The opening keynote of LSCON was interesting. I’m still processing it. Here are some quotes from Tom:
- “Pure computer power can mimic natural selection mechanism coming up with a best fit solutions”
- “Fostering creativity and innovation will be the role of learning”
What I think that he is telling us is that the way we work and produce in the future will be very different from today. Computers, big data and 3d printers will do a lot of things for us, and they are better at it than we are. As humans we need to focus on creativity and imagination. If this is true we need to educate and train in a very different way. Here is my mind map, but I do have to think on this and read more before I can give a more detailed opinion on this. Conclusion: a great keynote because it really makes me think and wonder on the implications.
