AI in a world of cross-over challenges

Capacities of deep learning and autonomous decision making introduced new subjectivities like smart assistants, as well as ways of urban mobility that reshape the appearance of urban landscapes. Technologies are not neutral. While they appear as commodities, they also bring concerns and controversies. Due to their utterly remote and invisible presence, also their impact remains invisible - unless it gets addressed.

Artists engaged in the AI technologies research them not only from the perspective of aesthetics but also ethics and politics. As the art makes the invisible visible, in the context of AI artists pursue an effort of revealing the hidden processes, infrastructures and resources in presentable and understandable ways.

Within the efforts of the S+T+ARTS initiative of the European Commission, the broader community of artists, research institutions and cultural venues are taking the effort of creative research and innovation, contributing new insights for new societally relevant technologies.
