Join us on 17th May at 10am BST/9am GMT with Bogdan Bocșe, Managing Co-Founder at Knosis.ai and Envisage.ai. Bogdan will present a deconstruction by-inversion and by-reduction-to-absurd of the famous Chinese Room thought experiment, showing how, in spite of being tempting and easy-to-understand, thought experiments have a high chance to enforce preconscious biases and assumptions of the researcher/student/listener. This "injection of bias" happens because, upon hearing a story, the listener pre-consciously fills in the blanks/the unknowns with hidden/mute assumptions, which do NOT then reach the "debate" from the conscious mind. As you may expect, this phenomenon especially affects universities from Western countries with biases about non-Western cultures. (notes to self)
