PRESENTATION

“Memories of Future Past: The Rise of the Machines” (EN)

In a not so distant future, machines will lead the way. They will provide guidance and will even have their own language -that we will not understand- to deal with situations. They will decide what is best for us… and for them. This is the era not for an evolution but for a re-evolution where machines will declare to have rights and govern a great deal of our digital (and physical?) life. We are living through times when we have to present questions about the limits of using bots, the risk perimeter of artificial intelligence and the challenges of machine learning. In that closer-than-we-think time, we have the unique opportunity to ask the right questions to the right individual… since, soon, those questions will be answered by a machine. Do you think that those machines would like to be turned off? Don’t you think that they will fight it? This is a new epoch: The Rise of the Machines.
