Talk Synopsis
The best models we have for designing systems that create, sustain, and foster organisational learning and development are natural “learning organisations,” like a rainforest or the human brain. KE’s primary area of study and domain of action are the design and support of self-organising knowledge “ecosystems,” in which information, ideas, insights, and inspiration cross-fertilize and feed one another, free from the constraints of geography and schedule.

This talk will address:

  1. An intelligence-based view of the firm
  2. How AI tools may power up the Collective Intelligence Enhancement Lab (CIEL) and related knowledge systems technologies
  3. What next-generation learning organisations need to learn to make themselves more fully available to the benefit of AI-Enhanced Knowledge Ecosystems.

The talk will be highly interactive. It will outline the core idea of a current research project and provide space for exploring some of the “collective intelligence” distinctions in action.
