IE Talks: From Stoicism to Complex Problem Solving: How Data & People Can Save the World
All bachelor programs
Uncertainty has surrounded humankind since the beginning of time. Through decision-making rooted in instincts, emotions, facts, and data, humans have unknowingly/unconsciously created the intricate world where we live today.
As technology has drastically evolved over the last centuries, we must ask ourselves:
- What can we tell about the kind of world we are building now?
- How can we leverage technology with the intention of making good decisions within complex environments?
- How can we solve problems we have never confronted before?
Through linking knowledge developed by Greek philosophers to the modern Complex Problem-Solving theory, we will discuss how data and people can challenge today’s most pressing issues.
