Luciana Parisi, a scholar of technology in culture, art, and politics, is researching the consequences of techno-logic, or the organic development of reasoning in machines. Her lecture, part of the Art & Research Center's program New Social Abstractions, will explore how this logic fits into our typical understanding of Western philosophy and art. This is the first lecture in a series that continues through April 20. 7 p.m. Thursday at the Institute of Contemporary Art, 4040 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-901-5272; icamiami.org. Admission is free.
