Saturday 21.4 at 4pm at Arkadia: ‘Are dead philosophers influencing Google’s Deep Mind?’ with the Biosophical Society

Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited by the Biosophical Society to a talk on ‘ Are dead philosophers influencing Google’s Deep Mind?’ on Saturday  21.4 at 4pm at Arkadia  (Nervanderinkatu 11)

In this session we’ll be discussing the relationship between AI, philosophy, and the body. The talk will give a general overview of some key concepts from the field of artificial intelligence, and draw some connections between some contemporary AI projects and philosophical concepts about the mind that may be influencing AI design.

For suggested readings for the discussion, visit the event page at


Warm regards,

The Biosophical Society is an informal discussion group centered around philosophical questions relating to organic systems. We are interested in understanding, developing, and exchanging ideas about life sciences and other systems of inquiry (including artistic and creative systems of inquiry) through the lens of philosophy. Our discussion group is open to all, and we encourage those with differing backgrounds and from all walks of life to join in and broaden the scope of our conversation.

We usually meet approximately every third Saturday of the month from 13.00-15.00. Our dates for the spring are March April 21st (from 16.00 -18:00), and May 19th. For more information on our discussion topics, contact to subscribe to email updates or find us on Facebook. We hope you can join us!
