HUMAIN is a project, conference and platform that opens, brings together and connects topics and experts in the fields of artificial intelligence, art, design and humanities. Artificial intelligence is a phenomenon that can no longer be presented as a mere spectacle and exhibition of robotic weapons or a useful technological curiosity. It is closer to us than it may seem at first sight. The aim of the HUMAIN project is to present artificial intelligence in a broad interdisciplinary context and framework (humanities, art and design) that has not been articulated in the Czech Republic so far.
It is necessary to highlight a large number of perspectives and thematic aspects that affect or will affect each of us in the future. Artificial intelligence has emerged from technology labs, industrial applications and IT. The intertwining of man and machine takes the intense form of interdependent and inseparable spheres, as the title of the project suggests.
HUMAN + ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE = HUMAIN
The project is a collaboration between theoreticians and practitioners from the Faculty of Fine Arts of Brno University of Technology and the Faculty of Arts of Masaryk University and the Brno.ai platform.
In its third year of existence, the conference will focus on topics around AI & co-creation/co-performance, AI & well-being, AI & sustainable society and will take place on 22 October 2022 at KUMST, Brno, Czech republic.
