It’s time to explore Artificial Intelligence at Capricon 33!

Not sure whether artificial or inborn intelligence suits you best? That’s where the programming department comes in to help out. As always, we’re offering a wide variety of activities at (almost) all hours of the day. We’ve scheduled plenty of returning favorites, and added some new choices and faces. We think you will really enjoy your exploration of all kinds of intelligence!
