About: This year, ChatGPT reached an IQ of 155 higher than 99.9% of humanity. Einstein's IQ was 160. Next year, experts predict that ChatGPT's IQ will surpass 1000. In such a context, what intelligence is uniquely human to cultivate? What might help us not only navigate and thrive in an uncertain future, but also build a more beautiful world that our hearts know is possible?
Gandhiji would often say that if you want to learn the law of love, go to children. Modern science agrees that we are wired to be kind, in contrast to the popular narrow "survival of the fittest" narrative. So as parents and teachers, how do we help our children preserve and strengthen the integral intelligence in their hearts?
GUEST SPEAKER: we are delighted to Nipun Mehta as our guest speaker! Nipun is the founder of ServiceSpace, a distributed global movement founded on small acts of service that ignite shifts in individual and collective consciousness. Servicespace's work has reached millions and mushroomed into numerous community-based projects as well as inspiring content portals. Nipun was honored as an "unsung hero of compassion" by the Dalai Lama, not long before former U.S. President Obama appointed him to a council for addressing poverty and inequality in the US. Yet the core of what strikes anyone who meets him is his regenerative joy: "We are not what we do, but who we become by what we do."
This interaction with Nipun is intended in a workshop format wherein we come together to engage in kindness experiments within the Somaiya campus. We then circle up to share our reflections on our experience and engage in Q&A with Nipun Mehta.
To join us, simply RSVP below and you'll be emailed all the details shortly. The event will be hosted at The Somaiya School's (TSS) Auditorium. Entry will be via the MG Road entrance of TSS.
