La Salle-URL participates in the Mobile Week Barcelona with dialogue 'Artificial Intelligence and Human Brain'

On Thursday February 23 will take place in La Salle Campus Barcelona-URL the dialogue 'Artificial Intelligence and Human Brain', within the series of conferences organized by Mobile World Capital for Mobile Week Barcelona. It is a program consisting of 10 consecutive talks during the week of February 20 on cultural, scientific, academic and social facilities in Barcelona. Each table will involve entrepreneurs, artists, scholars, thinkers, scientists and representatives of Mobile World Capital Barcelona to reflect on relevant issues. The dialogue will take place at La Salle, and will treat the story from the use of tools and the introduction of agriculture by our hominid ancestors until today's development of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Whether AI is the future of technology or not will be discussed, as well as about the dialogue between man and machine. How will AI change the world? Can a machine make decisions that affect lives? Can a machine feel or be smarter than a human brain? The debate will be moderated by Albert Saez, Deputy Director of El Periódico de Cataluña and PhD in Journalism by Ramon Llull University. Associate Professor at La Salle-URL Jordi Albó, Arcvi co-founder Josep Marc Mingot, Biotronic Art Studio Director Félix Vinyals, and writer and research professor Carme Torras will participate in the debate. Director of Institute for Research in Artificial Intelligence (IIIA-CSIC), Ramón López de Mántaras, will attend the dialogue as an advisory member.
