The latest developments in artificial intelligence truly are astonishing, and they will soon be advancing exponentially with the increasing scientific and economic power that is invested by the big companies. The European ARTificial Intelligence Lab brings AI related scientific and technological topics to general citizens and art audiences in order to contribute to a critical and reflective society. The project is focusing on aspects beyond the technological and economic horizon to scrutinize cultural, psychological, philosophical and spiritual aspects. From the perspective of 13 major cultural operators in Europe, the European ARTificial Intelligence Lab centers visions, expectations and fears that we associate with the conception of a future, all-encompassing artificial intelligence. The artistic practice of creative exploration and experimental appropriation of new technologies triggered a wide interest from professionals from other industry disciplines. The European ARTificial Intelligence Lab fosters the position of artists regarding their exploitation of new business models, activity fields, and professional networks. An extensive activity programme in the form of exhibitions, labs, workshops, conferences, talks, performances, concerts, mentorings, and residencies will foster interdisciplinary work, transnational mobility and intercultural exchange. In total, the project will realize 211 activities such as 26 residencies, 22 exhibitions, 23 workshops, 9 performances and 32 discursive programs.
