ANGELS A human and artificial intelligence creation

What every leader, entrepreneur, professional or student should know about the impact of artificial intelligence. Gissel Velarde, PhD in Computer Science and Engineering, presents the book Era artificial. The event culminates with the premiere of Angeles orchestrated with intelligent algorithms. Renowned composers and researchers participate.


Gissel Velarde, composer and author of the book Artificial Era published in English by Oxford University Press, will talk about artificial and human intelligence, and how Angels, a cutting-edge production, was born. She will address the controversy about the impact of artificial intelligence on society and how to take advantage of technology in a highly automated world where innovation and creativity go hand in hand with technological progress. The orchestration of Angels was performed traditionally and with artificial intelligence by renowned arrangers and researchers from America, Europe and Asia, including Raquel Maldonado, Rui Yang, Mael Oudin, Francesco Maccarini, Florence Levé and Mathieu Giraud. Andrés Guzmán-Valdez conducts the Kronos Symphony Orchestra.
