Artificial intelligence is a buzz word these days, with good reason. Text, voice and vision recognition notably represent a huge business opportunity and this, in many fields: health, defense, marketing, logistics and so on.
Yet, even with the most advanced technology, scientists are generally agreeing – by no means can we even forecast the day when we will be able to delegate complex, contextualized, dynamic and increasingly critical decision making to intelligent systems. If technology is improving decision making efficiency and efficacy in systemic and well-defined processes, people are expected to remain on the long term at the heart of fundamental “sensemaking”.
The workshop will discuss on the role of people at the center of complex decision making, notably how individuals (HI) and groups (CI) present a unique and necessary contribution for addressing large and global challenges. It will also discuss how technology can lead to new opportunities for human beings to better think, collaborate and make efficient decision making as a new collective capacity, and the role of deliberate processes such as Simplexity to help achieve higher quality collaborative decision making.
