"Algorithms: Thinking against your brain" by Etienne Klein, Philosopher, Physicist, and Director of Research at The CEA

Ready for IT Etienne Klein

For the philosopher, the observation of the phenomena that surround us goes against the physical laws that govern them. Which, without going back to Galileo, can lead to ignorance and even intolerance.

During this keynote, Etienne Klein will show that we must therefore think against our brain, that is to say bring paradox, contradiction if we want to set our thinking in motion and therefore develop a critical mind. This will lead him to draw a parallel with the algorithms and the way of processing data which today offer us a vision that we can consider comfortable or even reassuring, but which is devoid of a critical mind and does not lead to intellectual questioning.
