seize their passports they met up with alfred in switzerland the family later moved to paris and finally settled in london in 1035. her throat when hitler still 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 yet really. managed to talk to their children about the past that obviously it was difficult and. this was an easy way in there because. nothing awful happened to us.
you know they had to read it in school and just part of it could kill them and then they had to write. a song about that because i hated to i thought also simple sites that i thought you should just read them and that was enough. 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 a 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 of when it stole pink rabbit. now take a look at this this is a piece created by what's been out

at the same time. germany but the world came down and that was directly into this very inclusive close shelf just space. ok. let's talk about artificial intelligence because i know that fascinates you now and we've got a recent piece called narcisse 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 them 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 continuously look at but never fully understand so we placed a mother bought into a camera in front of a row inmate this group in this machine put it like this about its own existence
what am i but i mean do you think the machine knows it exists can it be very i mean you've called it narcissus or not this 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 ness is this but but i do know is that we speak very often just like me right now about i was hills and this is what he can do to. you really think so. yes yes ok now my father couldn't imagine as a child med landing on the moon i couldn't imagine as a child the internet existing we've got ai and technology moving so fast today your 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 all technology is changing but i do believe that within the next 2030 years we will see an existence of digital existence that we can ask any question and it will respond. to and it will be right what it is do you think that's good i can tell that'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 one that we were asked to actually to open the last and actually show. is always a chance what is played inside the palace so everyone is invited on the marketplace
