“We have given you, O Adam, no visage proper to yourself, nor endowment properly your own, in order that whatever place, whatever form, whatever gifts you may, with premeditation, select, these same you may have and possess through your own judgement and decision […] We have made you a creature neither of heaven nor of earth, neither mortal nor immortal, in order that you may, as the free and proud shaper of your own being, fashion yourself in the form you may prefer.”
Oration on the Dignity of Man – Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

Artificial intelligence

published on 16 05 2018

Artificial intelligence (AI) was born between the 40s and 50s of the 20th century, as a computer discipline. One of its main founders was the British mathematician Alan Turing. Among his many contributions there is a test to discern if a machine shows intelligent behavior or not. To pass the test, it is necessary to have a certain general culture, common sense, empathy and compression capacity. But programming all these capabilities on machines is not a simple task.
The following spoke: Ramon López de Mántaras, director of the Research Institute in AI, CSIC; Ulises Cortés, professor at the Department of Computer Science, UPC; Carmen Caralps, Atia Cortés, from the Department of Computer Science, UPC, and Miquel Montero CEO and founder of Atomian.
