>>> soon >>> 20th and 21st of June in Basel, Switzerland)! >>> https://www.ixdm.ch/re-imagining-ai-pre-program/ >>> Symposium: "RE-IMAGINING AI. Scholars, Artists and Designers in Dialogue". The symposium aims at discussing existing works and identifying novel fields of artistic and designerly engagement with a domain of computing that increasingly changes our understandings of human intelligence, transforms our habitats and suggests new ways of living. So far, aesthetic works on AI typically concentrate on revealing, amplifying and playing with machine vision, pattern detection, deep learning, automated sense-making, and advanced techniques of image manipulation in a way that complements, enriches, and disturbs scholarly thinking about the transformations these technologies entail. Utopias and dystopias of artificial intelligences, smart environments and computationally optimized lives as observed, reflected, interpreted, augmented and worked through by artists and designers multiply our often too limited, too situated and ultimately deadlocked ideas of what artificial intelligence could come to involve.
