They erect walls, build double doors and carve bows and arrows, achieving greater security and stability of the community through technological advances. Overseen by Director Bing Song, the Berggruen China Center and its fellows are focused on the Frontier Technologies and Society program, the Digital Governance program, and its own Globalization and Geopolitics program. La dernière demi-heure de Hold-Up est une sorte de bouquet final interprétatif avec une trame assez simple : les tenants d’une gouvernance mondiale, qui se retrouvent presque tous dans « l’Institut Berggruen », ont inventé la pandémie pour soumettre l’humanité au « Great reset », la grande réinitialisation.

The one-world viewpoint provided by Confucian thought challenges the pillars of a two-world system in a number of ways. , In 2018, the Prize was awarded to author and public philosopher Martha C. Nussbaum to recognize her ability to use the power of literature and the classical world to help global audiences understand vulnerability—particularly the emotions in moral and political life—and the conditions for human wellbeing and happiness.  It advocates not only a fiscal and political union within Europe but also the engagement of European citizens. Chairman and Founder, Nathan Gardels Continuing his story, Professor Ames tells us that when Fu Xi died, the character of Shen Nong takes his place and as ‘the great farmer’ chisels and steams wood to manipulate natural materials into a tool for man. The Institute’s other projects in California include the LA Committee and Sense LA. In 2013, the council met with Henry Kissinger in New York, and, later, Paramount leader Xi Jinping of China and other Chinese leaders at the council’s first “Understanding China” conference in Beijing. In adherence to this notion of human worth and value, Professor Ames stipulates the in the language of Confucianism “human beings aren’t things, they’re events”. Co-Founder + Editor-In-Chief of Noema Magazine, Dawn Nakagawa The Berggruen Institute is committed to proposing and implementing new ideas of effective governance through three of its projects: the 21st Century Council, the Council for the Future of Europe, and the Think Long Committee for California. In seeing his struggles, Zigong proclaimed of a new technology called a ‘wellsweep’ which takes water out of the river and distributes it over the fields less laboriously than relying on human strength alone. On est donc tout à fait en harmonie avec l’univers fictif décrit plus haut. The ToftH Fellowship Program invites and hosts fellows separated into three groups: Junior Fellows, Fellows, and Senior Fellows. In a world not too far in the future where artificial intelligence touches almost all walks of life, Confucian teaching tells us the identity of AI will be formed from its relationality. Instead of acting alone, human beings have the responsibility to be co-creators of the universe serving in unison with the technology they create. Under this logic, the cosmos can be conceptualized as a continuous flow, a process which will change through time and this change, even if driven by new technologies, is accepted within the tradition. Professor Ames advises that in dealing with the transition from robots on the factory floor, into healthcare, into security and into family life, we must be certain that such technologies are consistent with human values which in-of-themselves align with cosmic values. In January of 2014, the Institute created The WorldPost, a not-for-profit, online global publication which began publishing through the Washington Post platform in 2018. Beginning with the former, the dualistic assumptions within the Western philosophical narrative are derived from a ‘two-world’ cosmology, driven by the separation of the individual and supported by human exceptionalism. The Council and Germany’s labor minister, Ursula von der Leyen, proposed an investment, training, and jobs program for Europe. So far, more than 60 scholars have been awarded Fellowships. To summarize, instead of the teleology so central to the Greek tradition, Confucian thought promotes a oneness where human centric values of filial duty (xiao dao, 孝道), the importance of family (jia, 家) and living honestly (cheng, , 诚) are integral and intertwined with the cosmic order, not separated from it. , In October 2017, the Berggruen Institute partnered with The Washington Post to publish The WorldPost, a media platform that publishes op-eds, features and videos exclusively on The Washington Post.

Concurrently, the Institute also formed a new partnership with the University of California Press to publish a new book series on the great transformations. The latter part of this requirement has fallen short in previous technological advancements. The Council is chaired by former President of Mexico Ernesto Zedillo.. The Future of Capitalism program seeks to envision new models and mechanisms for managing and legitimating market economies while addressing the current environmental and distributional challenges. Fluidity and change are accepted into the tradition, and there is no externally imposed pattern on the universe because as Professor Ames describes “everything is part of an inside with no outside”. In explaining this way of thinking, Professor Ames draws upon what he considered to be a beautiful passage from the Book of Changes. Taking lessons from this interaction, Professor Ames posits that technologies which create human existence in a way which is not consistent with the dao (道) or the proper way of things, risk offending the values which humans share with the cosmos. , The Think Long Committee for California promotes a comprehensive approach for improving California's government. Professor Ames reveals that the simple English translation of ‘Book of Changes’ hides the nuance from its Chinese name, yi jing, where the character yi (易) itself associates with a change which is adding, increasing or benefiting. LOS ANGELES, Dec. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Berggruen Prize Jury today announced its selection of Dr. Paul Farmer as the winner of the 2020 Berggruen Prize for … This disparaging notion of creativity, rooted in the Promethium concept to be daringly original, maintains its grasp in the language of modern society.

Furthermore, human exceptionalism holds no traction in Confucian thought, because as Tang Junyi writes “the pervasive idea that Chinese have with respect to tian (天, heaven) is that it is inseparable from the world”. To pursue robotic technologies in a way consistent with ritual propriety (li, 禮), it is important to understand li as an hydridic and progressive concept which will evolve with subsequent generations of the human experience. Los Angeles, CA 90013, Nicolas Berggruen A rendering shows how the trails to the Berggruen Institute might look after landscaping is completed.

Un Plan pour une mutation génétique de l’humain et l’asservissement total de l’Humanité. More time passes and after Shen Nong dies, the story continues with Huang Di, Yao and Shun, who hollow trees, yolk oxen and ride horses, establishing transport as the emerging technology of the time. Aptly marking the first online event of previously offline talks hosted in the ongoing Berggruen seminar series, Professor Roger Ames synthesized ancient philosophy with emerging technologies in his talk ‘Confucianism Commonsense Meets the AI Revolution”. It follows that we cannot encode or implant a moral system into the technology itself, rather the harmonious identity of an artificial being follows from their interactions with humans, other robots and the natural world. How does technology fit into this Confucian one-world thinking? It has two main programs: the Universal Basic Assets program which explores ways to equip individuals with universal access to an asset base that is mutually administered and distributes benefits to its stakeholders and the New Political Economy program which explores innovative proposals for how leaders at all different levels of governance can best respond to and reshape globalized capitalism. Instead of replicating the ways of nature, Professor Ames’ instead considers the Confucian instruction to be one of coordinating nature, building symmetry between human values with cosmic values. Further integrating technology with society, he initiates the market as a platform to facilitate the bartering and exchange of goods. Established by philanthropist Nicolas Berggruen in 2016, the prize is awarded by the Los Angeles-based Berggruen Institute, a research organization dedicated to … In response, the farmer becomes angry referring to his teacher’s guidance that contrived technologies, and those who are contriving in what they do, are sure to harbor a contriving mind.

Junior Fellowships, consisting of philosophers, artists, and social scientists, run for up to three years. Je viens de visionner Hold up, un film qui relate l'épopée du Covid-19 avec de nombreux interviews de scientifiques honnêtes, qui révèlent certaines vérités sur ce complot mondial. Primarily, as opposed to a divine ordered universe, Professor Ames explains that, through quoting Marcel Granet, the “Chinese wisdom has no need for the idea of God”, and uses the words of Joseph Needham to illustrate that by involving neither God nor Law, “the mechanical and quantitative, the forced and the externality imposed, were all absent” in Chinese philosophy. In May 2013, the Council held a “town hall” meeting endorsed by the French President Francois Hollande, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, and Italian labor minister. Later still, a writing system was devised, allowing the documentation of society to last the test of time.  Nathan Gardels is editor in chief of The WorldPost, and Kathleen Miles is the executive editor.

Following from Carek’s theatrical work first bringing the term robot into common usage, the 20th century bore witness to a slew of science fiction novels where creativity applied to new technologies was equally viewed with fear and distain, consider Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein or Friedrich Nietzche’s Übermensch. Art. We become people because we live in our relationships with other people”. Mourners hold photos of Qasem Soleimani in Tehran on Jan. 9. Perhaps the most resounding takeaway from the discussion with Professor Ames is one of the collective responsibility falling on the shoulders of both human and artificial beings. cliquez sur l’image pour voir la vidéo.  The Institute has launched resident fellowship programs at several universities, including Stanford University, Harvard University, NYU, Cambridge and Tsinghua University in Beijing. The Think Long California Committee, Sense LA, and the Council for the Future of Europe are all housed under the FoD program. Additionally, Professor Ames explains that the long-lasting notion of xiao from antiquity to modern Chinese society today has been important for intergenerational transmission of cultural traditions, establishing the degree of continuity in Confucian societies which makes them unique from their Greek, Italian, Iranian and Egyptian counterparts. In a one worldview, we all share in this mission: establishing a relationship with technology for mutual benefit is a job for all humans, not just the engineers and the technologists who code the composite algorithms of an artificial mind. This inherent nature of Confucianism to draw into itself traditions of competing or foreign unfamiliar worlds in order to strengthen its own identity reflects how the dynamic tradition of the one worldview may triumph to better understand and accept technological change than the two-world dualistic view of a fixed, previously patterned universe. As Professor Ames summarizes, Confucianism teaches us that “if there is only one person, there is no person. The Committee also supported Proposition 2 in 2014, “The Rainy Day Fund,” which sets aside a small percentage of revenue each year to pay the state’s debt and safeguard against economic downturns.. The concepts unearthed in these books reflect the way in which technology fits into a two-world viewpoint because human beings are acting on their creativity in a way that offends the morality and existing pattern established by God. , In 2014, the Committee helped promote SB 1253, “The Ballot Initiative Transparency Act,” eventually approved on September 28, 2014. It supports “town hall” meetings and seminars to provide a forum for Council members and European leaders to bring their ideas to the public. In the discussion that followed Professor Ames’ talk questions were asked as to how can we practically design artificial beings to be consistent and compliant with this Confucian way of thinking. Confucianism triumphs the idea that “the human experience is not lived within our skin” but dependent on our relationality to the ‘other’.  It increase the opportunities for public comment, and allows lawmakers and proponents to make changes before ballot initiatives go to the voters. The term creativity is confined to the realms of art, literature and performance, and when applied to these mediums often indicates the value and success of their form. As an alternative to ancient Greek dualism and its lasting influences on Western thought, Confucian as a process cosmology (yi zhong guo cheng, 一种过程) thus encourages us to embrace a system which doesn’t deny change but instead privileges the dynamism of life. In his 2005 book, Ray Kurzweil stokes this fear, warning that the ‘singularity is near’, the singularity being a point in time at which technological growth becomes uncontrollable and irreversible. In stark contrast to a world of individual objects conceptualized in dualistic thinking, Professor Ames summarizes Confucian commonsense built with human becomings (学以成人), with the recognition of the interdependence of human beings (己欲立而立人), and on the value of assimilating difference (忠恕之道). The integration of emerging technologies into society often raises concerns over ‘the morality of machines’. A broad-ranging philosopher of politics and ethics, international justice and bioethics, O’Neill is a Professor Emerita of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge and the former chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission in Great Britain. The Berggruen Institute is an independent think tank aimed at reshaping political and social institutions in the face of the great transformations of the 21 st century. Vice President of Programs; Deputy Editor of Noema Magazine, Bing Song The Berggruen Institute works across cultures, disciplines and political boundaries, engaging great thinkers to develop and promote long-term answers to the biggest challenges facing humanity today. The Berggruen Institute presented its first Berggruen Prize for Philosophy and Culture in 2016. Presenting passages from the Book of Changes (yi jing, 易经), Professor Ames explains the situation of technology in the Confucian tradition. The institute's core work is done through its four programs: The Transformations of the Human, The Future of Capitalism, The Future of Democracy, and Geopolitics and Globalization. As such, robots do not just have to accommodate themselves in a one directional way into the human experience, but the human experience must also change and adapt to the inclusion of robots. As Professor Ames laments, “when we build atomic bombs, when we create technologies that can destroy the world, bankrupt the environment or poison the water, these are technologies which are not consistent with a flourishing cosmos”. The ideas that emerged from those original discussions became the foundation for the Berggruen Institute through the launch of local and global initiatives and the publication of Intelligent Governance for the 21st Century: A Middle Way Between West and East, a Financial Times “Best Book of the Year.”. The second conference was held in 2015; the third took place in 2018. Connaissez vous l’Institut Berggruen qui regroupe des personnalités très haut placées, dont des chefs d’États? The original passage reads “天地的大德曰生” and its core meaning is translated by Ames as “the greatest capacity or virtuosity of the cosmos is life itself”. In this world of ‘things’, the existing order is governed by a divine universe, and the distinction of actors within the universe is demarcated by “nouns”. Akin to the Berggruen’s mandate to bring to the forefront ‘Ideas for a Changing World’, Professor Ames re-conceptualizes how we can think about this definition of robots and artificial intelligence in a modern world by drawing on the teachings of Confucian philosophy. Harvard Medical School Professor Paul E. Farmer became the fifth recipient of the annual Berggruen Prize for Philosophy and Culture, the Berggruen Institute … In explaining this point, Professor Ames provides a passage from Analects 2.21, where Confucius is asked “Why are you not employed in government”? New technologies must thus be created in their image, as to serve the mutual benefit of the technology itself, the human and the cosmos. . Taking a resonating quote from Professor Ames’ talk, in the Confucian tradition “each generation has the responsibility of inheriting the tradition, embodying the tradition, writing commentary on the tradition, using the tradition to solve pressing problems of the time, and then when their hair turns white, passing it onto the next generation and recommending they do the same. Tout y passe alors : la cryptomonnaie, les nanoparticules, la 5G… About MWC; Real Emcees. Hold Up est un documentaire de 2h43, ...

So, in the same light we need not extrapolate from the ancient Greek tradition that man and machine are antagonists, but instead can take optimistic from the ancient Chinese tradition that man and machine can exist for mutual benefit. , In June 2018, the Berggruen Institute announced plans to house a China Center at Peking University, an interdisciplinary research center founded with the aim to foster more cross-cultural dialogue. Under dualistic commonsense, humans live in a world ordered by speciesism, enforcing a hierarchy which celebrates human beings and their goals as central to the cosmos. Taking this concern together with the Daoist critique, Professor Ames advocates for caution that the values we encode into technology must live up to their intended purpose. In the Confucian tradition, everything is defined by its context (一多不分观), such that the ultimate worth of human beings is conditioned on their deference of relationships to nature and to other human beings. Executive Vice President, Nils Gilman Professor Ames comments on this worldview as a reductionist cosmology because the world of change is rationalized by some antecedent and unchanging principle of privileging God over world, form over change, theory over practice and soul over body. Bradbury Building Such caution, Professor Ames suggests, can be learnt from the Daoist criticism of the Confucian worldview. To elucidate how the yi jing can inform our treatment of emerging technologies, Professor Ames begins with its story of Fu Xi, who looked upon the world, at the animals, at the plants and at his own body understanding then the transactionality of the human experience. Deux heures et quarante-cinq minutes pour exposer tous les mensonges liés à la pandémie de Covid-19 et ce qu'ils dissimulent.  The report recommended the devolution of power to local governments and school districts, reform of the democracy initiative process to ensure greater consideration of measures proposed by the public, establishment of a “rainy day” fund for economic downturns, a body of long-term oversight to balance the short-term, special-interest character of the elected legislature, and modernization of California’s tax system. The Berggruen Institute administers the Prize and welcomes nominations of thinkers whose ideas have both intellectual depth and long-term … The year 2020 marks 100 years since the concept of a ‘robot’ was first coined by the Czech playwright Karel Capek in his 1920 play “Rossum’s Universal Robots”.

Mirroring the view of the famous modern Chinese philosopher Zhao Tingyang, Professor Ames sees Confucianism as a hydridic tradition, possessing a centripetal harmony which draws the outside influence into the inside system. The million-dollar award, chosen by an independent jury, is given annually to a thinker whose ideas are of broad significance for shaping human self-understanding and the advancement of humanity. Et voilà que le Journal du Dimanche dévoile que l'ancienne eurodéputée a été rémunérée à hauteur de 10.000 euros par mois par l'Institut Berggruen. It is unsurprising then that the common narrative in a modern treatment of emerging technologies and the increasing intelligence of artificial beings is one of fear. Reflecting on the contemporary examples given in the Book of Changes, technologies of transport, the written word, ways to prepare foods or secure the community, have served humanity well, lasting the test of time. The centrality of family underpins the attainment of proper governance in a Confucian worldview, only when the family is governed correctly, can the community or the nation also be so. While this dualism has a sustained critique in Western scholarship for over a century, it maintains a persisting influence over commonsense and how humans interact with their external environment. About Dr. Max; The Compound LP – Digital Edition; Compound LP: Sex Bot Article; T.R. In November 2011, the Committee published its report, A Blueprint to Renew California. In September 2019 it launched its first project with the Korean American Federation to develop formal and actionable recommendations for the city’s master urban plan, a field test in participatory representative democracy. Under this Confucian worldview, man and universe, ren (人) and tian (天) are connected, so when a human being creates his or her own identity, they also create wisdom in the universe. Song Bing comments on the situation of this fear as coming from the anxiety that machines will conquer humans and so, in a fight or flight response, humans must maintain a hierarchical power, a dominance which secures the safety of future generations. Striving instead for ‘optimizing symbiosis’, not material or individual gain, can help frame technological development in a way which is more sustainable to both human and natural life. Professor Ames grounds his discussion by describing John Dewey’s two alternative worldviews: the ‘two-world dualistic thinking’ ascribed to the classic Greek tradition, and the ‘one-world ecological thinking’ prevalent in East Asian philosophy and the Confucian tradition. In 2019, two of their projects: AI meets Chinese philosophers and Tianxia and geopolitics reached book publication stage. , The inaugural recipient in 2016 was Charles Taylor, one of the world’s foremost philosophers who has deepened the understanding among different intellectual traditions and civilizations. 304 S. Broadway, Suite 500 As Professor Ames explains, a two-world view espouses a means and ends exclusive instrumentality where the entire cosmos is patterned in such a way as to serve the assumptions built into a teleology.

Senior Fellows are typically invited to co-design a research program that explores key aspects of the contemporary transformations of the human. If and when such a point occurs, the human race faces existential risk and until then, the relationship between man and machine is inherently defined by antagonist interaction. Leurs outils : L’invention du Covid et le vaccin ARN . , In 2010, Nicolas Berggruen and Nathan Gardels sat down with a group of academics, business leaders, and political veterans in California to discuss the economic and political stresses caused by the global financial crisis, the widespread perception of failing political institutions and Western democracies, and how China’s rise would affect the international landscape in the 21st century.
