Better Science Through Art

CCSL sponsors the coming of two big names of Computer Science to Brazil. They will be here next week (March 30th, 31th), at the Event “Better Science Through Art” with Joe Yoder and Richard Gabriel. The event will be awesome and FREE!

Common wisdom says that science and art are entirely different beasts; moreover, a similar source of wisdom tells us that science is valuable to society while art is a luxury. Why else would schools drop art from their curricula over the past 20 years? But artists and scientists approach their work in similar if not identical ways.

In this event, Richard P. Gabriel and Joe Yoder, two big names of Computer Science, bring us details about why science and art should walk together in the same path, taking students and professors to think about the universities current research and work method.

Richard will give a talk about Designed as Designer – why conceptual integrity arises not (simply) from one mind or from a small number of agreeing resonant minds, but from sometimes hidden co-authors and the things designed themselves. Joe will also talk “When Should You Consider Meta-Architectures? and the use of Meta to Scale”

The event is FREE and will be on March 30th and 31th – from 2pm at no IME-USP, Rua do Matão, 1000 – Giglioli room
