Thinking in a Digital World

Earlier this week, BCG Henderson Institute Fellow Luc de Brabandere presented about “Thinking in a Digital World” at the ETH Pavilion in Davos.

Luc talked about robots and artificial intelligence, and how we need to rediscover the power of human thinking. With this claim as a premise, he shared three imperatives:

Be logical ! We need to think better, go beyond mathematics and embrace the science of valid reasoning which underlies the computer industry

Be critical ! We need to think more and learn how to deal with the flow of arguments on Internet designed to influence or persuade us

Be creative ! We need to think differently, since a digital transformation cannot be successful without new mental models.
