Art, Design and Architecture as a Laboratory of Digital Modernity

-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Panel
german language

The process of digitalisation is changing our daily lives so fundamentally that we live in a new era of modernity – digital modernity. Challenges of this scale demand a radical change of perspective. How can we respond to the new global paradigm of AI (artificial intelligence) and robotics with “artistic intelligence”, i.e. benefits from art and other creative disciplines in order to collectively promote positive change?
