INC Day 2018 : Collective Brains
The fifth edition of the INC DAY, was organized in partnership with the BME-Paris master program, will be devoted to the theme : Collective Brains. It will explore the collective dynamics of the brain and collective intelligence in animal societies and robot swarms.
Ten french and foreign researchers will present their latest work on the topic on Friday October 12 at the headquarters of Paris Descartes University (12 rue de l’Ecole de Médecine, 75006 Paris).
The day was open to the whole scientific community without registration or admission fees.
An associated public event in French on Collective intelligence in the Human society entitled « Plus intelligents ensemble? » has taken place at the Faculty of Fundamental and Biomedical Sciences (45 rue des Saints-Pères, 75006 Paris) on Monday October 8 with the participation of Gérald Bronner (Paris Diderot) and Sophie Pène (Paris Descartes).
