The lecture is dedicated to Artificial Intelligence in an artistic context. Going through the projects of Uncanny Dream exhibition, we will explore three of possible approaches to Neural Networks in art: aesthetic, utopian and dystopian. The first approach is focused on aesthetics of AI, the second one explores the potential limits and possibilities of the technology, and the third approach is a critical approach to technology which is more focused on ethical issues related to the implementation of AI-based technologies.
