I AM A.I. - explaining artificial intelligence
We are creating a new exhibition, which aims to bring understanding about Artificial Intelligence to the general public.
Can an AI explain itself? That is a question that many researchers are asking themselves right now. We think that - at least in some cases - the answer is “Yes!”.
On June 10 the interactive exhibition “I AM A. I. – explaining artificial intelligence” will be launched in a new digital format. Different “trails” introduce the visitor to core questions around artificial intelligence through means of images, videos, and experiments. The exhibits are targeted at everyone from the age of 12. From 2021 onwards, I AM A. I. will travel to several German cities as a physical exhibition (Jena, Heidelberg, Kaiserslautern).
The exhibition, supported by the Carl Zeiss Foundation, will include demonstrations and explanations of Artificial Intelligence using interactive exhibits, artworks, videos, and workshops. It will feature both new and established research in fields like machine learning, expert systems, general artificial intelligence and more. The exhibition will visit three German cities, for three months each.
About the Carl Zeiss Foundation
The Carl Zeiss Foundation’s mission is to create an open environment for scientific breakthroughs. As a partner of excellence in science, it supports basic research as well as application-orientated research and teaching in the MINT subject areas (mathematics, information technology, natural sciences and technical disciplines). Founded in 1889 by the physicist and mathematician Ernst Abbe, the Carl Zeiss Foundation is the oldest private science funding institution in Germany. It is the sole owner of Carl Zeiss AG and SCHOTT AG. Its projects are financed from the dividend distributions of the two foundation companies.
