From Plato to Steve Jobs

Back to our projects

The history of artificial intelligence did not start 80 years ago with the construction of the first computer. To program or simulate thought, one must indeed be able to understand, disassemble, and decompose it. To be able to code a reflection, one must first be able to decode it, and this analysis already existed in antiquity. The principles, laws and concepts that underlie computer science today are rooted in a time when mathematics and logic developed each other around their iconic thinker, respectively Plato and Aristotle. Discover the story written by Luc de Brabandere that we illustrated and animated.
