The summer edition of our semi-regular hands-on Artificial Intelligence meetup. We will discuss various projects that are currently being developed at V2_Lab, in the Summer Sessions, and elsewhere. Of course there will be plenty of time to enjoy a drink and discuss your own perspectives on AI and ML.

doors open at 19.30
program starts at 20.00

The Critical AI Manifesto is a platform on which you can construct your own manifesto about the role of Artificial Intelligence in society, by picking from a set statements to add them to your manifesto and re-ordering them. This project is in the starting phase, in a collaboration between V2_Lab, Jerry Galle and Jerry Estié. The set of statements will be expanded, and we want to use this evening to start the discussion and come up with more statements. You can already start with your own Critical AI manifesto at https://caim.v2.nl/.

Computer Says No: V2_Lab invites Rotterdam based artists and makers to come up with absurd scenarios that expose how unrestricted categorization leads to AI: Artificial Inequality. An example of such a scenario is a Hipster Bar by Max Dovey. A selection of these ideas will be invited for a mini-residency leading to a Test_Lab presentation. In this meetup we will explain a bit more about the program and will be available to respond to your initial ideas.

TeleAgriCulture: Rhizomatic Bias: What happens if biotopes start chatting to each other using social network communication models? TeleAgriCulture: Rhizomatic Bias, aims to explore how bias grows in machine learning and intelligent systems. Through a digital network three aquaponic systems are allowed to learn about each other and communicate via light and sound with one another.
