At the Confines of Artificial Intelligence

At the Confines of Artificial Intelligence
#Exhibitions

The first of the two sections of the project AI Delivered analyses one of the most controversial and little understand subjects of our times - the potential and limits of Artificial Intelligence, particularly from the point of view of cognitive abilities and the capacity for self-awareness of the various forms of AI familiar to us. The works on display place the spectator in front of a dilemma - is Artificial Intelligence capable of autonomously developing emotions, perceptions and thoughts? Or do defects prevail - firstly of the emotional nature - which science has yet to address in terms of the capacity of artificial intelligence to gather all the shades and intricate aspects of the human soul? The works offer various points for reflection, from interactions with the smart home and all the accessories that make it such to the role of algorithms in the creation of images which the human mind is invited to elaborate. An exhibition - with works by Sofian Audry and Istvan Kantor (a.k.a. Monty Cantsin), HE Zike, Lauren Lee McCarthy, Casey Reas and Jan St. Werner, Devin Ronneberg and Kite, Tonoptik - which seeks to be a prelude to a second section to be inaugurated next November, imagining a world in which Artificial Intelligence, shifting from the parameters of emotional and creative judgements established by humans, goes on to create its own.
