Robots: A Step in the Evolution of "Design with Purpose"

BY MICHAEL WIENEN
@ VOL 4 ON SEP 29, 2015

Michael Wienen states that, as an adjective, robotic has come to describe mundane repetition of actions completely void of creative thought. It's ironic that robots, actual robots, have inspired thousands of local youth to dive into the waters of creativity...swimming deeply and coming back for more. High-tech robotics programs have proven themselves locally as an effective educational lure. We'll see how "high technology" accounts for less of the lure than we thought and how applied creativity is the real reward these students are drawn to. This hypothesis is spawning a new generation of local educational programming.

Artificial Intelligence

BY JULES BROVONT
@ VOL 21 ON FEB 16, 2017

In Honor of World Science Day for Peace and Development:

"I don't know what the future of artificial intelligence is, I don't think anybody really does..."

In Artificial Intelligence from PechaKucha Night Madison, WI Vol. 21Jules Brovont will clear away some common misconceptions about what artificial intelligence is, what it isn't, and what its capabilities are. Are you already using AI without realizing it? Where is AI taking us as a society, and how is it already changing our lives? Jules will scratch the surface of these fundamental questions, and catch a glimpse of how this technology is already beginning to shake the foundation of our civilization.

Artificially Intelligent - No! - Yes for Real!

BY HEW LEITH
@ VOL 17 ON NOV 09, 2017

Hew Leith gave his PechaKucha at Vol. 17 of the London Series and introduced the audience to IntelligentX, the world's first beer brewed by artificial intelligence which he created with Dr Rob McInerney.

When The Guardian hear about A.I Beer they agreed it may be the first use of AI they feel okay about - "AI might be shaking up life as we know it, but like any good party guest, it’s about bringing the beers. That’s according to the work of London-based company IntelligentX, which is using artificial intelligence to brew the perfect pint"

Right after Hew's talk I know most of the audience were already Googling to find out more - order your own AI Beer here - http://intelligentx.ai/

What is the human? Imagining The Posthuman Self

BY ANATOL BOLOGAN
@ VOL 13 ON DEC 05, 2017

Exploring the confluence of the human body, science and technology
the focus of Anatol Bologan's art-based research is to develop a series of digital and interactive artworks that engage the viewer with the discourse of humanism versus technicism by immersing the viewers into a multisensory interactive space. Interdisciplinary at its core, the project engages scientific, medical and technology-based research and imaging in the fields of human anatomy, perception, neurology and computer science. It uses concepts of artificial intel¬ligence and medical imaging as source material for artwork that consists of digital images, sculptures and interactive installations. The digital paintings, interactive sculptures as well as the interactive installations explore the confluence of human body, science and technology to further enquire and attempt to answer the question: “What is the Human?”

Should We Love Robots?

BY SCOTT MIDSON
@ VOL 19 ON SEP 28, 2017

Dr. Scott Midson is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at The Lincoln Theological Institute. He is the lead researcher on ‘Living with and Loving Machines’. This project brings together questions about how we understand humans and technologies in their relationships, and seeks to encourage an alternative way of reflecting on these using the theological notion of ‘love’.

In this talk he explores how theological and religious ideas shape how we ineract, and even love, robots.
