Event description
An evening exploring artificial intelligence applications in the museum sector.

About this Event

For decades, artificial intelligence has held a prominent position in our collective imagination, powering future visions ranging from transhumanist utopia to dystopian depictions of a world run by machines. As such, exploring, critiquing, and understanding the ethical implications of AI within a museum context is becoming a pressing need.

In an evening co-hosted by The Interaction Lab at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and the Museums + AI Network, we’ll explore three different perspectives on AI applications in the museum sector. We’ll begin with a series of talks by a curator, a “computer,” and a creator, followed by discussion.

Speakers

Curator: Andrea Lipps, Associate Curator of Contemporary Design, Cooper Hewitt

Computer: Harrison Pim, Data Scientist, Wellcome Trust

Creator: Karen Palmer, Storyteller from the Future

Museums + AI Network is a Goldsmiths, University of London and Pratt Institute research partnership exploring the possibilities and ethical implications around AI in museums, with a specific focus on collections and visitor experience applications. The network is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK).

The Interaction Lab is Cooper Hewitt's newly launched visitor experience design lab, bringing interactive design methodology to the very heart of Cooper Hewitt’s visitor experience—across digital, physical, and human interactions.
