Artificial intelligence has to be educated and humans have to decide how to educate it.
For example, if an artificial intelligence were trying to predict what the next American president looked like it would look at all past American presidents and more or less average them.
Barack Obama’s eyes
Donald Trump’s “hair”
Franklin’s Roosevelt’s lips
George Washington’s nose?

How can we use art to reverse the direction of artificial intelligence, making it a forward-dreaming tool of possibility?
Discussion led by artists: Gretchen Andrew, Libby Heaney, Jake Elwes
