|Life and Artificial Life: Who's who? Should it matter?|
But how is it that fiction can help us answer such questions? After all, fiction represents a departure from reality. What is it about it that we find useful? In this lunch chat, we'll welcome Professor Felipe Perrone from the Computer Science Department (and organizer of the "Blade Runner" event) as our guest to help us think through some of these issues — in particular concerning science fiction connected with artificial intelligence and novel technologies.
Please join us for what promises to be a lively and informal discussion. As usual, pizza and salad will be served. Hope to see you there.
