Science Café with Atiyah

Abel Prize winner Sir Michael Atiyah drew a full house at Café Rust in Oslo when British Council in Norway organized a Science Café in cooperation with the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.

"Man versus machine - the brain and the computer", was the topic the British Abel Laureate Sir Michael Atiyah chose for his lecture. He shared his thoughts on artificial intelligence and the relation between the human brain and computers with the guests at the café.

The meeting was chaired by BBC-journalist Quentin Cooper.
