“Emerging Information Technologies: Impact and Opportunities” A Three days in house lecture by Dr. (Prof.) Tilak Agerwala

Abstract:

The rapid digital transformation of our world, the exponential improvements in computing, communication, and storage, and the evolution of machine learning are transforming professions in every industry and the very nature of science and engineering research and development. In this series of three presentations, I describe how the confluence of key emerging information technologies can improve human well-being through novel solutions, with a focus on augmenting human intelligence.

Part 3: “Collective Intelligence” addresses how information technology is assisting individuals and groups today to make better decisions and learn in smarter ways. We close this three-part series with a discussion on Collective Consciousness and the future evolution of the Global Mind, the combination of all forms of intelligence on our planet.
