My favourite AI in culture project at the moment is… the artist Sofia Crespo‘s exploration of biological processes and machine learning.

By 2030 I would like to have an AI app which… tracks the status of all of the non-human animals and none of the human animals.

My worst AI nightmare is… panopticon.

The future of AI needs… to offer better methods for mitigating climate change and main-taining the earth’s biodiversity.
