The talks:

  • 21 December 2019: Artificial intelligence in questions

Talk given by Nicolas Roussel, Director of the Inria Bordeaux-South-West research centre

From 4 to 6 pm in the auditorium

From the creation of artificial intelligence to the applications that now shape our everyday lives, Nicolas Roussel will review the essence of AI, presenting its history and questioning its place in society. He will introduce the concept of machine learning to try and give better understanding of the digital transformation that is impacting our personal and professional lives.

  • 5 February 2020: What is cryptology for?

Talk given by Damien Robert, researcher and member of the LFANT project team

From 4 to 6 pm in the "Espace Actualité"

After giving an overview of the historic context of cryptology, the science of secrecy, Damien Robert will present its three modern principles: encryption, authentication and integrity. Bitcoin, electronic voting, the cloud: just some of the applications that we all know, but what lies behind them? The talk will offer insights into the challenges facing this discipline (possible attacks, proof of security) and the vulnerability of current protocols.
