A critical thinking workshop on the radical potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to change human bodily experience.

In this workshop we focus on the drastic and, as of now, underestimated potential of AI to change human bodily experience. We begin with the question “Would you live with an autonomous prosthesis?” Using speculative methods and critical conversations, we discuss the ethics of AI in relation to future intelligent machines that do not only live with us, but on and within us.

What forms of bodily experience will emerge? Who will own the algorithms and the data driving these new prosthesis? Will prosthetic devices become more appealing to those who do not necessarily need one? Will they become more useful for those in real need?


The workshop is part of Donnarumma’s 2-year Research Fellowship at Berlin University of the Arts, in partnership with the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory at Beuth-Hochschule für Technik Berlin, 2016-2018.
