Thursday the 16th from 5 to 6PM
At the  French Institute

What is AI? Which are its applications? Are we all concerned by AI? If so, how? A scientist and an artist will help us answering to those basic, yet fundamental questions related to our use and understanding of artificial intelligence (AI). A short, generic definition of AI will be followed by an interactive quiz on AI applications, including machine translation. After the event, the participants will be invited to go deeper into AI by attending the conference on machine translation at the Goethe Institut .
The IFF in cooperation with Aalto Digi Platform will host an exhibition on AI open to the public at 16h30

Please note the free lecture is in English !
