Wonder about the foundations of language, its meaning and its forms... for men and machines.

A film by Benoît Labourdette (3’10s, 2016).

This film is part of the transmedia project “The singularity” (www.la-singularite.com).

Why this movie ?

Poetic variation from a text of Jacques Lacan (the Seminar - Book II (1954-1955) - XXII - Where is talk ? Where is language ?

Text prepared by Jacques-Alain Miller - Editions du Seuil.

In 1955, the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan asks about forms and functions of language, between humans, between humans and machines, and machines between machines. In my opinion, in a pre-conscience of the subject, he defines the foundations for a psychoanalysis of artificial intelligence.
