In the beginning of 2015, the feature film "ExMachina" is being released in German cinemas and tells of the interaction with the artificial intelligence "Ava", which is portrayed as a beautiful humanoid robot woman. Two years later, the android "Sophia" of Hanson Robotics receives the citizenship of Saudi Arabia. A year later, the Kammerspiele show a piece without an actor - on the stage stands as sole protagonist a copy of the novelist and playwright Thomas Melle.
We are on the threshold of the age of artificial intelligence: the extent and impact of AI will be deeper than any other transformational period in our history. The AI has the potential to radically change every sector of industry and society.
If we want AI to serve the collective needs of humanity, then there must be a deeper understanding of it. As well as everything that moves us - physically, intellectually, emotionally. It is important to develop machine intelligence that not only understands human language, feelings, intentions, and behaviors, but also interacts according to common ethical standards. To achieve this, the creators and designers of AI need to be largely representative of society. This requires real diversity - not only across disciplines, but also in terms of gender, ethnicity, age, nationality and culture.
In this respect, it is becoming increasingly important to develop a common understanding of the term "artificial intelligence". We need to do more than to use it as an empty buzzword. In the frame of the festival "Policy Of Algorithms" we will bring together experts, leading thinkers and creative minds from the industry, the start-up scene and the arts to one one stage.
Where has the development of AI achieved until today? What is the status quo? Which questions and projects is the industry dealing? What impact does technology have on society and different sectors of the industries? We would like to show some examples of AI, as generated within the industry and the startup world – and to think together also about how the artistic avant garde deals with it.
Laura Bechthold and Fabian Pelzl from the "Center for Digital Technology and Management" (CDTM) invite to an interactive format. Not only the panel participants but also the audience will be involved.
The "Center for Digital Technology and Management" supports this discussion and is a joint institute of the Technical University of Munich (TU) and the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (LMU). It offers the interdisciplinary degree program "Technology Management" and helps motivated students with different study backgrounds to put their creative ideas into practice.
On June 13 at 6 pm.
Part of the festival “Politik der Algorithmen – Kunst, Leben, Künstliche Intelligenz” from June 11 to 16, 2019
