AI: More than Human Exhibition Catalogue
The AI: More than Human catalogue considers the philosophical, scientific and artistic approaches to artificial intelligence; exploring and expanding on the themes and content of the exhibition.
With 250 pages of illustrated content, the catalogue features introductions by the exhibition’s curators, and essays and conversations from key figures and thinkers in the field.
Key features include Margaret Atwood’s essay Are Humans Necessary? tracing the history of robots in literature and culture; a fictional piece written by the late cultural theorist Mark Fisher in collaboration with co-curator Suzanne Livingston; xenopoet Amy Ireland and computer generated 3D poems/modules that pose a challenge to the limitations of human language. Plus Demis Hassabis, co-founder of Google DeepMind, and professional Go player, Fan Hui, describe how their experience of the Alpha Go program changed their perceptions of human vs artificial intelligence.
The catalogue is designed by London based studio the Bon Ton, who have commissioned a generative typeface for the catalogue.
