New technologies are stressing more than they reassure – Le Figaro

COLUMN – 9 out of 10 employees felt a spike of stress during their handling of high-tech devices. Every day, Quentin Périnel, journalist with Le Figaro, decrypts your (over) office life in chronic Open office.

Find daily the Open Space in the morning chronic Radio Classique, at 6:52. You can also follow her on Twitter: and Facebook @quentinperinel

I have already sealed the fate of meetings in this column several times.. The vast majority of them are in fact painful, repetitive and uninteresting. This is why it is difficult to be interested. Some employees simulate a semblance of interest nodding and frowning a very serious – just a talent for acting – while others prefer to completely disconnect from the meeting … to better connect their iPhone! Very good. But it would be selfish to forget those for whom the meeting of real importance, employees who organized and who have something to prove!

The small percentage of employees that stress before a meeting are obviously those who are themselves the epicenter, and have something to say and arguments in advance. They are the more stressed! For the preparation of the meeting at first, then by his conduct, fear to express themselves, to use the right words, to be quite charismatic … but above all by the fear of being betrayed by new technologies! According to a study by Barco, 9 out of 10 employees felt a spike of stress during their high-tech devices manipulations which are nevertheless supposed to reassure them and make their lives easier in meeting! Yet it is a fact, no trust …

It is difficult to put all his trust in applications and machines. The preparation was impeccable, well rehearsed, everything seemed to work. But D-Day, at time T, you have beautiful repeatedly press the button … Inexplicably it does not work. The curse of the bug wreaks havoc. A slide that appears absurdly before another, an application that instantly closes, or worse, compromising a YouTube video that starts at a key moment of your presentation. These are things that happen. And the most fun is that despite this stress, 80% of employees feel that new technologies are there to help. To reduce this stress, when you have a meeting with one or two employees, make sure that everyone is well at ease with what the content of the meeting … but especially with the new techonologies!

Seniors also interested in new technologies – Ouest-France

Tuesday, from 15 am, a dozen women are gathered and already trying to turn the screens of tablets. “We know all this kind of device, our children and grandchildren have …” launches Georgette.Les mamis do not hesitate to use them to try to understand themselves, alas, “at our age it is not instinctive …” finds Mary in asking for help to the moderator.

Geoffrey patiently round the table meet many and varied issues. “None of them have tablet but they are interested,” he remarked. At first, the conversation revolves around the price of these small touchcomputers then to progressively learning more resident leave the table. “I do not see, it’s too difficult. “

Interesting but …

After one hour, the attention has fallen, only Martha and Mary are still connected. Martha, 96, is the admiration of her friends. “She got it right away, said Georgette impressed. She will not wait for Christmas to offer one. “


En Indeed, the old lady is playing Scrabble against the computer, and although she is alleged to have slow brain continues to garner points.

The finding in the late afternoon is not negative. “Even if she does not see the utility of a tablet, they proved curious” finds the facilitator who has not had a moment’s respite.

He even convinced Mary to go to cyberspace where it will find help to get his PC in hand. As for Martha, she ended off its tablet by giving advice to his neighbors épatées by his dexterity: “You can not do it because you put yourself in your head that you will not succeed …” then, obviously, you have to believe.


New technologies – Le Figaro

To streamline the passenger journey, Paris airports and Air France have increasingly using new technologies. Review details and instructions.

Identity Control, baggage (liquids, creams, computers …), excavations, touching, removing shoes … over the years the constraints imposed by airlines to their passengers have continued to rise, complicating still a little boarding. So is now the same for the Thalys and Eurostar, TGV and will follow soon.

According to users, the step is often stressful and even terrible for the elderly or single mothers with toddlers. In response to this problem and complaints, airlines and airports are turning to new technologies. Latest find, the “digitization of the course to the ground.” At Orly as at Roissy, Air France and Paris Airports in fact rely on these processes to make this course as fluid as possible. If registration online or on mobile is now commonplace for most airlines now offer some print labels luggage home. But the European Commission has just added a layer of complication requiring that these labels have a green band. So if monochrome printer to print these labels on the terminals at the airport.

Those of Air France have been redesigned to be more ergonomic, both to change seats as to print their boarding pass or baggage tag. And if needed, a company officer stands nearby to assist passengers lost. Upon arrival at the airport, so it can proceed immediately to step removing luggage. In Area 6 Terminal F, fifteen controllers are ready to swallow checked baggage. First tested in Orly, these dispensing machines were heavily redesigned for easier use. Again, three company officers help passengers and is much less queue.

next is the security control. By hours, wait times vary widely. Note that in all its terminals, Paris Airports chose to lengthen the carpet where they defeated then remade his luggage for passing X-ray, allowing a gain of several seconds per passenger. And to optimize space at Roissy for example, controls for European departures were grouped between the two wings of the terminal F.

To access the plane Paris Airports and Air France are testing an automatic loading. This allows the staff to concentrate on passengers requiring special attention, babies, children traveling alone, disabled, etc. If this automation of loading is very effective in long haul for large aircraft with two aisles, it is not safe to be of common interest for the medium-haul, because the only door boarding as the central corridor of the Airbus A 320 or Boeing-737 will necessarily bottlenecks.

Finally, to the arrival in Paris, the real black spot remains the passport control. The debarking is caught between inadequate staffing of the Police Air and Frontier (PAF) at certain hours of the day and the ineffectiveness of the initialed automatic passport control system. A police source acknowledges that this system is often deliberately put out of service. Officials see indeed an evil eye the arrival of these machines “Inspectors passports” that could provoke further downsizing. Yet in less than 10 years traffic has increased by 20% and their powers have been largely extended. Result, only 3.5% of passengers – or 5,000 per day- enjoy Initials. In fact, one third of the devices is always inaccessible. A situation all the more surprising that the company that installed them, Morpho, the world leader in the field, has a maintenance service which, it seems, is rarely called.

Borne  & # xA9; Claire -Lise Havet

by contrast, automated passport control in Montreal or New York airports can handle up to 50% of passengers. Releasing all officials to screen passengers who do not have biometric passports. On this issue, the Interior Ministry refused to answer, saying that he is only “User initials, devices have been purchased by the airport.” In terms of investment, is expected to increase the number of locks: for the current 37, 87 will be installed in 2021. … Why such a delay? The investment is minimal yet: catalog value of each unit is 100 000 €. This would not be a luxury when we know that in terms of average waiting, Paris is the worst among European airports. Indeed, there are now arriving at Terminal 2 E one hour and a half wait early in the morning for passengers in economy class and one hour for business passengers.

The PAF has also introduced random checks at the arrival of flights from Schengen. “There’s nothing else to do,” a plague representing police officers. Daily between 14 hours and 18 hours, all passengers are screened. Those who come from Italy, Germany and Spain are therefore well advised if they avoid a flight arriving in the afternoon. It will be 25 minutes won because we find the F terminal or Kiosk Initials or priority access “# 1″ for frequent passengers.

There are more surprising. While police is understaffed, the Comptroller General of the PAF Roissy, Patrice Bohaume, decided to also control the airplane down to the terminal F, connecting passengers will be … again controlled 100 meters further when they leave the Schengen area. “A very difficult situation,” admits Augustin de Romanet, CEO of Paris Airport. He also admitted at a recent press conference have written to the Minister of Interior to discuss the situation. In fact, these queues are plunging indices satisfaction Orly and Roissy airports. While the entire tourism chain mobilized to restore the “Destination Paris” undermined by the attacks, and a large advertising campaign entitled “Paris loves you” was launched … Can we avoid undermining these efforts ?

A new smartphone application allows to go back in time to the streets of New York and compare the city today to what it once was, thanks to over 100 years of archives gathered on a map interactive.

the application OLDNYC ( “old NYC”) was created on the initiative of the famous New York public Library (NYPL) and is available on iOS since May 9.

with a geolocation system, the user can access the vintage photographs of buildings to which it is located. The approximately 40,000 photographs and drawings collected by the NYPL to complete the application and allow a comparison to New York today to that of the years 1870 to 1970.

“We want to further expand the concept” to “adding more context to the photos” by facilitating sharing on Instagram with a mix of current and old New York, tells the young developer, which plans even “using virtual reality goggles.”

of a total of 700,000 records available at the Library public New York, about 200,000 are in the public domain. “The laboratory technology NYPL develops various interactive tools for about a year and a half,” continues Shana Kimball. “We can not integrate all our archives but we want to share a maximum.” (afp / nxp)
