How can neuropsychoanalysis help us to understand Artifical Intelligence? We encounter Artificial Intelligence everyday, which is modeled to a certain extent on human consciousness, and so AI gives us a view into what we know and what we may not know about ourselves.  In addition, we now develop our sense of self and others both within the virtual and material worlds – AI could be said therefore to not only be modeled on human consciousness, but it is also impacting our development.
In this podcast episode, Dr. Rosa Spagnolo discusses consciousness, artificial intelligence and the development of superintelligent AI.  She considers what this implies for human and AI development, identifications, subjectivity, and suffering, leveraging neuropsychoanalytic understandings of the mind.
 
Dr. Rosa Spagnolo is a child neuropsychiatrist, developmental psychotherapist and psychoanalyst member of the Italian Psychoanalytic Society and the IPA.  She is co-chair and co-founder of the Italian Psychoanalytic Dialogues Association.  Dr. Spagnolo is a member, regional coordinator and chair of the Italian group of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society.  She teaches at several institutions and is a sought-after speaker at national and international conferences.  She has written several books and articles on a variety of topics including:  Eating disorders, group analytic psychotherapy, neuropsychoanalysis, and neuropsychiatric developmental disorders.  She was nominated for the Gradiva award in 2019.

What is the relationship between the mind and the body, and how does it shape our understanding of the self? In this episode, Rosa Spagnolo presents her reflections on the topic, published in her recent book, written with Georg Northoff. In the book, she delves into how out-of-body experiences can shed light on the complex dynamics between the self and the world.  She examines  the relationship between the body and the brain, the role of time and space in shaping our experience of the self, and the intersection between psychoanalysis and neuroscience. Along the way, she touches on the potential implications of virtual reality on our sense of self.

This podcast discusses the political nature of psychoanalytic audacity in our era of fake news and disinformation. Today, gullible populations accustom themselves to the lies and misrepresentations of anti-thinking, often through the rumor-mills of social media, where any and every thought, no matter how bizarre, is leveled to an equality of consideration (Frankfurt, 2005; Hayden, 2018; Lipton, 2018; Miller, 2018). Opposed to this flattening of critical meaning, is the psychoanalytic model of enlightenment through mobilization of creative thinking.
 
Ian S. Miller is a clinical psychologist/psychoanalyst and writer based in Dublin.

He is also the author of Defining Psychoanalysis: Achieving a Vernacular Expression (Karnac, 2016); On Minding and Being Minded: Experiencing Bion & Beckett (Karnac, 2015); and co-author of Beckett and Bion: The (Im)patient Voice in Psychotherapy and Literature (Karnac, 2013) as well as On the Daily Work of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (Routledge, 2018).

Martina Burdet is a training analyst for the Psychoanalytic Association of Madrid and member of the Psychoanalytic Society of Paris. She is the Chief Executive of the e-journal Psychoanalysis.today, former General Secretary of the EPF and the Current Chair of its Working Group on Remote Analysis. 
Her book, Love in the Time of the Internet – Do you l@ve me or do you follow me? was written as a response to the increasing number of patients she has seen over recent years who are experiencing problems in their lives – problems that seem to come at the crossroad between the intrapsychic world and the social environment, digital revolution and virtual reality. She wrote the book as a psychoanalyst for psychoanalysts, but it is also intended for a wider public interested in psychoanalysis. In it, she combines psychoanalytic theory with what she calls ‘Ordinary Stories’; that is, stories of patients who describe how they can – or actually, how they cannot – love in the time of the Internet.

In this episode we’ll listen to Andrea Marzi on Some basic points on Psychoanalysis and the Internet. Actually, it’s not only psychoanalysis which reads the multifaceted nature of virtual reality, but also the reverse, where cyberspace also affects and influences seminal reflections about psychoanalysis itself and the virtual space of the mind. Psychoanalysis needs to develop an enquiry into the nature of virtual reality and the world of informatics and the new media. Together with a profound reflection from cyberspace about psychoanalysis itself and the “virtual spaces” in the mind, their (possible) existence and meaning, their role within the setting, and the consequences in the analytic field.
Andrea Marzi MD, is a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst with a PhD in Medical Ethics. He is a full member of the International Psychoanalytical Association, Italian Psychoanalytical Society and an active member of the American Psychoanalytic Association, holding in these fields several national and international functions in groups and committees. He is an IPA Member of the Task Force on Remote Analysis in Training and visiting Fellow at the University of Cambridge (UK). He worked in the Department of Forensic Psychopathology and has been a former Professor of Developmental Psychology at the University of Siena. He is also Supervisor in institutions and the NHS, and has published several dozens of scientific articles in national and international journals, as well as many books.
