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 [...]

Ph.D thesis

By |2017-12-05T02:32:57+02:00June 29th, 2009|philosophy, research|0 Comments

The main purpose of this thesis is to explore the theoretical and methodological approaches that are involved in understanding how to achieve interaction, communication and collaboration in socio-technical contexts. Hence this thesis seeks for a systemic, ontological framework for understanding and approaching interaction, communication and collaboration processes, which is able to describe the ways we organise in networked societal groups or contexts of interactive participation, within a context of psychological, social, and material relations.

Examined Life

By |2016-01-12T21:10:51+02:00December 6th, 2008|documentaries, music, philosophy, research, technology|1 Comment

Examined Life takes philosophy out of the darkened corners of academia and into the hustle and bustle of the everyday, a visual reminder that great ideas are born through profound engagement with the world around us. It is directed by Astra Taylor, whose feature documentary portrait of world famous philosopher Slavoj Zizek, Zizek!, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2005. Examined Life interweaves fascinating “walks” with philosophers through places that hold special resonance for them and their ideas -- crowded city streets, deser ted alleyways, Central Park and even a garbage dump. The film is co-produced by Sphinx Productions, whose award-winning theatrical documentaries include Imagine the Sound (Best Documentary, Chicago Film Festival), Comic Book Confidential and Grass (both Genie Award winners). Featuring the “rock star” philosophers of our time, including Cornel West, Peter Singer, Slavoj Zizek, Judith Butler, Avital Ronell, Michael Hardt, Anthony Appiah and Martha Nussbaum.

Ο άνθρωπος θα απελευθερωθεί από τις θεωρητικές δοξασίες... "Μετά τα πρώτα ολοκληρωμένα αποτελέσματα από το μεγάλο πείραμα στο CERN ο άνθρωπος θα νιώθει πολύ πιο απελευθερωμένος από τις θεωρητικές δοξασίες στις οποίες ως τώρα βασιζόταν για να κατανοήσει σημαντικά κοσμολογικά ερωτήματα όπως η γέννηση, εξέλιξη και δομή του Σύμπαντος. Βασιζόμενος πλέον σε επιστημονικά δεδομένα και όχι σε υποθετικές προσεγγίσεις, θα ατενίζει με μεγαλύτερη σιγουριά το μέλλον του, δηλώνει στον Ελεύθερο Τύπο ο ακαδημαϊκός και εθνικός εκπρόσωπος της Ελλάδας στο CERN, Δημήτρης Νανόπουλος." ολόκληρο το άρθρο CERN

thinking nothing

By |2016-01-12T21:11:05+02:00July 2nd, 2008|philosophy, research|0 Comments

PARRHESIA and COLLAPSE present a one day symposium (31st July 2008) with title: THINKING NOTHING - the void and its resurgence in contemporary thought From the emergence of empty set as a basis for ontology, to materialist negative theology, to Metzinger's 'nemocentric' destitution of the subject, contemporary thought seems to be obsessed with nothing. But the politics of this nothing seems drastically different from its earlier existentialist and postmodern nihilistic incarnations. This symposium seeks to explore the problem of nothing in contemporary thought, asking precisely how the postulation of an inherent negativity as a productive realm of philosophical discourse has come to characterise our intellectual landscape, and how the contemporary void relates to those of Ancient and Modern philosophical traditions. Speakers: Justin Clemens (University of Melbourne; Author of The Mundiad, Avoiding the Subject [with Dom Pettman], and coeditor/translator of Alain Badiou's Infinite Thought) Ray Brassier (Middlesex University; Author of Nihil [...]
