// Foresigth on Digital transitions

 
Day 2 – 20th of november 2014 – starts at 15H00
 
Pièce jointe 

As part of its Digital Disruptions prospection cycle “Transitions”, and of the 6th edition of the free Open Source Software academia (fOSSa), the Fondation Internet Nouvelle Génération (FING) will organise on thursday November 20th (15h to 18h) a workshop in Rennes, in partnership with Inria, the Cantine Numérique rennaise and the Rennes Labfab.

Which is the role of openness in systems’ transformation journey ?

​We will focus ​to the “open” as a dynamics of transition to be challenged:

- its effect on fields where it is in action
- the necessary conditions so that other fields benefit from this trigger
- the “plug and play” models of openness, and especially the “bazaar »

 

>> Registration for this specific workshop (we need to calibrate the room)<<

The results of this workshop will feed the joint publication “Digital Disruptions 2015″, to be published in March 2015.

Focus on the New Hardware Bazaar !

Open Source has proven it efficienty in the field of improvable, iterable code & in collective ecosystem.
 
At present, open-source shows its efficienty in the material field : Mix up people, open source software, makers machinery, all open source & open hardware and you get a new revolution !

Jewelry, accessories, houses, agricultural machinery, vehicules, furnitures, prostheses for the disabled, humanoid robots, or DNA scanners are now documented, replicable and open-source iterable ! Often at a very competitive price.

This session will aim at discovering amazing and remarkable projects in the domain of the material (using iterated methods familiar to free communities).

Critical questions for the future will be presented: What can be the economic models? futur industrial paradigms? creative shock ? What about intellectual property for free objects ?

So many axes to explore with stakeholders in society, far beyond the core contributors of the open source communities.

 
If you can’t open it, you don’t own it ! 
 
come & discuss with us about the future open hardware transition
 
Come & discuss with us about business models in the domain !

// Open knowledge creation

// Crowdsourcing scientific research

Open science boilt down to providing open access to the results of research (open publications, open data, open code, …) but why don’t go further by opening & crowdsourcing the process of knowledge creation itself?

Come & understand the stakes, get recommandations & best practices from open science project leader around europe.

 

openness

Open science is today beginning to take a new turn, revolutionizing how scientific research is achieved. So far, open science boilt down to providing open access to the results of research (open publications, open data, open code, …). Some initiatives have taken it one stage further by opening and crowdsourcing the process of knowledge creation itself. Here, researchers provide publicly (on blogs, wikis or forums) the current state of their ongoing work and experimentation, and explain what they are achieving but also where they are blocked.
 
This aims to crowdsource the creativity and intelligence of other colleagues outside their labs, or of non-scientists. An example is the Polymath project, where for example high-profile mathematicians leveraged the help of an online community of mathematicians to solve important problems they were encountering. This allows science to progress fastest, and even to reach results otherwise unreachable. This goes also further than participative science, where for example everyone can contribute observations of stars or plants to fill in the databases of scientists. Here it is the very process of understanding and problem solving which is crowdsourced.
 
This is at the same time shacking the traditional model of authorship in science. The notion of being “the” person of “the” lab who discovered a phenomenon or invented a new method becomes blurred, as they can be generated by large group of partially anonymous contributors. This also opens the possibility to other researchers to explore alternatives of one’s own openly communicated idea and get to the goal earlier. Such challenges have already found stimulating approaches in the world of open-source software and hardware. Yet, specific questions arise when they are applied to scientific research, related to the organization and recognition of authorship in science.
 
The special session on open science at Fossa will explore these new directions where the process of discovery is being reinvented, as well as the challenges that arise.

Dear community !
 
We are please to present you the first topic of fOSSa 2014 edition that will take place on 19-20-21 Nov, in Rennes, France.
 
/ Crypto Currencies in context
// Crypto Currencies let’s look under the hood

 
Crypto-logo

We all agree that “Money is everywhere”, isn’t it?
But how many of us knows where does it come from ? Who creates it ? How does it really work
 
Do you think that when a technology stakes are high, impacting tremendously the society, this technology has to stay open ?
For instance, what would have happenned if the protocol HTTP would be closed?

 

Linux system is nowadays everywhere, security protocols are open and we can easily detect defects in the code…
Art gets open, Hardware gets opens, Vehicules gets open,… but what about money?

 

We propose in this track to figure out how a currency works today and what are the new challenges arising.
We will look at crypto – currencies in context, we will also look under the hood and discuss how the IT technologies is bringing some very interesting tools in this domain (are they fixing the currency limits as we currently forsee?).

 

This track will be a great opportunity to better understand what is money and figure out the prospect of the future “open money web”.

 
  • Surprise : Chris Ellis will also show us that the dyke has yield: Crypto-Currencies algorithms can be applied to other domain that Chris will present, he will also show codes!

  • Transitions underway and role of openness in the emergence of new ecosystems.

Since its early editions fOSSa conference essentially addressed the open source software & its models. The latests editions had broaden the spectrum addressing open technologies, ecosystems & associated changes in economic, social, political scientific & technical fields.   fOSSa 2014 will investigate open models that are currently investing, reinvesting or will soon invest all conceivable areas in software, science or even currency domains!
