Pascal Kaufmann: New technologies - impact on companies and employees
Pascal Kaufmann, neuroscientist, is the founder of Starmind AG and Mindfire Foundation.
After completing his Master's degree in Neuroscience and Economics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) and at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL USA, Pascal Kaufmann worked for the well-known Artificial Intelligence Research Laboratory at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. There, Pascal Kaufmann was involved in numerous projects and conducted research at the interface between machine and brain to uncover the secrets of neural networks and brain activity.

New technologies - impact on companies and employees
There is a wide range of technical solutions for knowledge management. They range from databases and social media to tools based on artificial intelligence. Which technology promises the greatest possible benefit? The experience gained in companies over the past few years shows a trend in this direction. As a result, many companies around the world are relying on self-learning technology, through which each employee has the know-how of the entire group at his or her disposal. In the context of digitalization and "culture change", a new way of collaboration and communication is made possible. Behind this is "Brain Technology": a new type of software. Insights into results and the functioning of artificial intelligence in connection with the futuristic "Smart Work Places" are provided.
Biology and business: a perfect symbiosis
Starmind's Brain Technology references the workings of the human brain, which has connections and dynamic combinations between individual brain cells. Starmind's technology independently and continuously learns who in the company has what know-how and experience, creating an internal real-time network that links knowledge and people. Just like in the human brain, where brain cells are interconnected, new connections are created and impulses are redirected to find the best result. Inspired by the latest brain research, Starmind links questions with experts, in the same spirit as the intelligent networking of brain cells.
Knowledge management in the vortex of the digital revolution: how artificial intelligence is replacing knowledge management.
The experience gained by companies in the field of knowledge management in recent years reveals a clear trend: Classic systems are failing due to low acceptance among employees, high complexity and costly implementation. Today, more and more companies around the world are turning to a new type of technology that makes the know-how of the entire group automatically available to every employee. As part of the digital revolution, self-learning technologies are enabling a new way of collaboration and communication. Using European and US corporations as examples, insights will be provided into the results and functioning of artificial intelligence in the context of futuristic "Smart Work Places" and social collaboration.
Pascal Kaufmann: Artificial intelligence is the moon landing of the 21st century.
What will the world of tomorrow look like? And how exactly can intelligence be measured? Surprisingly little is still known about what intelligence exactly is. A few hundred years ago, people believed that the brain contained gears and small pumps, because clockwork was in vogue at the time. Today, many people think that there is a computer in the brain that you just have to make fast enough and it will suddenly become intelligent.
Pascal Kaufmann doubts these analogies. Pascal finds the approach interesting that the brain is probably a superorganism made up of billions of small players that could obey simple rules - like an ant colony or a school of fish. One of the latest concepts is that humans are a kind of holobiont. This means that humans consist of 95% microorganisms and only 5% of their own cells, which carry the genetic material of their parents. This puts everything in a new perspective. For Pascal Kaufmann, intelligence arises from the interaction of different elementary modules. That is why, in his view, the Internet and a collection of people are intelligent - or a multitude of cells. Intelligence has to do with surviving in a changing world, responding to stimuli and fulfilling goals. However, qualitatively, very little is understood about the principles of intelligence.
