The more advances we make in the realm of artificial intelligence with the advent of deep learning networks, the more we are learning about being human. Quite frankly, this might seem like a strange area of focus for a blog on the future of associations. However, we are facing a future in which being more human will be a critical piece of how we move forward together as a species. Understanding brain function – how we think, what consciousness is, what influences us and how we make decisions will have important consequences for us and our world.
So, we are going to run down some rabbit holes and as we develop our own theories on “being human” we will be happy to share. After all, we are all in this together. If we want to understand our organizations, we have to put not inconsiderable effort into understanding others – and ourselves.
