The Millennium Project continues its growth of activities in Korea lead by Youngsook Park, Chair of the Korean Node who now has purchased an online newspaper that publishes (among many other things) much of Millennium Project research and activities. With the Korean presidential election a few weeks away, there were much interest finding applications for the next Office of the President in Korea from the report to the US White House (lead by Leon Fuerth with Evan Faber for MP Intern, in which I participated in its development over two years) about upgrading the US government’s foresight capacity. My trip was hosted by Hanyang Cyber University for their 10th anniversary where I gave the keynote address on collective intelligence as the next big thing in university education. I also gave talks at: the Posco corporation for the Global Futures Studies Association (future of ICT); Korean Educational Development Institute (future of education); Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (15 Global Challenges); and Chungbuk National University (increasing individual and collective intelligence).
Meanwhile in Cairo, Kamal Zaki Mahmoud Shaeer, Chair of the Egyptian Node organized a conference of Egypt Arab Futures Research Association, where I gave video address while in Seoul about MP and the CIS. The Egyptian Academy of Science will be exploring applications of the CIS for its work and suggested using the term “integrated intelligence” rather than collective intelligence. Just as the term “state” of the future report is translated differently in different countries, I assume collective or integrated intelligence will also be translated differently in different countries too.
Next stop Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, and San Sebastian)
All the best,
