About the night class

As part of the exhibition The Valley by Fabrice Hyber, the Fondation Cartier invites Cyril Bonan, lawyer, and Laure Soulier, lecturer and researcher with the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics, to participate in the Voices of the Valley evening series. Within the exhibition spaces, the two guest speakers discuss the hypotheses proposed by Fabrice Hyber in his paintings before a live audience.

Over the course of this evening, Cyril Bonan and Laure Soulier will offer a definition of “Artificial Intelligence” and “deep learning”, while exposing the questions that such technology raises in terms of law, justice, and teaching. Referring to Hyber’s works like Incarnation, Inconnu.net, Nouvelle répartition du monde, and The Other Way, they will explore the notions of learning, humanity, and intelligence.

This live discussion will be broadcast simultaneously on the websites of the Fondation Cartier and *Duuu Radio, and in the form of podcasts via the main platforms.
