Today, World Museum Liverpool announced tickets for their upcoming major exhibition AI: More than Human (opening 22 January 2021), will go live on Friday 9 October. The New Year will begin with this timely landmark show as visitors are transformed into a world of interactivity – learning about the many developments in technology from the 1940s to the present day.
With a focus on healthcare, racial bias, experiments in computing, and several interactive artworks, this will be an unmissable exhibition. Bringing together artists, researchers, and scientists, visitors will come away with a new attitude towards machine co-creativity – and how Artificial Intelligence is more ingrained in our lives than we thought.
Anne Fahy, Head of World Museum said: “World Museum explores millions of years of Earth’s history and the human activity that has shaped it. In this fascinating exhibition, we see just how long and how important the epic story of AI has been on human development.”
“Featuring remarkable work by leading scientists, researchers and artists, AI: More Than Human is an unmissable taste of the breadth of creativity that is being generated and inspired by algorithms and machines. It demonstrates the opportunity for us to push our creative boundaries, and the potential of exciting collaborations between humans and machines. It allows visitors to consider their own relationship with AI, and what the future may look like.”
Divided into four sections, the exhibition starts with origins of Artificial intelligence, moving into some ground-breaking works by figures such as Ada Lovace and Alan Turing; while section three examines the capabilities AI has to change society, looking at ethical issues, before finally ending with section four which looks to the future of the human race – and where AI fits into our lifestyles, and how (if) it shapes our lives.
AI: More Than Human was curated and organised by Barbican International Enterprises. The City of London Corporation is the owner, founder and principal funder of the Barbican Centre. Co-produced by Forum Groningen, Netherlands.
