DR. COSSA and DR MARIVATE: How are you working to build Cosmo-uBuntu beyond the African continent.
Adanna Jones
02:20:11
Great Question @Ama about how the body is participating in communicating and informing AI..
Webinar Attendee
02:21:17
so @ama this returns to the original questions bringing us together . should people who despise us be participating in our movement
Webinar Attendee
02:21:58
I wonder what this means for "touch improvisation"?
Adanna Jones
02:22:09
Great inquiry … ask that in the Q & A sections so that the panelists can see it
ITU Chat and Q&A
02:22:19
Thank you for your questions. Please submit them in the Q&A tab.
Tawanda
02:22:56
Dr. BERRY & DR. MARIVATE: how do we categorize African languages as "major" or "minor". And how might we translate from say Swahili to Xhosa without passing through a node language like English?
Kekeli Nuviadenu
02:24:19
Thanks so much for all of your presentations! Very impressive! Any explorations of nonverbal communication/behaviors? Audience simulations?
Tawanda
02:24:28
DR. Berry: How does bilingualism/multi-lingualism impair metacognition?

Great point. Language and Linguistics include culture and history and many other concepts that are embedded.
Femi
02:30:38
Massive point
Adanna Jones
02:30:41
100% Jose!!! I was thinking the same thing.
Adanna Jones
02:30:51
Thank you for saying that!!!
Webinar Attendee
02:31:52
ngugi definitely talks to this in "decolonising the mind" and "moving the centre"
Carol Benson
02:32:40
Obrigada José, muito boa resposta à questão das línguas oficiais. I refuse to use the terms “lusophone,” “francophone” etc. Vukosi is giving me hope that those colonial languages will not forever be the “nodes.” Good point about the language FAMILIES. I would refer to the Bantu language continuum… :>)

I think the person was trying to ask if potential benefits or innovations created through that modernist/individualist thought might be compromised if one imposes the cosmo-ubuntu philosophy

I think the person was trying to ask if potential benefits or innovations created through that modernist/individualist thought might be compromised if one imposes the cosmo-ubuntu philosophy - It is to understand the the uniqueness of the individual is inextricably linked to the collective. They are one and the same family,
