It seems that AI is the ultimate solution, but also the biggest concern nowadays. In the beginning of AI technology development in the late 50s, the field did not reach set goals because the machines were not smart and fast enough. Today, when it is spoken about the third wave of AI and quantum computing, the dream is very close to come true – reaching the human-level of intelligence. However, what kind of consequences could bring these technological achievements?

Starting from the invention of the first computer, artists have always been the catalysts for the development of technology from one hand, and offering a critical vision from another.

What is the state of the art of AI today?
I am going to explore the new trends in the art world and emerging tools used by creatives. Moreover, the talk points out the devil aspect of AI from the political and ethical point of view, and looks into the creative cases that hack the smart algorithms and fight back the system of control.
