5 @ Tech is a series of discussions complementary to the immersive exhibitions presented by Phi. On this occasion, the >HUM(AI)N exhibition will host a conversation under the theme The human limits of artificial intelligence as a creative tool, in collaboration with Ubisoft.

Preceded by a free visit of the exhibition, with bar service, this evening is limited to only 40 attendees and open to anyone with an interest in new forms of storytelling in the digital age. Just like the previous 5 @ Tech evenings, the public will have the opportunity to connect with some key players on Montreal’s cultural, creative and technological stage.
