The European ARTificial Intelligence Lab – a follow-up project to the European Digital Art and Science Network – offers international artists working in the field of artificial intelligence the opportunity to gain a residency at a scientific partner institution and at the Ars Electronica Futurelab. The first residency will focus on “Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence” and will be realized in collaboration with Muntref Centro de Arte y Ciencia (Museum of the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero, Art and Science Center).
The next open call will be launched in August 2019, offering artists the opportunity to spend several weeks researching at the Edinburgh Futures Institute of the University of Edinburgh, one of Europe’s leading institutes in the fields of data science, AI education, research, and innovation, and at the Ars Electronica Futurelab.
The European ARTificial Intelligence Lab will be bringing AI related scientific and technological topics to general citizens and art audiences in order to contribute to a critical and reflective society. The project will be focusing on aspects beyond the technological and economic horizon to scrutinize cultural, psychological, philosophical and spiritual aspects. From the perspective of 13 major cultural operators in Europe (Ars Electronica, Center for Promotion of Science, Zaragoza City of Knowledge Foundation, Laboral, Kapelica Gallery, Science Gallery Dublin, Onassis Cultural Center, The Culture Yard / clickfestival, GLUON, Hexagone Scène Nationale Arts Sciences , SOU Festival, le lieu unique, Waag), the European ARTificial Intelligence Lab centers visions, expectations and fears that we associate with the conception of a future, all-encompassing artificial intelligence. An extensive activity programme in the form of exhibitions, labs, workshops, conferences, talks, performances, concerts, mentorings and residencies will foster interdisciplinary work, transnational mobility and intercultural exchange.
