Curatorial lecture about working with art in the field of science and technology, specifically Artificial Intelligence (AI).
In European history the dichotomy of machines and humans, aesthetics and rationality, yearning for nature and the indigenous versus industrial alienation has always been an artistic topic. Currently it seems that this old struggle of the modern western human has found attention and art is of high interest in science, technology and specially AI research and development to create a more human future. This and other artistic strategies and topics are explored at the ETH AI Center in Zürich with its AI+Art initiative.
