Douglas Hofstadter in Bologna (10/06/2011)

For those who don't know him, Douglas Hofstadter is an American philosopher and scientist, best known for his book Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid, for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1980.

This is kind of a cult book for many, especially for those who are interested in Artificial Intelligence. When I heard Hofstadter was coming to Bologna to paticipate in a conference I knew I had to go and see him.

I shot some videos which will require some editing (volume is really low) and conversion. As soon as I get everything right I'll upload them.
