"Science and Wine" is the occasion through which research staff of the Timișoara Politechnica University will present science in all its beauty to those who are eager to find out more. After participating in storytelling workshops and a mentoring process, the researchers will explain concepts in their field of activity in a way that the non-specialist public can understand.
This event brings it to the public on university professor Călin Popa, researcher at the Faculty of Automation and Computers. His field of research is Artificial Intelligence through deep learning models, with focus on autonomous systems.
What is behind the programs that we name intelligent? Are they conscious? How do they function?
Following this presentation, participants are invited to participate in a light discussion on the topic.
To create a unique experience, the discussions will be accompanied by a wine tasting. The wines are offered by Cramele Recaș, and the selection is specially designed for each individual theme.
The project is part of the national cultural programme "Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in 2023" and is funded through the Grow Timișoara 2023 programme, implemented by the Center for Projects Timișoara, with funds allocated from the state budget, through the budget of the Ministry of Culture.
