Conference “Neuroscience et IA”

Wednesday 22 May / 18:00

Venue : Cap Sciences (conference in french)

As part of the Société des neurosciences theme days

Today’s fantasies associated with artificial intelligence (AI) have their origins in science fiction (SF). Long before there was any talk of AI, long before Alan Turing’s discoveries in the 1950s, robots (from the Czech “robota” meaning chore) had already invaded SF literature. Since then, fictional representations of AI have
have evolved, inspired by the scientific advances of the time. For example, AI is no longer depicted as a giant, centralized, omnipotent computer, but rather as an impalpable entity invading the world. This is a real-life situation, as AIs are now everywhere (personal assistants, cars, telephones, etc.). During this conference, we’ll be talking to specialists in literature, neuroscience, artificial intelligence and the techo-scientific imagination, in an attempt to untangle science from fiction.
