This free interactive exhibition at QUT Art Museum raises questions about art, machines and humanity - and gives visitors a chance to see works like Robo-Panda!
Why future still needs us: AI and humanity is a creative window into the world of artificial intelligence. At a time when we are seriously considering a not too distant future when AI will overtake human intelligence, this exhibition explores an alignment between humans, creativity and the machine.
AI already is able to draw pictures, compose music, write novels, and even produce movies through machine learning and deep learning, using big data and increasing processing power. It can learn and think by repeating the process of analysis, classification, reasoning, prediction, and regression through different artificial neural network algorithms.
Artists in this interactive exhibition have learned to use an accessible artificial intelligence technology and developed a work that explores AI as both a creator and an amplified collaborator, which can learn by itself and works beyond the existing modes of human-machine interaction. Whilst creative applications for artificial intelligence are still in their early stages, this exhibition nevertheless raises questions about humanity in a future machine age.
Why future still needs us: AI and humanity is an Art Center Nabi (Korea) touring exhibition.
