The Workshop León & Madrid (Spain) | May 2-4, 2023 From Information to Insights: Beyond AI, from Information to Knowledge to Sustainability https://www.glossalab.org/glossalab-en/GlossaLAB_Workshop_2023 The dense and pervasive web of information technologies connecting people and sensors is constantly turning information into actions and creating extraordinary opportunities in a historical circumstance we designate as the "information age". At the same time, current technological and societal endeavours shows, on the one hand, that the benefits of big data and Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based approaches are very uneven in scope and, on the other hand, that the key question of our time is how to master information to trigger appropriate actions and "insights" for the benefit of individual and collective lives. This problem is actually twofold: on the one hand, we should better understand information in its multiple aspects and contexts of application; on the other hand, we need to cope with the enormous flow of [...]

. Αναδρομική Έκθεση Ζωγραφικής Δημήτρη Δαρζέντα 21 Ιουνίου - 2 Ιουλίου 2009 Πνευματικό Κέντρο Δημου Ερμούπολης Αιθουσα Τέχνης "Ερμούπολη" Ώρες λειτουργίας: καθημερινά 10:30 - 14:00 & 19:00 - 22:00 Η ζωγραφική του Δημήτρη Δαρζέντα καταφέρνει πάντα με τον καλλίτερο τρόπο να μας μεταδώσει το πάθος να κατανοήσουμε μια πραγματικότητα που, αν και άφθαστη, πρέπει να την προσεγγίσουμε να την ερμηνεύσουμε να δράσουμε μέσα σε αυτή. Το έργο του δεν υπερ-εξυμνεί, δεν ωραιοποιεί, δεν μεγαλύνει την λατρεία του πραγματικού , είναι ειλικρινές, λιτό και πολυδιάστατο. Το πεδίο της διασποράς αυτών, των εκ πρώτης άποψης, άτακτων σημείων δεν είναι τυχαία, είναι το πεδίο των σκέψεων που μέσω των εικόνων τους καλούνται να συγκεκριμενοποιήσουν εκ νέου την αφηρημένη εκδοχή του κόσμου μας. Ένα μεγάλο έργο, που διδάσκει σε όλους μας την ‘ανοικτότητα’ και την σπουδαιότητα της ερμηνείας. Λίγα λόγια για το ζωγράφο Τάκη Δαρζέντα Ο Δημήτρης Δαρζέντας (1915-1997) γεννήθηκε και [...]
info from the infinite thought Speculative Realism / Speculative Materialism A One-Day Workshop 12–7pm, Friday 24 April 2009 Lecture Theatre H124 St Matthias Campus University of the West of England Bristol BS16 2JP Participants: Ray Brassier (American University of Beirut), Iain Hamilton Grant (University of the West of England), Graham Harman (American University in Cairo), Alberto Toscano (Goldsmiths, University of London) with a paper by Quentin Meillassoux (Ecole Normale Supérieure) The first ‘Speculative Realism’ workshop at Goldsmiths College, London, in 2007 sparked considerable interest and debate in contemporary European philosophy circles. This second workshop shall pursue some of the fundamental issues that emerged out of the first, principal among them the relation of speculative philosophy to materialist metaphysics. Materialism emerges at two key yet divergent junctures: firstly at the physicalist level, raising the problems of reduction and epistemic change, and in consequence, confronting the viability of any kind of speculative [...]

Co-edited by: Nicole Anderson Critical and Cultural Studies Department Macquarie University, Australia General Editor, Derrida Today H. Peter Steeves Professor of Philosophy DePaul University, Chicago Special Issue Topic In this special issue of Derrida Today, the editors wish to address the question of the meeting of deconstruction and science, the latter broadly defined. Since the 1960s and ‘70s, poststructuralist thought has garnered a reputation for being at odds with science and the Enlightenment worldview upon which modern science is based. This is understandable if for no other reason than the fact [...]
