An afternoon dedicated to art and artificial intelligence. In this event, guest speakers addressed issues of philosophy, politics and aesthetics, while fellows of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artists' Support Programme (ARTWORKS Fellows) gave their views, bringing examples from their artistic research and work.
The two panels addressed the relationship between human and artificial intelligence (AI), exploring the influence of this ever-evolving relationship on the body and life, as well as on artistic creation and production. Algorithms, datasets and neural networks were at the heart of the debate concerning man and machine, memory and imagination, authenticity and deep fake technology. With references to old and new narratives of artificial intelligence, the aim was to provoke conversations about the ways in which technology affects the production and reception of a work of art, as well as how art informs and invites the audience to reflect on the ambivalent role of technology.
