We invite you to a discussion between two professionals with visions on the urgent issues facing us today.

They are a man and a woman from different countries and fields - technical and humanitarian, artificial intelligence and theatre and film. One of them is developing AI systems and creating the new reality; the other one is exploring human passions and dilemmas in her performances and documentary films.

How do we combine Greek tragedy and the robots of the future? Will our participants have contrasting views? How do they perceive the world of tomorrow?
