Abstract : Last twenty years, many people wanted to improve AI systems by making computer models more faithful to the reality. This paper shows that this tendency has no real justification, because it does not solve the observed limitations of AI. It proposes another view that is to extend the notion of “Sciences of the Artificial”, which has been introduced by Herbert Simon, into to a new “Science of the Culture”. After an introduction and a description of some of the causes of the present AI limitations, the paper recalls what the “Sciences of the Artificial” are and presents the “Sciences of the Culture”. The last part explains the possible consequences of such an extension of AI.
