My mom used to say that when your child is as big as you, you have to treat them with respect. What she actually said was that you had to address them using a respectful form of “you,” which doesn’t make any sense in English, but may work in Hindi or French. It worked poetically well in Malayalam. I was reminded of this maternal pearl of wisdom recently when I was watching a movie with my son.

I am attending a research retreat on mindfulness and contemplative practices at the beautiful Garrison Institute. I am learning a lot of interesting things, and meeting a lot of like-minded and excellent people – the kind of people with whom I could have deep conversation about the unreal nature of reality, unlike most people from other walks of life would politely and tactfully excuse themselves when I get a bit unreal.

But it got me thinking about the responsibilities, rights and privileges of family members.
그것은 필요한 정보와 경험의 양에 관해서, 우리는 지혜에 지식 정보 데이터로부터 명확한 계층 구조를 가지고. 우리가 원시 관찰에서 무엇을 얻을 단지 데이터 포인트는. 우리는 집계의 몇 가지 기술을 적용, 보고 차트 등. 정보에 도착합니다. 공개 상호 관계에서 더 높은 수준의 처리는 우리가 응축 실행 가능한 정보를 제공합니다, 우리는 지식을 고려할 수있는. 그러나 지혜에 도달하기, 우리는 예리한 마음과 다년간의 경험이 필요합니다, 우리가 지혜 그 자체로 의미하는 것은 분명 거리가 멀다 때문에. Rather, 이것은 명백한, 하지만 쉽게 설명되지, 그렇게 쉽게 컴퓨터에 위임되지. 적어도, 그래서 나는 생각. How could machines bridge the gap from data to wisdom?
