SUSI.ai: What is the Art in Artificial Intelligence? brings together a group of international researchers in an open and experimental format that explores the ‘future of search’ with an opensource personal assistant (SUSI.ai). With hands-on interaction and a ‘behind the scenes’ in-depth analysis by Michael Christen, along with the interests and expertise of the participants, the event will focus on teaching ‘art’ to artificial intelligence – contributing content to SUSI’s library of potential answers (https://skills.susi.ai/) so that it could ‘learn’.
The event also intends to investigate some of the consequences of feeding and training AI concerning digital labour and gender bias with Personal Assistants along with ‘surveillance activities’ in the home and office. Besides linguistic understanding, ethics of AI will also be explored regarding questions of teaching AI and ways in which AI could be trained differently. (https://susi.ai/about).
On 15th November (16:00 – 18:00) there will be an open presentation for the public. Please register (firstname.lastname@example.org).
