Our initiative explores the potential of arts and culture to shape our future with AI. We welcome EU programs like STARTS that bring together artists, scientists and engineers to develop more human-centred technologies. Nevertheless, we believe that the potential of arts and culture could be capitalised on much stronger for the EU's general AI strategy.
As by now, we see at least the following ways in which arts and culture contribute to a wonderful future with AI.
- Arts and culture influence the course of technology.Did science-fiction only "guess" the future of AI by chance? Could we induce a desired future by creating utopian science-fiction today?
- Arts and culture make AI more inspired.Would AI have been possible without artists imagining it first? Could we harness the creativity of arts and culture to promote innovation again?
- Arts and culture make AI more accessible and trustworthy.Is it beneficial to visualise invisible AI technologies with pictures of electronic brains and frightening humanoids? Could we find better representations that facilitate trustworthy AI applications?
We would be very curious about your valuation and ideas!
