The so-called father of modern computing, the mathematician Alan Turing, declared in a 1950 article that artificial intelligence would exist when we are no longer able to distinguish between a human being and a computer program in a blindfolded conversation. Research into neural networks intensified in the 1990s, based on the imitation of the behaviour of the human brain, and at present large computer and telecommunications companies are implementing applications based on this model, such as voice or facial recognition applications, autonomous vehicles and virtual personal assistants, such as Cortana and Siri.

Turing’s prophecy is seemingly increasingly closer and, yet, many questions arise about the consequences of the implementation of this technology in society: Is artificial intelligence capable of making decisions for itself in risky circumstances such as economic, sanitary or military situations? Is it possible to develop ethical behaviour in artificial beings based on existing models? Are there robots capable of interpreting human emotions? Responding to and discussing some of these questions will be our guests, the Director of Data Science at Vodafone, Nuria Oliver and Ramón López de Mántaras, Director of the Instituto de Investigación en Inteligencia Artificial (IIA) at the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC).

A debate format in which, once a month, on a Monday at 7:30 pm, leading experts analyse important issues that make up today’s social reality with the journalists Antonio San José and Íñigo Alfonso. Old and New Politics, Inequality, the Internet, China's Leadership or Brexit have been several of the issues involved.

The presenters put some of the audience’s questions to the guests. Please send your suggestions to:
