The Intelligence of Babel, Dialogues between Literature and Science

Within the framework of the “Dialogues between Literature and Science” the Sony Computer Science Laboratories in Rome proudly presents “The Intelligence of Babel”. The second event of the “Dialogues” will take place on February 27th and it will be dedicated to Jorge Luis Borges and in particular to his story titled “The Library of Babel”, first appearing in 1941 in the collection “The Garden of Forking Paths” and then in 1944 within the volume “Ficciones”.

The event will start from Borges’ story to explore, through his great philosophical provocations and literary suggestions, the connections with the human mind and its famous artificial simulacrum. Sony CSL – Rome is particularly interested in these relationships not only to enhance the scientific understanding of the basic mechanisms of artificial minds, but above all to better understand the dynamics that characterize human creativity and their relationships with mathematical theories of innovation.

Alongside Alessandro Londei, researcher from Sony CSL – Rome and an expert in artificial intelligence, we will host Alessandra Ghezzani, professor of Hispanic-American language and literature at the University of Pisa, as well as an expert on the author, and Silvano Tagliagambe, philosopher of science. We will also be accompanied by the readings and moderation of Manuela Cherubini, actress, director, and expert in outreach. 

The event is open to public through the registration at this link. Entrance from Piazza del Viminale 1, Rome.
