Exploring the Future of AI Through Science, Art, and Games
As artificial intelligence (AI) becomes reality, the implications stretch beyond science and industry. AI will change how we work and play, challenge our conceptions of truth and reality, and provoke critical ethics and regulatory conversations. Scientific research alone is insufficient to probe these complex questions, and today’s artists, engineers, and game designers are already exploring how AI will change the face of our society. Join the University of Chicago’s Center for Data and Computing (CDAC) and the Media Arts, Data and Design Center (MADD) in the newly-renovated John Crerar Library for a panel featuring experts from UChicago’s Department of Computer Science, UChicago Arts, and the Weston Game Lab, plus a special playtesting session of Inhuman Conditions, a forthcoming game from Secret Hitler creator Tommy Maranges.
This event is part of UChicago Innovation Fest 2019, a month-long celebration of pioneering discovery and entrepreneurial endeavors at the University of Chicago. Organized by the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the series of events, workshops and accelerator programs, including the globally recognized Edward L. Kaplan, ’71, New Venture Challenge, highlights the breadth and impact of innovation at UChicago in the areas of entrepreneurship and research commercialization, scientific advancements, and social and global impact.
