Perfumery is an art. But it is based in science. While it is easy to forsake rigour in our quest for beauty, it is important not to lose sight of empirical truths. Neuroscientist Anna D’Errico is here to help, in this continuation of our Science of Smell series.

In her latest class, Anna digs into the details about scent relates to technology. We’ll explore current discourse around artificial intelligence, algorithms, machine learning and digital devices — and how they relate to our sense of smell. Join us for a facts-based class that provides an overview of basic scientific concepts – busting a few myths along the way.

This online talk is presented as part of The Science of Smell series, a collaboration between the Institute for Art and Olfaction and Anna D’Errico.
