sneakers, Hall of Fame (of sneakers), the big and other players, fashion fusion, back to the future, low 5 versus high five, and collecting sneakers. Dinis also highlighted that the book talks about classics like the Tom Smith collection by Adidas to more advanced ones like Converse, Asics, Onitsuka, Tiger, and Puma, to name a few.

"I'm sure everyone, especially if you are more dynamic, would like to explore the book. It is fantastic. It's a book to watch (the pictures) as much as to read. It's a great oxygen for you to understand our pop culture and fashion lifestyle culture and business", he concluded.

With fashion being a reflection of societal trends, the sneaker's evolution mirrors changing tastes, preferences, and even values. The inclusion of vintage classics alongside the latest designs paints a vivid picture of how sneakers have become a canvas for creativity, innovation, and cultural expression.

The Video Game Industry: Insights for Investors
Dinis Guarda
September 26, 2023
There were 3.2 billion gamers across the world in 2022, and that number continues to grow. The COVID-19 pandemic supercharged the gaming industry, with 82% of global consumers playing video games or watching video game content during the height of lockdowns. Although this acceleration has slowed since the pandemic, with a slight decline in global gaming revenue reported in 2022 (down to $184.4 billion from a peak of $192.7 billion in 2021), more people played games in 2022 than ever before, and a return to growth is expected following the pull-ahead caused by the COVID-19 lockdown period.

Which of the world's Top 50 news sites have blocked AI crawlers from accessing their content?

Notes; data last updated on August 29

According to data presented by http://AltIndex.com, nearly one-third of the world's top 50 news sites have blocked AI crawlers from accessing their content, and their number continues rising.

CNN, New York Times, Daily Mail, Reuters, and Bloomberg Have All Blocked At least One AI Crawler
AI companies send crawlers to collect data to train their models and provide information for chatbots.

The entire situation escalated last month after OpenAI had launched its GPTBot crawler to collect data to enhance its language models. Although the AI company promised that paywalled content would be excluded from websites, several high-profile news sites, including CNN, Reuters, and the New York Times, blocked GPTBot. Their number continued growing in the following weeks.

Insurance is a somewhat slow adopter of technology, and many fintech startups are partnering with traditional insurance companies to help automate processes and expand coverage. From mobile car insurance to wearables for health insurance, the industry is staring down tons of innovation. Some insurtech companies to keep an eye on include Oscar Health, Root Insurance and PolicyGenius.

November 04, 2022
Is a perfect copy of one of a Picasso, Rembrant, or a Van Gogh’s painting worth the same as the real thing? Non-fungible tokens – NFTs create digital scarcity for art pieces and collectives where there was none. The lack of digital scarcity in the creator economy is one of the main reasons people have slowly but surely been gravitating to NFTs as a possible solution. Let’s take a deeper look at what exactly is NFTs Art and some promising developments.

Blockchain and AI – Convergence Foundational Technologies

Blockchain and AI – Convergence Foundational Technologies
Blockchain-AI convergence is a key factor for the present and future of technology as both these emerging and foundation technologies deal with data, value storage and creation. On one hand, Blockchain builds a foundational encryption architecture that enables secure digital storage and sharing, rewarding with data or anything of value. AI, on the other hand, creates a foundational direction to gather, analyze, generate and predict insights from data which generates, predicts and manages value. These two (out of many) areas of blockchain and AI have to be combined to create solutions, scaled technology and business infrastructure. However, to properly manage and use data, there is the need of a third holistic technology, Big data.

How Can We Protect People's Data With Blockchain And AI Tech For Good?

Date : September 28, 2020

In order to protect people's data with blockchain and AI tech for good, we have to build and deploy an ecosystem with an open source set of APIs that limits how much technology makers can learn about individual customers. What these sets of APIs do is analyse user data while keeping the anonymity for that source of data.

Artificial Intelligence solutions are already being deployed within all our interactions on social media and the internet, from the sensors on our IoT driven smartphones to our financial, wellness and healthcare data. AI is now being integrated on the top of blockchains solutions too, especially in the financial industry and supply chain transactions.

Top AI Books of all Time and Reflections
AI is rapidly changing everything. It is transforming society, the very way we live and act as social creatures, how we behave, how we do business, and even the very fabric of our own human identity. Cities are managed by machine driven big data gathered by sensors, constructing together what we known as the Internet of Things. An escalating digital transformation is transforming our vast amounts of paper ledgers into digital records, from traffic to finance to medical records. These, which convey most of the data gathered about us, are now processed in the cloud and augmented with machine learning artificial intelligence’s multiple tools, which are stored in blockchain distributed ledgers.

Welcome to the Metaverse Revolution
Thinkers360
October 26, 2022

“For if you suffer your people to be ill-educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make thieves and then punish them.”
― Sir Thomas More, Utopia

“The wisdom of the crowds has peaked. Web 3.0 is taking what we’ve built in Web 2.0 — the wisdom of the crowds — and putting an editorial layer on it of truly talented, compensated people to make the product more trusted and refined.” Jason Calacanis

If you’re waiting for the metaverse revolution, you already missing it. It is happening in front of you!

The Metaverse is a new door for Humanity opening up to our society 5.0., Blockchain NFTs act as the keys.

The Metaverse or Metaverses are opening new roads. The Metaverses are drive us to new digital interactive worlds that open expanded experiences, fantasies and that are quickly becoming our new real, augmented and virtual realities. Our new digital twin transformed world.

We are living in a digital twin metaverse world. Digital twins are critical to explain our data enabled tech world. Digital twins are the virtual representation of our reality, our cities, our bodies, our buildings, our objects that serves, portrait the real-time digital counterpart of our personal and social physical objects or processes.

The concept originated earlier with the first practical definition and construction of digital twin with NASA in an attempt to improve physical model simulation of spacecrafts in 2010. This concept is more important than ever.

Are you ready for Metaverse revolution! Still from video by Dinis Guarda

Digital twins and metaverse are one related iteration as the virtual models, also called web 3.0 — the major concepts of technological times. The metaverse together with digital twins represent and expand our social economic models designed to accurately reflect and represent our physical objects and its iterations and datification.

The Metaverse is now becoming tech’s next trillion-dollar opportunity. Increasing number of companies are moving in immersive mixed reality virtual spaces that will allow users, consumers, businesses to go beyond what’s possible in real life. This has been highlighted in multiple reports such as a recent one from CB Insights, which highlights how the Metaverse will disrupt at least 13 leading global business industries including fashion, retail, gaming, education and more.

The Metaverse concepts and all the metaverses platforms are the platforms, the agoras of the 21st century. The world economy in 2022 is around USD 80 trillion. Goldman Sachs is putting the value of the metaverse at $12 trillion.

That’s more than the top 30 largest companies on the Dow Jones, including Apple and Microsoft at today’s prices.

The metaverse has already changed the way that we live and work. But that is just the beginning!

All major technologies players and now also governments and cities in the world are planning for the Metaverse. Meta, former Facebook, has been leading the talk at least in the media. Tech giant Microsoft announced on May 24 the creation of an “industrial metaverse”. This announcement highlights the urgent innovation for the work force that will allow workers, businesses to wear augmented reality headsets to manage supply chains.

Metaverse products are going increasingly to be used in work and business-related applications as there’s needs to be created further breakthrough consumer product yet.

The major Silicon Valley venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) believes that gaming infrastructure and technologies will be “key building blocks of the Metaverse.”

The Metaverse and its set of solutions are and will be increasingly offering hybrid Mixed Augmented Reality state of existence right now.

Metaverse NFTs Web 3.0, infographic, from book Metaverse NFTs Uprising, by Dinis Guarda

Some technological developments are so big, they change our behaviour. Change our society. That is the case of the Metaverse!

The Metaverse concept and the Web3 ideological framework (also known as Web 3.0 and most of the times designed as web3) is a large idea for a new development iteration of the World Wide Web based on the nature of the blockchain technologies.

These technologies look at new system of governance that open the concept of centralised to the larger iteration of decentralised web. This is a big shot as most of the human organisations are highly centralised. So far there are a few early-stage proper working and advanced Web 3.0 applications, but new developments in integrated AI big data, blockchain, AR and VR with NFTs and immersive digital experiences are embedding in the web infrastructure, new more advanced true potential.

Web 3.0 aims to be the third generation of internet and all its related services for advancing websites, IP, concept generations, human interfaces, and applications that will focus on using a machine-based AI — ML.

This web3 infrastructure is the layout for the Metaverse revolutionary capacity to leapfrog our technologies in further spatial computation — digital twins- that can incorporate and foster understanding of data to provide a data-driven and Semantic Web. Web3 Metaverse is designed to augment our human gig economy and creative economy and incorporate more balance decentralised metaversive experiences.

The ultimate goal of all the concept of the Web 3.0 is to create and develop more powerful and intelligent, connected and open digital experiences and websites — web experiences. These digital experiences will integrate AR VR and Mixed reality integrated Technologies and experiences.

Some working technologies that qualify as Web3 can be listed in my infographic bellow and in this list:

  • Blockchain 360 supply chain and related fintech, payment and certification, plus cloud computation Technologies;
  • Cryptocurrency — Tokenomics: The major Cryptocurrencies that have created tokenomics and new business community driven ecosystems with Bitcoin as the Golden standard and Ethereum being the biggest by far.
  • Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) that have created a 50 billion usd business since 2021 and counting.
  • Decentralised Apps (dApps);
  • Smart Contracts as the web3 digital layer of certifications;
  • Distributed Computing (Edge Computing);
  • Augmented Reality AR and Virtual Reality VR and the hybrid Mixed Reality MR iterations.
  • Avatars — As the Digital identity in the Metaverse / Web 3 that will be represented by avatars with utility. Avatars in particular in the form of nonfungible tokens (NFTs) are and will increasingly play a critical role in the Metaverse, serving as a user’s digital identity within virtual spaces.

The hybrid-Mixed-Augmented-verse is the future maze of our human existence. It is the future of our social economic tribes.

Our stories. Our narratives. Our perception is changing in a time of Humanity Beta!

The Metaverse will marks a new major chapter in Humanity cultural history by offering an alternative Evolutionary mode of storytelling now in digital transformation times.

Stories have sustained humanity culture and civilisation for many millennia. Stories teach us to speak, read and write; assimilate civil codes, and forge our identities. This will be done now in digital terms. Through stories and narratives, we learn about language and psychology, belonging and ownership, and the sense of right and wrong. This will now come to the Metaverse platforms we are and will increasingly build.

Metaverse technologies will define the narrative of our lives and our communities, and, by extension, of our centralised and decentralised circular socio-economic models, financial codes, and ethics. Will create new Maze directions and it is in our hands to make it a Utopian narrative.

Humanity Beta is the next stage of humanity. From Humanity 1.0, to Humanity 2.0. We are shifting From Humanity Alpha to Humanity Beta!

“This Metaverse is going to be far more pervasive and powerful than anything else. If one central company gains control of this, they will become more powerful than any government and be a god on Earth.” Tim Sweeney

The future is perpetual being written in our present. And, that future is now.

“You wouldn’t abandon ship in a storm just because you couldn’t control the winds.”
― Thomas More, Utopia
