On the occasion of its twenty year anniversary, the Maison du Livre (House of the Book) questions the future! What future do we want and will we have the choice? The starting point will be to note a simultaneous movement, even converging, of hybridization between the man and the machine: the human would tend to be machinized, while the machine would be humanized. Artificial intelligence, robotics and algorithms on one side; prostheses, implants, genome interventions and digitization of the organs of the other. Will we come to abolish the distinction between living and non-living? Is the human being fully digitizable? The task will be to share the real, fiction, mythology and smoke.
In this context, Jacques Urbanska (project manager @ Transcultures) will lead a round table discussion about arts/science intersections, with Philippe Boisnard (digital artist, writer), Eric Minh Cuong Castaing (choregrapher), Lorena Jouven (dancer), Thomas Peyruse (robotics engineer)
