In collaboration with the Lorentz Center, Rijksmuseum Boerhaave organizes the Lorentz Lecture Do Smart Devices Make Us Less Smart?. The English lecture will be given by Tony Chemero.


What is the long-term impact of technological advances on human cognitive abilities? Cultural narratives and recent scientific investigations have painted a mostly negative picture. However, the versatility and accessibility of digital technologies means that they shape the interplay between technology and human cognition in multiple ways. In the lecture, Chemero highlights the need to attend to issues like temporary versus long-term impact, cognitive versus motivational influence, and how we think about cognition - as strictly internal processes or as the dynamic interplay between internal processes and external tools. He'll show implications of this for both research and society, reinforcing the importance of user’s self-control and raising questions about what should be assessed in educational testing.
