The AI Lab conference gives a platform to concepts, projects and individual actors who explores scientific and technological aspects of AI, as well at the impact the development and deployment of artificial intelligence has on art, culture and society as a whole.

A series of panels will split the focus of AI-related research into categories such as Media Literacy, Music, Civil Society and Feudalism which all aim to deconstruct visions, expectations, fears and possibilities surrounding the core theme, while inviting on-site and online audiences to contribute to the ensuing discussions. The European ARTificial Intelligence Lab is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
