Opening event: 27th September 6-9pm.

Exhibition open 28th and 29th September 12-6pm

Intelligent Machinery - FREE Exhibition (RSVP)

This exhibition and events programme by artists Anna Dumitriu and Alex May critically explores robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and bio-computation through a series of installations and robotic artworks. The title and subject of the exhibition takes inspiration from Alan Turing’s unpublished 1948 essay of the same name, which was in effect the first manifesto of artificial intelligence.

The wider programme aims to act as an antidote to contemporary hype around deep learning and warnings about future AI winters by exploring ongoing research in the fields in artificial life, computational neuroscience and consciousness research, and their foundations.

Intelligent Machinery – Symposium: Costs £5

Speakers: Anna Dumitriu, Alex May, Professor Volker Steuber, Professor Daniel Polani, Professor Bruce Christianson, Dr Lola Cañamero.

Saturday 28th September 3-5pm

This event will comprise a series of short talks laying out contemporary research in computer science, artificial life, computational neuroscience and consciousness research from both scientific and artistic perspectives, followed by a panel discussion and audience questions. We will discuss the contemporary hype around deep learning and prophesies about impending AI winters by exploring ongoing research in the fields in artificial life, computational neuroscience, consciousness studies and robotics.
