What is the Artificial Intelligence Autumn Session about?Artificial Intelligence is one of the great technological innovations of our times. It comes with extraordinary opportunities, the impact and changes however, good or bad, induced by the new technology are not yet completely gauged. Currently, the main drivers behind development and use of AI are entities with an economic focus. From facial recognition to deep fakes influencing politics and care-giving robots; a distinctive cultural perspective with an agency regarding a humane and sustainable future society is still mostly missing.
Possible starting points for discussions and critical thinking of the Artificial Intelligence Autumn Session could be:
- Bias in AI - how history haunts the present and the future
- Privileging of marginalised perspectives and zones
- Material entanglement of animals, machines and the planet
- Countering dominant filters
- Direct witnessing and speculative practices in opposition to disinformation
- Affective interfaces; Sourcing and categorising of datasets
- Facts vs. probability and prediction
- Role of language and metaphor in defining the development and use of AI
- Ownership and rights; human, natural, robotic and other
- Distribution of benefits derived from pervasive technologies
Confirmed expert contributors include Anna Ridler (Artist) and Lorena Jaume-Palasi (Co-founder Algorithm Watch).
