Workshop Tova Averbuch and Tonnie van der Zouwen: HeArtIficial Intelligence

16 November 2019, 10.00 am to 12.30 pm, including coffee break, Floor 2 – Lovelace

From the central theme Artificial intelligence and digitization we want to add the ‘heart’. We place the focus on what makes us human and how we want to connect to the world (animals, plants, things, earth). In a collective storytelling and collective harvesting experience we explore intelligence in 2069, when we developed our full potential as human being. We will create images of the future, inviting as many senses and capabilities as possible: pictures, music, smell, taste, dance, imagination, talking, play. The workshop will create more awareness of the differences we make, from what perspectives we look at our world and at intelligence.
