TALK TITLE: The Fiction Science of AI
“AI is a cultural conception formed at the intersection of the arts, engineering, philosophy, and science. The interplay of these different areas of human cultural activity push and pull our expectations and directions for the development of AI and its deployment in society at large. As we venture forward with these deployments, AI also encounters business, ethics, politics, and the law. We are moving into a new phase of feedback loops between the imagination of AI and its reification. Designers and artists working with AI face the challenge to integrate it positively into real life, informing ideas around what AI means for our human selves and for the profound transformation of our broader social systems."
