Event description

Description

This programme has been curated by artists Anna Dumitriu and Alex May to critically explore robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning and bio-computation through a series of installations and robotic artworks.

The title and subject of the exhibition takes inspiration from Alan Turing’s unpublished 1948 essay of the same name, which was in effect the first manifesto of artificial intelligence.

The wider programme aims to act as an antidote to contemporary hype around deep learning and warnings about future AI winters by exploring ongoing research in the fields in artificial life, computational neuroscience and consciousness research, and their foundations.

Opening event: 27th September 6-9pm,

Exhibition open 28th and 29th September 12-6pm
