Title:

THE NEXUS - Augmented Thinking for a Complex World - The New Convergence of Art\, Technology\, A nd Science

Abstract:

Today\, more urgently than ever\, we need to augment our thinking. The world faces enormous challenges of unprecedented complexity—\;problems that intertwine in a dizzyingly interconnected \, interdependent\, and changing landscape. The demands are clear: we must adopt new ways of thinking and working that cross the boundaries of class ical knowledge and practice\; creativity must increase\, and execution mus t excel. How can we augment our thinking spaces to increase creative solut ions? How can we make those solutions real by mastering complexity? By wor king at the Nexus\, where art\, technology\, and science converge.
