Throughout the week, people working in the technological field will be able to attend a series of conferences and activities on the themes of intelligence artificial intelligence (Can A.I. become benevolent?), digital identity (Computer breaches, data leaks, how to secure our digital future?), or even the future of the world of work (Equal opportunities, school to work).
More than a hundred specialists from the industry will be there.
The The public will also have access to the exhibition ECO(systems) of hope, presented from Tuesday October 18 to Sunday October 30 at l'Antéisme. You will find technological works by Marcela Armas, Ælab and Rosalie Dumont Gagné, who explore the ecology and creative imaginations of the future.
