Prof Toby Walsh & Dr Belinda Dunstan in Conversation

Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the way we communicate, how we are being creative and how we experience and understand our world. For our project Kulturtechniken 4.0 we invite artists, experts and other creatives to take part in this important discussion.

In the first event of this series we will examine the relevance and influence of AI for skills previously reserved for humans such as creative work, reading and speaking. What are the ethical, philosophical, technological and practical implications of AI for human life?



Prof Toby Walsh is a leading researcher in AI and holds the positions of Scientia Professor of AI at UNSW and Research Group Leader at Data61. He has been elected a fellow of the Australian Academy of Science and has won the prestigious Humboldt Research Award. Website Twitter
