Welcome to InScience

—

InScience 2017 'The facts speak for themselves' has always been an overconfident statement, but in this post-truth era, we're really making a mess of it. Fake news and alternative facts are increasingly defining our reality. Uncomfortable truths are being exchanged for comfortable lies. And why not, if you think life will go on with or without your influence? InScience is about the impact of science on society; about how science as a systematic search, unbound by our own truth, deeply influences culture. And even if the facts don't speak for themselves, nothing is possible without them. The theme 'No facts, no future' was therefore chosen for this year's edition of InScience. Ironically, this year marks the launch of an extensive virtual reality program. Not only does VR offer a fascinating visualisation of research, it also aids in the practical application of research. InScience visitors will be offered a unique sneak peek. In addition, InScience will present the first science films released at the beginning of last century, in collaboration with EYE/Dutch Central Film Archive. In this way, the third edition of InScience is linking past and future. Welcome to the third edition of InScience and welcome to film, fact, and fiction. Johan van de Woestijne InScience Director

THE PREDICTION MACHINE | MARLEINE VAN DER WERF | DOCUMENTARY | 45 MIN | 2017 | COUNTRY: THE NETHERLANDS | WORLD PREMIERE

UPSTREAM: STAN SCHOUTEN & JOREN JANZING | DOCUMENTARY | 40 MIN| 2017 | COUNTRY: THE NETHERLANDS

The Prediction Machine is the first science film commissioned by InScience. The film reveals that visual perception is not a passive registration process, but is actively directed by our predictions and expectations of the world.

In the future, the Rhine River will have to process huge volumes of water as a result of climate change. This calls for adaptive measures. But how do you generate enough support? And how do you involve people in climate change measures? Earth science students Stan Schouten and Joren Janzing researched the consequences of climate adaptations along the banks of the Rhine River. This documentary will première at InScience.

The film is based on research conducted by Floris de Lange at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. Filmmaker Marleine van der Werf is known for her other documentaries Onbegrensd (NFF, IDFA) and De vrije markt (NPO, 2Doc).

No Facts, No Future? René ten Bos

The Science Behind Emergence Max Cooper

How should scientists approach an audience of sceptics? This question is hard to answer because the facts change in complex times. As a result, it's all but impossible for scientists to offer any guarantees or certainties. The facts are obscured by uncertainties, probabilities and doubts. How, as good scientists, do we deal with this and what does it say about our expertise?

British techno producer and scientist Max Cooper presents ‘The Science Behind Emergence’ in a lecture at InScience. Emergence is the story of natural laws and processes, their inherent beauty, and their action to yield the universe, us and the world we live in. The story is told using a universe timeline, from pre-Big Bang to the future, with each chapter representing a collaboration with a different visual artist, including collaborations with mathematicians and scientists. Each track is mixed with data visualisations, including waves, spatial dimensionality and the action of the physical forces on matter. Max Cooper will open the third edition of InScience with his multimedia show ‘Emergence’ at Doornroosje on 8 November. The lecture ‘The Science Behind Emergence’ will be held at Arthouse LUX on 9 November. Concert tickets: www.doornroosje.nl Lecture tickets: www.insciencefestival.nl

Robot safari through Hollywood George van Hal

Philosophical CafĂŠ: condemned by data Lecture

LECTURE + FILM CLIPS / SAT 11 NOV / 7.30 PM / 75 MIN / LUX 2

Science fiction films abound with robots. From the terrifying walking skeletons in the Terminator franchise to the adorable robot in Wall-E and the life-like human replicants in Blade Runner. There are even robots without bodies, like the treacherous HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey and the seductive Samantha from Her. In this lecture, New Scientist editor George van Hal, author of Robots, aliens and popcorn, will take you on a robot safari and show you how science fiction and science influence one another and inspire each other to reach ever-greater heights.

What can predictive data tell us about crimes and perpetrators? Science philosopher Ton Derksen, best known for his involvement in the Lucia de Berk case, explains the consequences of misinterpreting data. Together with law philosopher Derk Venema, he will explain the possible implications of incorporating predictive data and algorithms into our legal system, based on the film Pre-Crime.
