However, by the end of 1909, Cummings was able to successfully create an organization devoted to the clandestine collection of foreign intelligence (Jeffery, 2010). As much as the agency was Cummings brainchild, the wheels starting to spin early in 1909 when a sub-committee was put together to outline a plan to get Great Britain back into the intelligence collection business....   [tags: UK secret service, cold war era]

Dualism and Artificial Intelligence

- Mind-body dualism is usually seen as the central issue in philosophy of the mind. The problem with mind-body dualism is that it is unknown whether the mind really is a separate entity from the human body as Descartes states in his argument, or whether the mind is the brain itself. Descartes believed that in a person existed two major components, the physical body and the nonphysical body which was called the mind or soul. As a scientist, Descartes believed in mechanical theories of matter, however, he was also very religious and did not believe people could merely be mechanical creatures that ran like “clockwork.” And so, it was Descartes who argued that the mind directed thoughts....   [tags: philosophy essays]

Business Intelligence and Stakeholders

- INTRODUCTION Business Intelligence refers to the way in which companies collect and organise raw data, and then transform this raw data into something meaningful. The transformation and analysation of this data is generally achieved throughout the use of software with systems such as SAP or Cognos (Howson, 2010). BI is important as it’s helpful in streamlining and making certain tasks easier within a business setting, overall achieving smoother operations. Whilst this is the general process of BI, it is also important to consider who influences this process and how it is influenced and the way in which this affects the overall BI model within an organisation....   [tags: meaningful data, transformation]

Defining Intelligence

- Intelligence can be defined in several ways. Intelligence is a combination of abilities for example recognizing reality, adjusting to evolving conditions, problem solving, and knowledge. One of the most important aspects of intelligence is an organism being able to familiarize oneself with the environment. The testing of intelligence is to analyze the way an individual thinks and the way he or she reasons, not to understand the how much information he or she as obtained. The problem that arises is the questions do not mean the same thing in every culture, so it becomes difficult to analyze the intelligence of more than one culture with the use of the same test....   [tags: comprehend, analytical, skills]

Emotional Intelligence

- In our everyday lives, we are constantly interacting with other individuals. These interactions have an effect on our emotions. We have to learn how to identify and deal with these emotions because they have a direct effect on how we deal with issues at work.

Multiple Intelligences

- Multiple Intelligences In Howard Gardner’s Frames of Mind, he proposes that there are seven main areas in which all people have special skills; he calls them intelligences. His research at Harvard University was in response to the work that Alfred Binet had done in France around 1900. Binet’s work led to the formation of an intelligence test; we are all familiar with the “intelligence quotient,” or “IQ,” the way that intelligence is measured on his test. This type of IQ test was used as the basis of another one with which most of us are familiar: the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), which is taken my most college-bound high school students....   [tags: Intelligence IQ Smart Intelligent Essays]
