In this Agenda we will be grappling with The question of Artificial Intelligence, then especially when it comes to Art and Craft, and the question it poses on originality, work, and how we are to understand the making of the AI, and the AI as maker.
The Agenda seminar series is a collaboration between Oslo National Academy of the Arts and Kunstnernes Hus.
The seminar will be in English.
About the event
From the beginning of time the question of the automata, the robot, and the creation of life has been an ethical question, one that we constantly grapple with, and that we use to question ourselves, and now, with the later years emergence of AI, used to generate text, images, videos and conversations, the question arises again, but then not as a far flung tale of future and outer space, but how it will affect our society. In this Agenda we will be grappling with this question, then especially when it comes to Art and Craft, and the question it poses on originality, work, and how we are to understand the making of the AI, and the AI as maker.

When I was young – and still probably – I could not get enough of science fiction. I was constantly devouring books, films, and tv-series exploring both outer space and the future, the magical and the catastrophic – while at the same time asking basic questions concerning our humanity and society.
Within this genre, this world of extraordinary tales, were the machines, the computers, that a lot of the time had an intelligence, an artificial Intelligence, and in the same manner that science fiction as a whole asked questions about humanity, artificial intelligence asked questions about what a human being was, and is, and how we were to understand the mind and the machine.
