Digitization is not only changing our definition of truth, but also the question of what ownership means in today’s digital world.
Ownership and truth in the age of artificial intelligence – the Ars Electronica Festival 2023 will explore this spectrum of topics and the questions they raise.
On Thursday, May 11, 2023, we will open the new exhibition “Compass reloaded! Navigating the Future” at the Ars Electronica Center!
We experiment, develop and tell stories with technology. The first part of Ars Electronica’s 2022 Year in Review shows how.
Since September, the new exhibition “Me and the Machines” has been awaiting you at the Ars Electroncia Center.
Hardly any other technology currently leaves us as perplexed as artificial intelligence. The exhibition “Mission AI” at the Deutsches Museum Bonn now also conveys a deep understanding.
Forward-looking prelude to Ingolstadt Science Congress with AI compositions of the Ars Electronica Futurelab co-performed by the Georgian Chamber Orchestra.
[:de]Throughout time and across cultures, humans have been conditioned to view death as an endpoint in the experience of life. In an increasingly globalized and digitalized world, have our traditions and behaviours towards death changed? What happens when data outlives the person?
“It takes a village to create something special” and Holly Herndon and her team have succeeded in doing just that. In the interview, she presents her machine learning project in more detail, for which she has now received the European Commission’s STARTS Prize 2022.
“Understanding AI”: In this first of three lectures about “Artistic Journalism” for Keio University SFC in Japan, Hideaki Ogawa addresses the role of art as a media of communication.
There have been many attempts to express music in words. But what happens when you transform a sequence of letters into music with the help of Artificial Intelligence?
Halsey Burgundy and Francesca Panetta discovered the prepared speech for U.S. President Nixon in the archives and recreated it in a deceptively realistic way.
What differentiates analog from digitally generated work?
A wide variety of projects at this year’s Ars Electronica Festival on the theme of “Another Tech is possible” demonstrate how new technologies and inventions can help us to deal with challenges in the future.
An international collective experimenting between art and science. A multidisciplinary educational organization to explore the origin and nature of life in the universe and the evolution of intelligence. The beginning of a wonderful friendship.
What is the origin of life? What is the origin of the universe? Where do we come from and where are we going? Questions that have preoccupied mankind for millennia, and it doesn’t look like they will be solved soon. For a wonderfully playful perspective, artists are now joining in.
Wanted: Our place in the universe. Found: A team that combines humans and AI to answer fundamental questions. Sarah Petkus and Mark J. Koch aim to educate artificial intelligence to become an individual.
They promise a future full of convenience and are said to surpass us humans in every respect quite soon. Artificial intelligence is already way ahead of us in many areas of competence. Just a few years ago, we thought that it was human creativity alone that distinguished the analogue from the digitally generated work. Because…
The JKU campus as a place of encounter and as a place for projects that can only be discovered by strolling through the park and looking attentively into the air. JKU LIT @ Ars Electronica as well as the Garden Exhibition in Kepler’s Garden on the JKU Campus feature playful projects that combine various disciplines.
There are countless examples where AI is currently being used in the fight against the Corona virus and many companies, scientists and artists are working on similar plans. We exemplary present you some of these projects.
The Ars Electronica Center may be closed at the moment, but it’s not abandoned. We accompanied a colleague during his work at the Museum of the Future, saw a robot from the inside and learned how 3D printing can help in the corona crisis.
Everyone talks about Artificial Intelligence (AI) – but what exactly is it? This glossary shows and explains the most important terms of the world of AI and connects them with examples from the Ars Electronica Center.
On the basis of anonymised mobile phone data, the Austrian company Invenium is creating movement analyses to help the crisis team to check the effectiveness of the measures taken against the Corona virus. But many citizens are concerned about the protection of their data.
We looked at several examples of how Artificial Intelligence, Big Data or Machine Learning are used in the containment of the coronavirus, and the problems, opportunities and challenges they present.
Ein “Donkey Car” ist ein selbstfahrendes Auto im Miniformat, ein ferngesteuertes Auto, das trainiert wird, um eigenständig einen Parcours bewältigen zu können. Im Rahmen der Themenwochen KI findet der Open Workshop “Donkey Training” statt, bei dem BesucherInnen mithilfe Künstlicher Intelligenz einem Roboauto das autonome Fahren beibringen können. Wir haben eine Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitung für euch zusammengestellt, wie…
We tried for you how to compose music with the Deep Neural Network “MuseNet” from OpenAI and made a step-by-step guide based on it. If you want to learn more about composing music using AI, you should visit the Open Soundstudio at the Ars Electronica Center and participate in the “MuseNet Special” workshop.
Shortly before Christmas, Katharina Hof, cultural mediator at the Ars Electronica Center, gave a lecture entitled “Anatomy of an AI System” to roughly 500 students at the HTL Neufelden. How it happened and what the lecture was about was revealed to us by the school’s director, Walter Jungwirth.
Digitalisation is on everyone’s mind. Artificial intelligence surrounds us in many everyday situations and moves into our most intimate living spaces. Everything is connected, we are constantly online. Is there still a life without the World Wide Web? Why shop yourself when the refrigerator can do it alone? Of the comforts and dangers of a…
