Following Karen Palmerā€™s keynote 'Error 404 not found: New Internet Loading', this thought-provoking panel discussion features three dynamic voices from distinct realms. Artist and activist Paolo Cirio, mathematician and researcher Nanda Piersma, and futurist storyteller Karen Palmer will converge to explore the intricate landscape of media attention surrounding artificial intelligence.

With a keen eye on distinguishing the varied typologies of AI narratives, our panellists will delve into what we can reasonably anticipate from these technologies while also scrutinising the hyperbole and misconceptions that often cloud public perception. By unpacking the nuanced roles that AI plays in society, the discussion will navigate through the realms of possibility and limitation. From speculative fiction to pragmatic applications in daily life, the panellists will illuminate the multifaceted dimensions of AI's impact on humanity and the role that art can play in this context. Through their diverse perspectives, they will examine not only what AI can accomplish but also the ethical and societal implications that arise in its wake.
