The latest novel by the journalist and political analyst Nativel Preciado is an ode to nature, to the lessons it teaches us, to the African continent and to the elephants, for which she feels a great love. El silencio de los elefantes rose with the Azorín Novel Prize in its latest edition. ABC, Interviú , Tiempo are some of the printed medi in which she has developed her journalistic career, which also has a long trajectory in radio and television. She is currently a collaborator at Los Desayunos de TVE and El debate de La I, in public television, and in Al rojo vivo or La Sexta Noche at La Sexta. Her first literary publications are part of the memoir genre, but later on she has been more inclined towards the novel. With her first novel, El egoísta, she was shortlisted for the Planeta Prize. She then published Bodas de plata, Llegó el tiempo de las cerezas, Canta solo para mí (Fernando Lara Prize) or El Nobel y la corista.

Nativel Preciado will talk to Javier Ors, head of Culture at La Razón.

Event 17

Nerea Luis Mingueza and Francesca Bria in conversation with Miquel Molina

Technological humanism against the excesses of artificial intelligence

Venue: Espacio Fundación Telefónica. Madrid
Read more

The dizzying progress of technology has boosted social well-being and favoured economic development, but it is also infringing on rights that, until recently, we viewed as inviolable. A biased use of artificial intelligence, facial recognition and robotics can increase inequalities and invade citizen privacy. This concern has given rise to a critical current that can be defined as “technological humanism”. The question is, is there still time to correct the undesirable effects of technological development?

This panel will consist of Nerea Luis Mingueza, Doctor of Artificial Intelligence and holder of a Medal of the Order of Civil Merit; and Francesca Bria, President of the Fondo Nazionale Innovazione and Member of the Board of the New European Bauhaus. The debate will be moderated by Miquel Molina, Assistant Editor of La Vanguardia and writer.

Presented by María Sheila Cremaschi, MBE, Director of Hay Festival Segovia.
