My favourite AI in culture project at the moment is… the Met’s Open Access program. It is really an exciting project and I would love to get my hands on the data and knowledge base. Could an AI system develop a different view on culture and art? Could this data provide an AI system with a kind of cultural taste?

By 2030 I would like to have an AI app which… overcomes all language barriers.

My worst AI nightmare is… that people do not want to see the great chances that AI systems provide.  

The future of AI needs… all of us.
