During a two days symposium taking place at Bozar, we invite you to focus on the future of Artificial Intelligence and its impact on our living environment, cities, communities, and culture – a future that makes it “our nearest neighbour”. Researchers, entrepreneurs, creatives and artists will share their expertise on AI in Europe, addressing topics such as AI and creativity in the arts, and the future of living with AI.
Over the two days of the conference, we will host in parallel, and for the first time at Bozar, a hackathon entitled “Hack-à-deux” with art & science collaborations to explore a multidisciplinary approach to the challenges presented by AI.
The symposium and hackathon take place in the framework of the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and are organised with the support of EUNIC Global.
Tuesday 19 & Wednesday 20 October2021
