What if humans are becoming enroboted?
An overview of approaches to detect Fake News . What if we could flag Fake News on the Internet? Wouldn’t it be a massive teaching machine in orderly discussing topics?
If you think about mitigating Global Warming, and you are looking for creative solutions to, it may make sense to map out existing approaches.
Journalism (and politics) hardly seems to do source research, hardly comes up with a rebuttal, and even seems to ignore critically (but serious) sounds. Articles by dissident scientists are collectively refused by the MSM in collective exclusion.
There are lots of examples of not explored possibilities, omitted information, and neglected statistics by experts. Experts in the Advisory Boards have been canonized. Even the press no longer asks critical questions,
When we proposed in the first blog post about coronavirus that the slow reaction and lax attitude of institutions can partly be explained by the phenomenon of groupthink, we could not imagine that later on groupthink would assume an even more dominant role in tackling the crisis. In the beginning, warnings about an emergent pandemic …
For Black Swan-like events, it seems more sensible to design robust measures than to rely on scientific models that are inherently based on previous events and therefore do not apply. And even worse, they give a misplaced feeling of being in control.
How was situation awareness built up in the Coronacrisis and how have(not) considered information multiplied the blundering into disaster?
Our hypothesis is that a lack of thinking skills among governments, health institutions and the population has seriously contributed to the spread of the Corona virus
Be careful not to project human explanatory models on nature´s brilliant solutions!
On one side, the great issues of this century – such as, for example, climate change and nuclear weapons – require a global community; on the other, immigration and nationalism form the basis of the defense mechanism of those threatened by globalization. Try new and creative lines of thinking.
In our earlier post ¨Better Ideas for Women in Top Positions¨ we were wondering if we can design better ideas to get a more proportional representation of women in board of directors. Here some more results.
Throughout history stories have help shaped our minds, our ideas and actions. With the increasing acceleration in information and biotechnology we need better stories about future technological, social and economic developments. In this 21th century, ¨societal¨science fiction might be an important genre, if not the most important, to interprete the consequences of accelarating technological developments.
Suppose you are a member of a Board of Directors of an Organization in which you have significants interests. Would you sign the declaration below thoughtlessly? ¨We reaffirm our belief that united, we are stronger in this increasingly unsettled and challenging world. We recognize our responsibility as Leaders to make our Organization stronger and our …
Instead of directing confronting her of him with -the standard way of to correct other people’s behaviour- you might design an irresistable nudge.
We are surrounded by lies and fiction. In this post we explore the topic and arrive at a Beatiful Question. We suggest two Idea Sensitive Areas, areas in need for better ideas.
In an earlier post in the series "21st Century Challenges" about Who Owns Your Medical Data? we discussed the following: In the future, Big Data algorithms and biometric sensors may detect and diagnose a disease before we have started to notice any discomfort or signs. But would you like your insurance company to tell you to stop …
Many teachers in analytical/critical thinking and writing clearly forbid students the use of analogies, because, in one sense, all analogies are faulty. However, as George Lakoff, known for his thesis that the lives of individuals are significantly influenced by the central metaphors they use to explain complex phenomena, convincingly argues that all our thinking is metaphorical. …
Focus defines the input of information that defines the thinking, and by that, the conclusions, solutions or opinions derived from it. In a schedule: information (A) is semi-processed in a funnel (A,B,C) of biases, assumptions and conditions to a logical solution, opinion or conclusion (C). Area A is the focus area, the area where the …
In this Thinkibility Boost we will explore the relation between thinking and framing. In visual arts and particularly cinematography, framing is the presentation of the visual element in an image, especially the placement of the subject in relation to other objects. Framing can make an image more aesthetically pleasing and keep the viewer's focus on …
