AI: More than Human
🌍 Groningen (NL)

What makes us human? And why do we sometimes fear artificial intelligence? And what about technological singularity - the moment in time when artificial intelligence outperforms human intelligence? The increasing yet often invisible implementation of AI in our daily life (think voice assistant and deep-learning algorithms) causes more questions than answers. Should we be defensive or welcome this new technology as part of our human evolution?

Each response aims to re-frame our relationship with nature to communicate a new urgency. In short, we need to confront environmental issues. And we need to do it now.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
