before the secret police tried to seize their passports they met up with alfred in switzerland the family later moved to paris and finally settled in london in 1035. her wrote when hitler stole pink rabbit which became the 1st book in a trilogy to try to explain to her children what her own childhood had been like. but it was published as west germany was just starting to come to terms with its nazi past and the book ended up being read by generations of german schoolchildren it was published. i think in 74 at a time when the germans. hadn't really. to talk to their children about the poss that obviously it was difficult. this wasn't even there because. nothing awful happened to us
and you know they had to feed it to school just part of the kingdom and then they had to write. me about that because i hated to i thought also simple sites that i thought you should just need to and the ethicist. to discourage went on to publish more than 30 books including a beloved series based on her family's can. she recently said that her greatest fear was not being able to work and indeed far from slowing down in old age she kept on writing and drawing. at the time of her death she had begun promoting her next book due out in june. what a wonderful lady and working to the end but new book by the way is cold the curse of the school rabbit there's also going to be a movie out later this year when it stole pink rabbit. now take a look at this this is a piece created by walt banana
a multimedia company based here in berlin what you are watching is called how 2045 and rob the made telling you more about it let's talk to the founder and creative director of wells benet and the man you actually see dancing there because he's here with me in the studio chris you know cat better known as being no thank you for joining it was the 1st of all briefly tell us how that piece came about it is a piece about. man and completely devoted to the buyer and so we've magine ing how could it look like 2045 in accelerated future this is really 45 in the future yeah now you're a computer scientist and the choreographer that is a fascinating and interesting combination how did that come about i think i started both just. playing as a child i learned to code for my mother 1002 that i was just playing around at the
same time. to germany with the world came down and i was directly into this very inclusive close shelf just space. ok. let's talk about our sufficient intelligence because i know that fascinates you now and we've got a recent piece of code now says which is and i quote artificial intelligence reflecting on its own existence that sounds quite spooky ai looking at itself which would you say that yes i look at it i think i would say that it isn't a groom is able to describe what it sees in sentences now this is the a group of them that is just made and we thought what could this group them look at what is the thing that you continues to look at but never fully understand so we placed a mother bought into a camera in front of the inmate this group in this machine have
a guess about its own existence what am i but i mean do you think the machine knows it exists can it be vain i mean you've called it narcissus or not says go but nonsense is in english perhaps or from the latin. can it be vain can a machine be vain can it have emotions i don't know if it could so the machine does not have intention and i don't necessarily know what vanity or not says this but but i do know is that we speak very often just like me right now about ourselves and this is what he can do to. you really think so. yes ok now my father couldn't imagine as a child meant landing on the moon i could imagine as a child the internet existing we've got ai and technology moving so fast today you'll very creative so speculate for me what unimaginable
things are soon going to be possible i think being visionary today is more complicated than ever because i think i couldn't really tell next year it's that fast hold technology is changing but i do believe that within the next 2030 years we will see an existence digital existence that we can ask any question and it will respond. to and it will be right what it says do you think that's good i can tell it's too complex yeah let's have a look at one more piece this is called pig of our visa and now unlike any other pieces i've seen which all had contemporary music on it this has classical opera while we were asked to actually to open the cooktop last and actually go outside. what is played inside in the so everyone is invited on the marketplace in front of
the place like the who's is resident to see what happens there and reproach is different. code for every sentence he says because what he says there is so beautiful and he speaks about the rooms wandering the world and searching for help ok this is fascinating been fascinating more still so thank you meo christian thank you very much for being with us today thank you. to brixton right up in the north of italy and a festival of lights and water it's just the 3rd year that the festival has taken place but it's no longer an insider tip with more and more visitors arriving each year they come to one office from all over the world can do by combining light with water using the cultural treasures of this beautiful old town as a backdrop. the
