Convergence: Information, evolution, and intelligent design

25 March, 2015 @ 7:00 pm

£8

The concept of information is fundamental to all areas of science, and ubiquitous in daily life in the Internet Age. However, it is still not well understood despite being recognised for more than 40 years. In this talk, Daniel Dennett will explore steps towards a unified theory of information, through common threads in evolution, learning, and engineering.

This event will be the first in a series on the theme of ‘Convergence’, exploring the links between neuroscience, philosophy and artificial intelligence. Look out for more events later in the year.
