Artificial Intelligence Dance
Know your enemy – dance your enemy – love your enemy!
AI is to make 40% of all jobs disappear in less than 20 years, as several books predict – a super-intelligence may develop that will suppress or extinguish humankind – Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, Elon Musk and many scientists warn!
What is AI? In this workshop we will see how AI works, we will compare how AI works with how we as humans work:
- represent knowledge
- reason and fail
- sense and act
- understand and express language/speech
- learn, generalise and synthesise
- have drives, needs, motives, emotions
- have/be a personality
How would an AI express its functions if it had a body? Is a robot an embodied AI? Can an AI be male or female or both or alternating or something totally different and if yes, what? Can we give our body to an AI? How would an AI dance our body, with which impulses, speeds, variations, ...?
Let's start small: which part(s) of your body would an AI use first? How would an AI use it? Stepwise increase till the AI dances your whole body and YOU!
It is an experimental workshop, an adventure, it may fail – can we suffer? Will we enjoy it?
