SEMINAR: (Un)programmable Behaviour, 22 May
Humans are capable of making intuitive leaps, lateral thinking, emotion, aesthetic choices, integrating various sources of input into assembled impressions, and asking new questions. It is time to articulate ‘the human’ in new ways, against the background of what machines have been learning.
This seminar, moderated by Maurits Martijn (De Correspondent) will investigate the issue of progress in relation to behaviour that can or cannot be computer programmed. Speakers include Rinie van Est (Rathenau Institute, author of Intimate Technology, 2014), Thomas Klinkowstein (Media A, Hofstra University, Pratt Institute), Ståle Stenslie (Professor of Art & Technology, Aalborg University) and Geert Mul (media artist).
