ROBOTS, ROBOTICS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
“Artificial intelligence could be The most important event of history
of our civiLization “. N ° 210 – July / August 2018
Pronounced by the astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, this phrase challenges and, like any subject of innovation, raises his lot of hopes and fears. Artificial intelligence
(IA) is at the heart of current technological, economic and social debates. Again
recently publicized through the Villani reports and the academy of technologies,
the IA is without a doubt the most prominent digital theme because it is about to
profoundly modify many areas of activity.
For the general public, IA (invisible digital object) and robotics (palpable physical object)
are intimately linked. The robots have thus become the ideal allegory of
Artificial Intelligence They give the impression of becoming “intelligent”
as soon as their designer integrates high-level algorithms. interest
to AI and robots is to understand the issues and fantasies they
transport, from work to health through economics and religion.
This is the typical example where modern innovation confronts society.
We wished to give the floor to experts in the field, so that they
explain their daily lives, the problems they confront each other, while we

namely human intelligence. Véronique Aubergé explains us how to make intelligence
artifical is “to make calculable something that is not and therefore reduce the world”.
If the physical sciences are two thousand years old, the artificial intelligence is barely sixty, and the human sciences like psychology a few hundred. We are
so today in the infancy of artificial intelligence.
