Artificial Intelligence and Cultural Techniques

Pepper Interactive Robot Source: TU Berlin/ Christian Kielmann

Sonja Griegoschewski, the director of the Goethe Institute in Australia, has initiated an international programme on Artificial Intelligence, which is to run for two years and, in addition to the planned events, will offer a website, a magazine and discussions on Twitter and LinkedIn. Exhibitions will also be added next year. The series is entitled Cultural Techniques 4.0, because it is particularly dedicated to the question of how AI can complement our cultural and creative abilities.

Artificial intelligence - self-learning machines - Does that give you hope or anxiety? Will there be fewer jobs or many new professions? Can machines teach us languages?
Where are the limits of what a machine with AI can do? Can it teach us cultural backgrounds? Politeness? How could it ever deal with the aspect of emotionality? Computers live on, even if we die.

Here is the link to the website about the project:

Due to Covid, many of the events on these topics in the programme will be digital, but on Friday 23 October, in addition to participating on the computer at home, for the first time there will also be the opportunity to participate in person at the Goethe Institute. On Friday we will hear from Prof. Toby Walsh "the Australian rock star of the AI", an international luminary in the field, and Dr. Belinda Dunstan, an artist who is now working in a robolab, and where she explores the interface between man and machine. They will discuss how AI changes our communication, our experience of the world and our creative activities. But also important questions of ethics, of responsibility, for example how to make AI trustworthy - should be part of the discussion, and I also talked about this in this interview with Sonja Griegoschewski.
