Encoding Cultures. Living Amongst Intelligent Machines
- 27.04.2018 to 28.04.2018
Recent advances in the field of artificial intelligence are revolutionizing the way with which we think and act. They give an idea of the fundamental changes that will affect our society in the coming years. The interdisciplinary symposium »Encoding Cultures. Living Amongst Intelligent Machines« brought scientists, programmers and developers, cultural theorists and artists into dialogue with a broader public. The lectures and discussions provide insight into the latest state of research and development in the field of machine learning and ask about the current and long-term effects of this technology on science, business, politics, art and society.
Mario Klingemann is an artist working with algorithms and data. He investigates the possibilities that machine learning and artificial intelligence offer in understanding how creativity, culture and their perception work. An important part of this investigation is his work with digital cultural archives like the British Library's, the Internet Archive's or the collection of the Google Arts & Culture where he currently is artist in residence. He is a regular speaker on international art, design and media conferences, winner of the 2015 creative award of the British Library and his works have been shown at the Ars Electronica Festival, the Photographers Gallery, London, the Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Met and the MoMA, New York.
