How to teach computers to solve the Rubik’s Cube?
Can we teach computers to solve riddles? Can computers solve the Rubik’s Cube better and faster than any human? How to teach computers to think like humans?
On Saturday, 25th September, at 11:00, Inês Lynce, researcher and President of INESC-ID, and Full Professor at Técnico, will go live on Técnico facebook to answer these questions.
ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
“Explain it like I’m 5 – talks at Técnico for children and other curious people of all ages” is designed for young people, opening a door to get to know Técnico research and to ask our scientists a question- even at a distance. Older people can come as well, if the children let them. The talks take place on Saturdays live on Facebook and can be watched later.
