The summer series of Book Club meetings kicks off at 2 p.m. on 29 May in VDNH's Book Pavilion. Everyone's invited to check out new popular science books in 'quick date' format. Attendance is free, subject to prior registration on the website.
Visitors at the Book Pavilion will find out about one of the latest theories on consciousness, how artificial intelligence works and the role of man in the era of algorithms.
The meeting will be organised in a 'quick date' format: visitors sit at five desks in the reading room of the Book Pavilion while specialists tell them about the books, one per desk. Listeners are allowed 10 minutes per book, then they move to another desk. The listeners end up each becoming acquainted with five quasi-scientific books by renowned foreign authors in 50 minutes.
