For the second year running, Hay Festival Segovia will visit Segovia Prison to deliver the workshop Minimal Autobiographies, led by Beltrán Gambier, founder and director of the magazine Intramuros, a leading publication in this genre. Over the magazine’s 27 years, it has been contributed to by prestigious writers, including Nobel Literature Prize winners such as Günter Grass, Herta Müller and Mo Yan. This is an opportunity for inmates to take part in an intellectual literary activity, supported by the Hay Festival, in which they can write an extract of their own autobiographies. Gambier is also a lawyer and author of several legal texts in areas including Penitentiary Administrative Law.
Gambier will give the workshop with Félix Losada, Intramuros writer and trustee, as well as with El País journalist Noelia Núñez.
Event in Spanish
In these changing times, it has become imperative to reflect on human creativity in a world in which artificial intelligences are also beginning to create. Hay Festival hosts a debate on the role that the humanities should play in the age of artificial intelligence and the intergenerational impact that it entails. In an conversation, moderated by journalist and author Marta Garcia-Aller, Nuria Oliver, a renowned scientist who co-founded and directs the ELLIS Alicante Foundation, an institute dedicated to exploring the impact of AI on humanity and John Maeda, a prominent American computer designer and engineer, known for his groundbreaking work at the intersection of technology, art, and the humanities who also holds the role of Vice President of Design and Artificial Intelligence at Microsoft, will delve into the imperative of AI, its impact on the humanities and its derivatives.
This conversation will be joined by two young people who are currently developing their studies in the field of technology: Teresa Lufuluabo, an orchestra conductor converted into a programmer thanks to Escuela 42 and its disruptive programming campus promoted in Spain by Fundación Telefónica, and Juan Heslop, a recent graduate in Data Science from IE University, winner of poetry and essay prizes from the IE Foundation, singer and digital analyst in a consulting firm.
Event with simultaneous translation from English to Spanish and vice versa.
