How we are structured
The ILH a has faculty model that is powered by the ILH Advisory Council.
This enables us to:
Be clear on where we can add value.
Create taxonomic order to ensure our outputs are accessible.
Grow the Advisory Council in a more focused manner.
Most importantly, we look to ensure there is cross faculty integration as that is where value is largely to be found. We periodically review this approach to ensure that it supports the mission.
The faculties are as follows:
This is broadly how many societies are structured today:
Living organisms, including people are something of an afterthought in respect to many societies. We need to invert this:
We need to put life at the centre of society and recognise that organisations and technology are there to support life. Somewhere in our past, we lost sight of this. The ILH plays a role is supporting leadership structures that put life centre stage.
Each faculty comprises several departments:
Faculty of intelligent organisations
The focus is largely on developing organisations that are people and planet centric.
Faculty of intelligent people
The focus is largely on helping individuals thrive and contribute value.
Faculty of intelligent technology
The focus is largely on harnessing the augmentative powers of new technology and to ensure that it is used in a people and planet friendly manner.
Intelligent devices (IoT, Robotics, 3D printing)
The Metaverse (AR / VR)
Smart infrastructure (towns, cities, regions, buildings)
Faculty of Intelligent Life
The focus is on what can we learn through studying anthropology, biology and other related disciplines to guide us in respect of what constitutes intelligent behaviour.
FBAP - Fungus, archaea, bacteria and protists.
We already have capability in many areas. Our initial focus will not be on, for example, protists. It is unclear at this stage whether there is anything to learn.
But given they still exist today, it has to be assumed that they are intelligent.
Nonetheless we have a placeholder should developments in that space warrant attention.
Ultimately the ILH will be driven by our vision and the specific interests of the Advisory Council members.
