Adrian Notz on ‘Intelligence in the age of AI’: BeFantastic.in Dialog
Curator AI+Art at ETH AI Centre, Adrian Notz will discuss ‘Intelligence in the Age of AI‘ at BeFantastic.in at an online talk on 15 September. Adrian is also curator of the Art Encounters Biennial 2023 in Timisoara. Before joining the ETH AI Centre, he was curator at the Tichy Ocean Foundation (2020-2022), artistic director of Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich (2004 -2019), and head of the Faculty for Fine Arts at the School of Design in St. Gallen (2010-2015).
As a number of artificial intelligence systems prove themselves progressively more capable of appearing “intelligent” in ways that might appear beyond the capacities of any individual human being, has there emerged a need in humanity’s vanity to reimagine intelligence? Or does “intelligence” signify deeper characteristics of what makes us “human”, such as the capacity for empathy and the ability towards deliberate abstraction, and will there come a time when machines might embody these features as well?
Join the conversation with Adrian Notz, Anna Ridler and Veeranganakumari Solanki.
