The Prediction machine is a documentary about the work done in our lab, made by Marleine van der Werf in collaboration with Floris de Lange. It was an opening film at last year’s Inscience festival. Recently it premiered internationally at Imagine Science festival in New York and the next stop will be the festival du Pariscience in Paris.

 

“the short documentary ‘The Prediction Machine’ focuses on the research of acclaimed Dutch Professor Floris de Lange. In his ‘Predictive brain lab’ he explores what predictions do with our perception. Inspired by the film ‘The Blade Runner’ in his teens, de Lange became interested in the human brain and the question of whether you could reproduce it. But when he realised that no one has ever succeeded to create artificial intelligence that can perceive as well as humans do, the first step in his research became to understand our brain.”
