Seminar Insights:

Dive deep into the historical roots and contemporary implications of intelligence and unintelligence in our digital age. This seminar will explore the evolution of these concepts, their impact on society, and the ethical dilemmas they pose in the realm of artificial intelligence.


Key Highlights: 

The Origins: Explore the etymology of "intelligence" and its counterpart "unintelligence," tracing their influence from the 14th century to modern times.

The Rise of Superficial Wisdom: Delve into the modern phenomenon where the quest to appear intelligent often leads to deeper folly, disconnecting us from reality.

The Stupefaction Point: Understand how we've drifted from reality, becoming increasingly numb and dumbed down, losing our ability to discern the real world from illusion.

Ignorance vs. Stupidity: Examine whether stupidity stems from a lack of thinking skills or the veil that ego casts over our eyes, blocking true understanding.

The Role of AI: Discuss the implications of artificial intelligence in perpetuating these trends, from reinforcing biases to manipulating behaviors.

Real-world Applications and Misuses: Understand the practical applications of AI and the dangers of its misuse, including deepfakes, phishing, and beyond.


Join us to unravel the complexities of intelligence and unintelligence in the digital age and their profound implications on society and artificial intelligence.


We look forward to delving into these paradoxes with you.
