035 - Information, Evolution, and intelligent Design - With Daniel Dennett

Description

Daniel Dennett explores the first steps towards a unified theory of  information, through common threads in the convergence of evolution,  learning, and engineering. The concept of information is fundamental to all areas of science, and  ubiquitous in daily life in the Internet Age. However, it is still not  well understood despite being recognised for more than 40 years. In this  talk, Daniel Dennett explores steps towards a unified theory of  information, through common threads in evolution, learning, and  engineering.   This event was the first in a series on the theme of 'Convergence',  exploring the links between neuroscience, philosophy and artificial  intelligence.  Daniel Dennett is known as one the most important philosophers of our  time, with controversial and thought-provoking arguments about human  consciousness, free will, and human evolution.  He is also a writer and cognitive scientist, using neuroscience,  linguistics, artificial intelligence, computer science, and psychology  to inform his philosophy, particularly his philosophies relating to  evolutionary biology and cognitive science.
