Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
We want to develop this page into a discussion platform to bring in knowledge and information about the new technologies and how they could be taught in the classrooms. It is not so much about using digital tools but about understanding the emerging philosophy and inquiry into the broader aspects that the new technology eco system is posing at present. For instance, industry leader like Elon Musk of Tesla & SpaceX rather than the government is now demanding that AI and ML should be regulated as there is a real danger of machines becoming intelligent and turning rogue if it is not regulated at the point where these are being developed.
Why SEAA Future+ Talks?
There is an urgent need to build top level talent with ethics and value systems much before they take up positions in a company. It is more real now than before as the industry may not have the time or the window to train people coming in with raw knowledge from the campuses whether they are from Tech or Humanities stream. Also the definite drop expected in number paying jobs will also mean social chaos unless the increased productivity and earnings are distributed fairly to avoid the accumulation of wealth in few hands with the rest struggling for their survival. Democratically elected and responsible governments and a welfare state is absolutely needed as also introduction of concepts like Minimum Basic Income (MBI) that will hopefully solve the scourge of endemic poverty. .
We hope the platform we are creating would be addressing all these issues ! For starters we have five people addressing the SEAA Future+ platform as part of our 14thInternational Accreditation Conference (virtual for three days on Nov 22,23 and 24, 2021)
