Intelligence. Different by Nature

Our ancestors believed that only humans were endowed with intelligence. Animals and plants were not allowed to sit at this high table.

Today, in light of new scientific research, a broader definition of intelligence is emerging: the ability to learn, memorize, communicate, understand one’s environment and adapt to unknown situations. From this perspective, there are far more intelligent beings than we’d previously thought: bacteria, plants, animals, and even algorithms can be seen as smart! Today, different forms of intelligence are now plural and incomparable.

Organized and created by the Muséum de Nantes, Sciences de Rennes, the museums of Saguenay and Sherbrooke in Canada, and Science by Art.
