You and AI: Through the Algorithmic Lens at Maker Faire Rome

Fri 8th - Sun 10th October 2021

Maker Faire Rome, the important European event dedicated to creativity and technological innovation returned with a focus on artificial intelligence, presenting YOU and AI: Through the Algorithmic Lens exhibition of artwork

Gazometro Ostiense, Via del Commercio, 9/11, 00154 Roma RM, Italy

If artificial intelligence shapes our lives, who shapes artificial intelligence? How are we influenced by machines that make decisions that we may not even be aware of?

You and AI is an exhibition that explores artificial intelligence not as some future potentiality but as a present-day reality. From social media platforms using algorithms to select the content we see and hear, not to mention our friends and where we go out, to digital maps that suggest places for us to go and how to get there, to predictive text on our mobile devices that completes our sentences for us, writing along with us, artificial intelligence is now to be found on our very bodies. 

Curated by our Creative Director Irini Mirena Papadimitriou and Valentino Catricalà (SODA), the exhibition showcased several pieces of immersive and interactive artworks that question our fantasies and perceptions about artificial intelligence.
