Slanted 37: artificial intelligence
This product is sold out
Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) has become—besides being an over-hyped buzzword across industries (that the design world is no exception to)—a reality.
This issue of Germany's Slanted presents a debate about the impacts of A.I. and its subsets, machine and deep learning, virtual to augmented realities, and how these technologies may change our lives, jobs, and social relationships.
We live in times where decisions about what we want are no longer under our control. While many believe themselves to be free, algorithms dictate lives, hopes, and dreams. Today's humans are the parents and children, gods and slaves of the technology we invented: although it’s a masterpiece, there is a great dependence.
If “algorithms will liberate themselves entirely from us,” Peter Weibel proposes, dystopian science fictions may help us clarify what we desire and do not want.
With an introduction by Jack Dignam and Tom Barbereau
