Nuit des Idees 2020 – Alive!

On Thursday 30 January, Waterstones in The Galleries is taking part in the global event Night of Ideas.

Night of Ideas

Night of Ideas is a worldwide event. For its fourth year, the theme is “Alive!”. What does being alive mean today? Some say we’re on the brink of extinction. Some say we can build a new man. At a time when nature is threatened and technology seems all powerful, we’d like to question, collectively, the borders of our humanity and rethink what was once taken for granted.

This event will be conducted in French for the first part, and in English for the second. You are welcome to both or either.

7.00 pm in French: Joseph Lanoux: Intelligence Artificielle

8.00 pm in English: Alan Winfield: Ethics and Robotics
