Engineering Mindset for AI Enthusiasts
The definition of mindset is one's established set of attitudes that predetermine their responses to and interpretations of situations. Some believe that this is fixed; however, Carol Dweck's extensive research on the subject finds that one can change their mindset to a growth mindset. Growth mindset means believing that one's intelligence and skills can be grown with training, learning, effort, and practice. These Mindset Trainings will cover the theory and practice of the dialectical nature of mindset, including: emotions and logic, learning skills, values and believes, biases, mindfulness, and care for the self and others. This includes scientifically proven techniques that effectively improve achievement and success for individuals and groups.
