In the not too distant future, the new Central Government reigns supreme over the First Unified World. This government, created by technology companies and mercenary scientists, is made up of 5 electronic entities that have been trained to behave and respond like the historical character they represent: Emily Elizabeth Dickinson, Michael Joseph Jackson, Elon Musk, Annelies Marie Frank and Slavoj Žižek. But they don't rule without problems... the neo-Luddite terrorist group GLODO (Group for the Liquidation and Derivation of Computers) tries to destroy them from its base in a small town in northern Spain.

During the last 5 years, Artificial Intelligence has been talked about in all kinds of me-dia with frequency and passion. But ... Is it a reality? Is it already happening in our daily lives or is it just a reality in research labs?

This conference offers an overview of the use of algorithms in the creative process and an introduction to the use of neural networks, using as an example the work "Speculative Artificial Intelligence". The differences between working with algorithms and working with artificial intelligence will be discussed, and strategies for using artificial intelligence in the artistic process will be proposed.

Since the last century, there has been great technical interest in computer voice generation, which has undergone constant evolution. Today, we see that the new methods of generation with machine learning obtain results of great realism. This opens up a world of possibilities for use both in our daily lives and for artistic creation.
WinterLAB 2019 Feminist Data Set - Workshop
22
Nov
2019
One of the latent problems of AI is that it often learns from pre-existing images and sounds, in which certain traits and patterns are perpetuated that do not precisely help to abolish the prejudices related to sensitive subjects such as gender, for example. Aware of this situation, Feminist Data Set consists of a series of workshops, conferences and participatory actions, through which all types of data are collected related to the image of women in society and culture.

After encounters in recent years- about design and digital manufacturing, culture makers and new means of creation and audiovisual production within the framework of various European networks- WinterLAB 2019 will focus on the confluence between Art and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Since late 2018 -and for the next three years-, LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial  is part of the European ARTificial Intelligence Laboratory (AIlab), a project co-financed by the European Union's Creative Europe program and the Government of the Principality of Asturias. Through this project, the AIlab network aims to bring AI technologies to a wider audience in order to contribute to a more critical, reflective, and participatory society in building the future.  The project focuses on aspects beyond the technological and economic horizon to analyze cultural and social aspects. From the perspective of the 13 main cultural operators of this European network (Ars Electronica in Linz, Centre for the Promotion of Science in Belgrade, the City of Knowledge Foundation in Zaragoza, Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana, Science Gallery in Dublin, Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens, The Culture Yard /  clickfestival in Helsingr, GLUON in Brussels, Hexagone Scène Nationale des Arts in Grenoble, SOU Festival in Tbilisi, le lieu unique in Nantes, Waag Society in Amsterdam and, finally, LABoral in Gijón), AIlab will address the visions, expectations, benefits and fears that we associate with AI through an extensive program of activities in the form of exhibitions, laboratories, workshops, conferences, talks, performances, concerts and residences, always with a transdisciplinary approach.

The WinterLAB program offers both theoretical and practical activities. This encounter is meant to enrich the production of new experiences and knowledge through dialogue and interaction among artists, scientists, technologists and citizens, in order to encourage and share critical thinking, as well as creative processes and innovative participatory dynamics in the field of AI. This meeting places contemporary artistic practices in the role of social engineering, in order to serve as a mediator among all participating agents. The presentations and colloquia are intended to critically analyze the state of the art, and then to call for  an open and transversal reflection in which scientific research, as well as artistic creation and citizen participation explore the challenges posed by IA for the most diverse fields of experience and knowledge. In doing so, it seeks to address the lack of both knowledge and methodologies related to the use of AI within the educational system, the home environment, and social networks and the handling of our digital devices.

The practical workshops seek to make languages and creative proposals known to wider audiences and, at the same time, offer creators and professionals tools and techniques applicable to their creative processes.

WinterLAB 2019 coincides with the opening of the exhibition D3US EX M4CH1NA, also framed within the European ARTificial Intelligence Lab project (AIlab).

Registration is free of charge.

Note: It is essential to register due to limited space for the activities.
