A series of four weekly radio shows will be recorded live by Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) at EPFL’s ArtLab in November. EPFL professors and external experts will debate key issues at the intersection of digitization and society, and members of the public are invited to attend. Topics will range from artificial intelligence, privacy and law, to art, culture and history.

All discussion will be in French.

The recordings are open to the public (upon registration) who will be able to take an active part in the discussions.

Broadcast RTS: on Espace 2 on Saturday from 5pm to 6pm and on La Première on Sunday from 8pm to 9pm.
