Søren Brier is defending his doctoral thesis "Cybersemiotics - Why information is not enough"

It is difficult to be intelligent without the ability to make sense

“The computer plays a more and more important part in our everyday lives despite the fact that they operate on a sort of intelligence that does not have the ability create meaning. This paradox is causing great problems with the implementation of computers in human settings such as works places”, says Søren Brier, Associated Professor, Ph.D., CBS.

In his doctoral thesis “Cybersemiotics – Why information is not enough”, Søren Brier diagnoses problems in the correlation between humans and the computer as an expression of two very different approaches to knowledge and rationality that seem difficult to unite. In an attempt to dig deeper into the scientific understanding of cognition, intelligence and communication between human, machine and organizations, he develops Cybersemiotics.

Cybersemiotics is a trans-disciplinary framework for technology and information science on the one hand (via cybernetics) and the human’s complex knowledge of language, perception, communication and learning on the other hand (via semiotics). Cybernetics + semiotics = Cybersemiotics.
