Hollywood has shown it a zillion times: From Jonny Five to Ex Machina’s Artificial Intelligence AVA to WALL-E and EVE...future AI will be emotionally intelligent and can indeed be quite emotional. But where are we on that, and will it ever become a reality?

Björn Schuller’s ‘Can A.I. have Emotions?’ talk will share with you latest insights into the state of “Affective Computing” ... the science behind computers and emotions. Largely unnoticed by the public, machines have indeed started to do their homework on emotions, recently creating a quite vibrant start-up scene around the topic. Based on latest competitions in this exciting field, you will be surprised to learn what machines can already sense from your voice, face, and physiology about your affective state. You’ll also see how machines can these days react to emotions, and even hear real-life moving stories about computers and robots successfully teaching autistic children about emotions and many other applications slowly becoming a reality. But can machines actually have emotions? Facts will be first, but prepare also to get absorbed into a science-driven discussion on what Artificial Emotional Intelligence ultimately might evolve into, and whether we need to be afraid or euphoric about it.

Björn gained his doctorate and state doctorate in electrical engineering and information technology from the Technical University of Munich on topics mainly around computers and emotion recognition before joining Imperial College London, where he currently is a Reader in Machine Learning. His academic journey brought him to several further places over the years including the German universities of Augsburg and Passau as Full Professor, China’s Harbin and Swiss Geneva as Visiting Professor, besides the CNRS near Paris, and Graz. His entrepreneurial side is reflected by being a CEO of the Audio Intelligence company audEERING. He is co-author of 5 books, and more than 500 scientific contributions on the topic, President-Emeritus of the Association for the Advancement of Affective Computing, Editor in Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing, and occasionally emotional himself.

Love’s been around a long time. As an evolutionary anthropologist Dr. Anna Machin is fascinated by what makes us fall in love and what keeps us there.

In this talk she will use the results of cutting edge research from the fields of neuroscience, genetics, evolutionary theory and psychology to peel back the levels of explanation to reveal what we know about human love.

Why do we need love in our lives? How can love be a source of such intense euphoria but at the same time be so incredibly painful? Why are some people better at staying in relationships than others? How come short, bald millionaires can pull supermodels? And is it really the case that love is addictive?

She will explain how a wonderful cocktail of chemicals motivates us to form relationships, how a complex mix of our genetics and psychology combine to influence how we feel when we are in love and how neuroscience may be able to prove that love truly is blind.

Juju's Presents: ACT
Actor- Chorus- Text Training

Juju's proudly presents the ACT training program, in collaboration with Moon Fool Theatre Company.

The ACT training workshops, developed and run by Moon Fool founder and Director Anna-Helena McLean, provide actors with drop in sessions, regular training, and the opportunity to engage in intensive workshops and residencies before participating in in-house productions at Juju's.

This approach to theatre effectively combines the native folkloric, esoteric, classical and contemporary in a comprehensive, accessible and mind-blowing way.

'Company' ethos is encouraged in participants, with trust, mutuality, and a sense of communality emerging through collective practice.

The method: ACT is a learned method of interweaving music, movement, poetry, and story in any given spatial location. The training exercises in musicality and physicality incorporate:
-  Gardzienice Company methodology
-  Acrobatic partner and counterbalance techniques
-  The art of gesture with hand, body and chorus
-  Polyphonic singing of indigenous folk and gypsy music from across the Globe, as well as original composition
-  Dynamic speech work with physically charged interpretation

The ACT ensemble is currently developing a performance for this year's East London Fringe Festival. More details to be announced soon.

" A world class theatre creator /  Director with an uncanny ability to synthesize her music and physical actor training into full out, lush production." -  Kristen Schmidt, Founding Director, Walkabout Theatre, Chicago

" Moon Fool has fused together a unique theatrical practice that is proven ground-breaking and world class" -  Dexter Bullard, Head of Graduate Acting, The Theatre School, DePaul University

" Ensemble work at its very best" -  Kevin Green, New City Stage
