With Artificial Intelligence (AI) comes the reimagining of culture across art, design, and computer science. Designers and artists working with AI, face the challenge to integrate it positively into real life, informing ideas around what AI means for our human selves and the profound transformation of our broader social systems. How can we develop an aesthetic of AI that is accessible and open, moving from obscure and technical black boxes?
This talk at maat with Sheldon Brown, Professor and Research Leader at UAL Creative Computing Institute, explores the application of AI in art and design while also raising the complex issues of who we are becoming in the process of inventing it.
SCIENCE IS FICTION
Do you feel that complex new scientific topics or words are rapidly invading our daily lives? Do you know what biodegradability means? Or biodesign? Or what the abbreviation AI stands for? Or that psychedelics is an important mental health science?
The museum organises several talks with scientists, mathematicians, engineers, doctors, PhDs, artists and other experts. These sessions aim to bridge the gap between science (often complex and coded) and society in general. Speakers are invited to address complex topics in clear but non-simplistic language. Children and adults are welcome. Everyone will leave feeling more enlightened.
