Symposium | AI, Art and Nature

04.11.2019 | Berlin | Akademiegebäude am Gendarmenmarkt, Leibniz-Saal, 18:00 Uhr

Artificial intelligence (AI) has become an indispensable part of our lives. The technological transformations are so profound that they have started to shape our relationship with the environment. Machines, with their growing potential to process very large data sets and to recognize patterns in them, nourish the hope that technology could also help to save humanity: AI might open up new ways for environmental conservation, climate protection as well as sustainable management of natural resources. On the other hand, the prospect of an even more complex and pervasive digital future is also accompanied by dystopian ideas of a total human alienation from nature.

The symposium is dedicated to artists who deal with „nature“ in their works and at the same time incorporate artificial intelligence in various ways. Together with scientists, they will discuss the following questions: How does working with AI influence our view of nature? Which ethical and aesthetic questions arise in the artistic confrontation with AI? How does AI call for rethinking the boundaries of nature and culture? What is the relationship between „artifi cial“ and „natural“ intelligence?
