MACHINE – Online Interdisciplinary Public Forum

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

15 Sep 2020 to 17 Sep 2020 Once Only Event

The Ian Potter Museum of Art invites audiences to jump online and engage with the theme of MACHINE as one of the most pressing concerns of our time. Through an ongoing interdisciplinary forum series, the Potter asks: Have you ever considered how technology might promote discrimination or impair our ability to make shrewd decisions? Or wondered how an AI doctor might diagnose illness just through listening? These, and a host of other questions, will be considered as part of their next interdisciplinary forum. The MACHINE forum will take place via Zoom on Tuesday 15 – Thursday 17 September.

The MACHINE forum responds to rapidly expanding developments in areas such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, data and algorithms that are increasingly impacting our daily lives.

In a diverse program of speakers held over three afternoon sessions, the MACHINE forum will explore the interface between humanity and machine across diverse fields of research including digital ethics, data analytics, creative writing, visual art and mathematics.

All sessions for MACHINE – Online Interdisciplinary Public Forum are free, however bookings are essential via the website.
