Science and conscience among the Shadoks, conference of the 17th of September 2019

A conference by Gérard Berry

Computer scientist, professor emeritus at the College de France, member of the Academy of Sciences, Academy of Technology, laureate of the CNRS gold medal.

The name of Shadoks is known throughout France, but not the details of their strange existence. After having gossiped about their birth and their presence in the universe, we will study the immense progress of their science, which goes from the elementary probabilities to the understanding of the phenomenon of gravitation, via the systems of numeration, the theory of the sets and that of transport. We will see how modern imagery has made it possible to understand the original functioning of their brain, which has led to a form of culture from which we can draw a lot if we look at it more closely.
