♦ Description : “Artificial intelligence can go beyond humans, and how education must make its revolution. Since the publication in 2011 of his first essay The death of death, how technomedicine will upset humanity, Laurent Alexandre has emerged as one of the most visionary analysts of technological revolutions.
It is now attacking Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the dizzying changes it will trigger in our lifestyles, and especially in our conception of education. On the one hand, AI is progressing much faster than any advanced prognosis: the AI learning speed is multiplied by 100 each year. It takes thirty years to train an engineer or a radiologist, a few hours to educate an AI!
On the other hand, a school that has not changed for 250 years, which forms the trades of yesterday and has not incorporated the inevitable upheaval that AI will provoke in the job market. How to make our biological brains resistant to AI and remain complementary? How will our children be competitive against AI? How will education, not totally Darwinian, find its place next to silicon brains boosted by the almost infinite means of GAFA and other giants American and Chinese?
Which scenarios will Humanity have to choose? Should we accept the transhumanist vertigo that biologically “upgrades” us but keeps us Man? Merge with AI by becoming cyborgs? Prohibit or severely limit AI?
It is to this fundamental and fascinating reflection that Laurent Alexandre invites us.”
“Laurent Alexandre – is a surgeon graduated from HEC and ENA. Creator of several companies, he sold the Doctissimo medical site in 2008. He is now head of DNAVision, the European leader in genetics and genomics. His essay, The death of death has provoked many debates in the media.
Laurent Alexandre is a surgeon specialized in urology but also a novelist and comic book writer. After 11 years of medical school, Laurent Alexandre goes on Sciences Po and HEC, then the ENA. He will study economics and administration driven by a desire: to understand the functioning of the public service and the health system, which the medical profession is too little interested in him. His motivation? That “doctors participate in the system instead of being the toys of the technosctructure”
If Doctissimo.fr welcomes today nearly 8 million unique visitors per month, it is partly thanks to the determination of its founder, Laurent Alexandre. In the early 1990s, this surgeon and urologist training already glimpses the importance that can take the Internet. In the 1990s, he created half a dozen health-related start-ups. In 1995, Laurent Alexandre continued his project by launching Medcost, which designs medical IT services.
With Claude Malhuret, former director of Doctors Without Borders and young computer scientists, they create a health information portal this time turned to the general public. Doctissimo.fr is launched in May 2000. Besides the information certified by doctors on all types of pathologies, Laurent Alexandre sees a request for discussion between patients. Doctissimo and Medcost survived the bursting of the Internet bubble. In 2008, Laurent Alexandre decides to hand over the management of Doctissimo. He sells the company to the Lagardère group. Since 2008, he is chairman and majority shareholder of DNAVision, a Belgian SME specialized in gene research and development. In 2011, he wrote “The Death of Death” (JC Lattès).”
