The purpose of AI

Recently, an author wrote a remarkable post on LinkedIn: the purpose of AI is Insight, not Power. Clearly, this must be his personal perspective. Everything in life follows these three domains: Love, Knowledge and Power. Insight might be a subdomain of Knowledge. In education and in healthcare, AI is about expanding Knowledge. In business and in the military, AI is...

De rechter als instrument

Afgelopen maandag heeft het Gerechtshof in Den Haag de eis van drie NGO’s (t.w. Oxfam Novib, PAX, The Rights Forum) toegewezen om de export van militaire onderdelen te stoppen (o.a. AD).

Geopolitics

The oldest (known) city is some 11,000 years old (ie, Damascus). The oldest (known) country is some 2,500 years old, being: San Marino (301 BCE), or Japan (660 BCE) or China (221 BCE). See 2020 ThoughtCo. article. Much more recent is geopolitics, which (probably) started with WW I (1914-18). Geopolitics represents the global interconnectedness of Politics, one of...
