Within the activities held on the occasion of the 24th edition of Science Week in Catalonia, yesterday 13 November 2019, the Institute of Space Studies of Catalonia (IEEC  — Institut d’Estudis Espacials de Catalunya) together with the Institute of Space Sciences (ICE-CSIC) and the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA-CSIC) organized a debate on artificial intelligence and space exploration. 

Entitled "Artificial intelligence and space exploration: from the Moon to Mars", the dialogue between the IEEC researcher at ICE-CSIC, Dr. Jordi Isern, and the IIIA-CSIC researcher, Dr. Ramón López de Mántaras, dealt with topics as current as the impact of artificial intelligence on interplanetary human spaceflight, as well as the ethical boundaries and implications for human beings. Moderated by journalist Núria Jar, the conversation took place at the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB).

The dialogue, designed for both a specialised and a general public, was attended by around fifty people, who showed great interest in the subject and made very positive comments.

Organised by the Fundació per a la Recerca i la Innovació (FCRi) and the Generalitat de Catalunya, the 24th edition of Science Week in Catalonia will host a range of activities dedicated to scientific dissemination: open days, exhibitions, talks, games and scientific workshops.
