(Archive) Over Intelligentie

This project was part of DDW 2023

Every day at 3 PM Waag Futurelab dives into a different form of intelligence with different experts in the speaker programme 'About Intelligence'.

About the programme

We need to talk about intelligence. Developments around artificial intelligence seem to be happening at lightning speed. So fast, in fact, that some speak of a true revolution. AI would be able to do everything better than humans in the future and therefore pose an existential threat. With that assumption, the technology disciples at Waag Futurelab set to work. What is intelligence anyway?

The more abstract the knowledge, the more intelligent, is often the assumption. But intelligence is much more diverse. For instance, what about our emotional and social intelligence? Can algorithms be intelligent? Come into the Futuredome at Waag Futurelab and broaden your view on intelligence. Find out what artificial and natural intelligences are, and why we need them all.
