STATE of AI
The development of Artificial Intelligence is arguably one of the greatest revolutions in the history of mankind. And we are just on the brink of it. Accelerating in an exponential pace, the technological advancements in this field over the next decade – and how we will deal with them as a society – will majorly define and shape our future.
From curing cancer, over securing food safety for a growing global population, to solving climate change: Artificial Intelligence may provide key solutions to tackle many of humanities most pressing challenges.
However, the risks and dangers inherent in the development of this most powerful technology become increasingly apparent at the same time, and a growing community of researchers voice their concerns over an unregulated development of AI.
Realizing our bold hopes and ambitions while avoiding dangerous scenarios will not be possible through scientific developments alone. Public participation, creative experimentation and an open and reflected dialogue with a broader public are central in order to leverage its full potential.
A global community of innovators - the future Artisans of Artificial Intelligence - researchers, artists, thinkers, entrepreneurs, technologists, hackers, citizens – experts and non-experts alike – will play a major role in expanding the horizon of future opportunities, providing accessibility, raising awareness, exploring opportunities and risks and creating meaningful applications from this groundbreaking technology.

How to imagine future? And is it of any help to make progress tangible and senseable? What progress can be observed in the area of motions and artificial intelligence? And where else does one find "sentimental machines"?
Robots and computers have so far been conceived to perform punctual tasks and exercises in order to help humans with their daily tasks. What would happen if we managed to incorporate learning capabilities into the way they operate?
Questions about what additional knowledge and experience we can acquire by tinkering with and reflecting on current research in creative ways, and to what extend creativity in machines and artificial intelligence is being explored and developed are addressed and discussed.
with Amir Banifatemi and Christian Rauch
When: October 28, 1–4pm
Where: STATE Studio Pop-Up, 410 S Spring Str, Los Angeles

When machines begin to make art, the position of the artist is shaken: Is there still room for the artist? For the genius? Roman Lipski's works choose such reflections on authorship, genius, and originality as their starting point.
Extrapolating from today’s possibilities in AI and the life sciences, Artificial Affinity is a speculation on how we could aid wild species in more rapidly adapting to anthropocentric environments and vice-versa, increasing non-human animals’ chance of survival and giving their perspective a greater presence in the human world.
Narciss, by Christian Mio Loclair, is an AI seemingly reflecting on its own existence. The artwork is built as a machine that analyzes its own physical embodiment with the sole purpose of describing its thoughts while looking at itself.

In a mashup of dialogue from the two movies, a new context for the electronic protagonists' words is created.
Within the coming decades, we’ll have the ability to create computers with greater-than-human intelligence, bio-engineer our species and redesign matter through nanotechnology. How will these technologies change what it means to be human?
Filmmakers have always been fascinated with the potential of dystopian scenarios where machines and humans endlessly collide in violent confrontations under a dark and gloomy sky.
In the film's Berlin Premiere, Herzog leads viewers on a journey through a series of provocative conversations that reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works - from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships.
