Discussions with Jerome C. Glenn Co-Founder The Millennium Project
At the Digital Media City event in Seoul, Dr. Jerome Glenn and myself were speakers. I had the pleasure to have some deep discussions about the future of technology and learning over dinner with Dr. Jerome. He is an incredible future visionary, and was simply amazing to be with.
About the university, Jerome said that we will discover more complex uses for the university. The university can be anywhere and everywhere using the internet. Lectures can be done anywhere over the internet. Instead the campus can be used for group tasks and perhaps a site for venture funds and venture companies working with students. We will find new and more complex uses for the campus.
Jerome said we should instead of focusing on putting more content into the brain we should focus on the main point which is increasing intelligence.
We also had interesting discussions about swarm intelligence. Jerome said that the reason humans swarm to cities may be that we are on one step to leaving the planet – since we must leave to survive as eventually the sun will burn up the planet.
