Description

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming a major topic of interest, not only among policymakers and in the business world, but also in the arts. As AI becomes increasingly embedded into our society, the traditional boundaries between humans and technology will be less clear.

The exhibition "AI: More than Human", currently on at the Barbican Centre, depicts the development of AI and offers a vision of the future through various art works, as well as stressing the role of Japan and Japanese culture in the historical development of AI.

In this seminar, chaired by Dr Maria Chatzichristodoulou, Dr Yoichi Ochiai, a prominent Japanese media artist and scientist, will talk about his art works using AI and his wide range of projects.

Dr Suzanne Livingston, curator of the Barbican exhibition, will explain how the exhibition was designed and what it tells us about AI, describing the main approaches followed and challenges encountered. Finally, Dr Drew Hemment will talk about the role of AI in the arts based on findings from his recent academic research.
