Return to the cult’ Evening in the heart of the matrix

From the Matrix to the Terminator: artificial intelligence through the eyes of experts

On April 7, 2022 from 20:30 at La Casemate, the public and experts plunged into the very heart of the matrix for an evening like no other! What do androids dream about? Can a robot cry? Can they ever replace us? Should we be afraid of artificial intelligence? The cult evening will tell about the great classics of films about artificial intelligence and robots!

Our First Expert of the Day, Damien Pellier, is Lecturer and Team Leader of Marvin, Artificial Intelligence Applied to Robotics and Intelligent Systems, at the Grenoble Information Laboratory (University of Grenoble-Alpes).

Alexandre Bretel, PhD student in the Ethics of Artificial Intelligence (Department of Ethics and IA – MAI) at the Grenoble Institute of Philosophy (UGA) and at the Paris 6 Computer Science Laboratory (Paris 6) has presented for us our life (the future) in the middle of AI.
