CONFERENCES

(FRENCH ONLY)

Fun and interactive conferences on daring subjects.

NATURAL STUPIDITY

In the era of artificial intelligence

We talk a lot about artificial intelligence, but little about natural stupidity. However, we are all a little affected!


By our cognitive biases, by the short cuts that our brain likes to take, we are all at risk of falling into an irrational belief, of making bad choices, of adhering to dubious conspiracy theories, of putting up resistance to science .

 

In a playful and daring tone, the conference exposes the strengths and weaknesses of the scientific method as a way of understanding the world, as well as the faults of our brain, evolved to survive in knowledge. Some avenues are explored to sharpen your critical mind and to circumvent the flaws of our thinking and ultimately, make better decisions.
