About the event

Combining information from the fields of Psychology, Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence, Kevin will explore the capacities of the mind, the brain and the best computers around to examine the limitations of each. He will pit the speed of computer calculations against the learning capacity of the brain and the mind’s ability to appreciate humour and sarcasm.

There is no doubt that the size of the collective knowledge of the internet outweighs that of any single human brain. Perhaps, though, size really doesn’t matter – it's what you can do with all that information that does.
