My favourite AI in culture project at the moment is… Time Machine. It’s Eurocentric but a non-commercial tool for deep-time understanding of place that could have a much broader application.

By 2030 I would like to have an AI app which… sorts out the plethora of information, variants and seeming duplicates on my desktop. That sounds like a tech-savvy assistant that can read my mind. It could turn out to be a nightmare!

My worst AI nightmare is… that there are so many! State surveillance by facial recognition, for instance. But let’s add, at the micro level, university management by algorithm.

The future of AI needs… human judgement. What is possible in a post-enlightenment world?
