Tue 28 September 2021
› Thu 30 September 2021

From 28 to 30 September 2021, AIFA21 has taken place at the Belval campus of the University of Luxembourg as an open event for a large audience. As part of the overall AI Pavilion project (for Esch2022), numerous experts from the field of AI and the arts have explored the increasing interactions between the two fields and address a wide range of topics. AIFA21 is a multidisciplinary event that aims to discuss and explore future developments, opportunities and risks of AI, for example:

  • What is the role of AI as a tool for creating art in the visual and performing arts?
  • What kind of AI technology is used and how is it used?
  • How does AI as technology become a material component of a work of art?
  • How do AI utopias and dystopias influence contemporary art production?
  • What role does AI play in the development of contemporary art?
  • Is AI a stronger vector of artistic interdisciplinarity?
  • How can artists inspire or trigger scientific and technological innovation in AI?

On 28 September, AIFA21 will be officially opened at 13.45 by Prof. Dr. Jean-Marc Schlenker, Dean of the Faculty of Science, Technology, and Medicine at the University’s Computational Creativity Hub (Maison du Savoir, Administration building, Ground floor). Please join us on-site or online (links for the online event are provided below).
