art+science+AI talks within the exhibition AI Realities

3 min read

As a meeting point for artists, researchers, philosophers and other creators who develop artificial intelligence systems or who interpret and present them through their authentic poetics, approaches and scientific work, the series of art+science+AI conversations offers a unique insight into the theoretical background of art+science practice as well as into the presented contents of the exhibition AI Realities.

The Museum of Science and Technology
15. 19. i 21. oktobar 2021.
(October 19 – livestream on CPN's YouTube channel)

The conversations are dedicated to topics that range from scientific research of the concept of artificial intelligence to applied disciplines that deal with this topic. At their center is a creative and critical consideration of the potential and possible outcomes of transdisciplinary cooperation in the field of art and science, all in the domain of artificial intelligence. In the thematic framework of the conference, we place special emphasis on problematic issues such as the ethical and identity aspect of new technologies, availability and application of the technology itself, as well as the involvement of the broader community and citizens in decision-making processes and directing technological progress.

Due to the pandemic circumstances and complex health situation, the originally planned, all-day event has been developed and divided into several interconnected units. The event planned for November 19 represents at the same time the closing event of the entire project of the European Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence - AI Lab, with the participation of the largest number of project partners. This event will be recorded and broadcast live via the YouTube channel of the Center for the Promotion of Science.
