Abstract

What will our digital future look like? What kind of role will man and machine have in it? In the hybrid exhibition Reflections you will find yourself immersed, through the means of online and offline installations, in a story about algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning technology. Who are you? Can the machine get to know you? How does AI work? Does your life get better when algorithms ‘optimize’ your decisions? Is your expertise still worth something if machines think faster and search better? What will then be left of you?
This e-book of the exhibition invites you to reflect on these questions and to take a moment to reflect on the societal challenges we are now facing. AI experts expect that by 2060 the machine will dominate man in all domains. But if people are no longer needed for their cognitive and artistic skills, what are we still needed for then? If machines will soon be able to think, calculate, paint and compose better than we ourselves, if their stories are more captivating and poignant than ours, from where do we as human beings then derive our meaning and what will then be our new role? In order to be happy as a human being in 2060 we need to think about our digital future, the relationship between man and machine and the place of human dignity therein.
