This conversation focuses on the need to create alternative lenses through which comprehend our everchanging reality. Can AI help us make sense of this reality or maybe escape from it?

A six-part series of conversations with Alexandre Cadain, founder and CEO of Anima and AI activist, during the lockdown period of the Covid-19 crisis. We discussed a number of topics that are close to his body of work; creating real utopias by exploring positive artificial intelligence and imagination. 

Philip K. Dick: “Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.”
