Du robot à l’IA : quand la science-fiction nous parle de notre humanité

@ VOL 10 ON AUG 31, 2019

Ma présentation visera à montrer comment la science-fiction, depuis le début du XXe siècle, s’ingénie à inventer des images pour réfléchir, comme dans un miroir, le portrait, pas toujours glorieux, de ce que nous faisons subir à notre humanité. Des robots aux intelligences artificielles, en passant par les cyborgs, venez contempler les reflets ambigus de nos visages de plus en plus numériques…

PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 14

PechaKucha Night in Buenos Aires Vol. 14 was held last week at the Ciudad Cultural Konex, enjoying an amazing turnout of close to 600 attendees. Organizer May Groppo fills us in on the night that was. The night started with DJ Villa Diamante welcoming puzzled guests who received cardboard 3D glasses on the door. Volume 14 in Buenos Aires was up to something, and packed (around 600 people). Mandetta (our male host in a dress as usual) opened the event with the cellphone-drawing-in-the-air warm up (since we saw PKN Denver's pics we couldn't resist). The first presentation was from Schwerpunkt and was a 3D experience. It then was then followed by Noavestruz, and then right away by Collage Lab with Nase from Amsterdam and his graffiti and his lovely girlfriend translating the whole speech (love is in the air). Zkysky is a design studio that has been on the market for 20 years now but decided not to show its work and instead shared their daily inspiration. Mariano Sigman is a scientist who studies the brain (neuroscience) and he bewildered us with his findings in such a simple and funny way that left everybody wanting for more. Picnic closed the first part with their home decor ideas and excellent taste. After the break with lots of chatting and drinks, it was time for the NGO of the night, Amartya, with its volunteering projects. Candelaria from Maldón Entertainment narrated her passion for board games and how she was planning for their come back -- amazing story. Pepe Monje and Bobby Flores (celebrities in music and tv) decided to improvise onstage and read an expert from a play they did together while sharing family pictures. ZZK Records made us proud, describing its foray into the international music scene with their mash-ups and cumbia electronica mixtapes. The last presenter was Franco Fasoli (jazz) who showed his street art together with his new more traditional art. See you in October with more creative, weird, funky, funny, and smart people onstage!

Considering our affinity for the number 20 -- you know, that whole "20 images x 20 seconds" thing -- it's always a joy to see one of the PechaKucha cities reach Vol. 20, and the latest city to do so is Buenos Aires, and that event will happen tomorrow (April 26) at Ciudad Cultural Konex. See the list of presenters on the official event page, and on the lovely flyer above. Take note that this is also an Inspire Japan-related event, and so donations will be accepted.
