We don't know what our future will look like. But we are working with artists, scientists, activists and entrepreneurs from all over the world to make this future worth living. Together, we create prototypical scenarios that push technical potential to the limit and put it at the service of our society. Technology thus becomes a focal point for new fields of research and innovative applications, for fundamental discourses and inspiring perspectives for the future.

As we approach the 2024 presidential election, affordable generative #AI is fundamentally reshaping American electoral dynamics. While tactics such as manipulated images and deceptive robocalls remain prevalent, this new technological dimension amplifies the struggle between voters and manipulators. Throughout this cycle, the capabilities of technologies, the evolving #media literacy of the public, and the challenges facing regulators will all be put to the test. https://www.theverge.com/policy/24098798/2024-election-ai-generated-disinformation

(1/4) In the fight for recognition and equal rights, International Women’s Day originated in the period before the First World War. Since then, it has been celebrated annually on March 8. However, 100 years later, women are still underrepresented at the interface between #art, #technology and society. History has shown that the commitment and public visibility of women can drive progress towards equality and greater justice. The gender gap may be shrinking, but there's more work ahead! #IWD2024

(2/4) Women in Media Arts aims to catalog information about women artists and their works, especially the ones who use digital media as their artistic tools and means of expression. The project makes this information available to the public to improve career opportunities and the public perception of females in media arts. https://archive.aec.at/womeninmediaarts/ #IWD2024

arselectronica,

(3/4) From the woman who discovered DNA to history’s most successful pirate, “Where are the Women?” is celebrating women in arts and culture with fascinating and interesting articles. https://artsandculture.google.com/project/women-in-culture #IWD2024

(4/4) SISTERS WITH TRANSISTORS is the remarkable untold story of electronic music’s female pioneers, composers who embraced machines and their liberating technologies to utterly transform how we produce and listen to music today. https://www.arte.tv/de/videos/104017-000-A/sisters-with-transistors-die-verkannten-heldinnen-der-elektronischen-musik/ #IWD2024

The CIFO x Ars Electronica Awards 2024 are honoring innovative #mediaart from Latin America for the third time in a row.

This year’s winning projects by Federico Gloriani (AR) and Guely Morató Loredo (BO) use modern media technologies to address the ecological (im)balance and the use of raw materials in Latin America. The common link: a reflection on #sustainable alternatives.

As #neurotechnology advances, exemplified by Neuralink's brain chip, #AI-powered brain decoders, and consumer EEG headbands, we are approaching an era where the harvesting of neural #data by corporations could become commonplace. This technological progress raises critical privacy concerns. It has catalyzed legislative initiatives aimed at establishing "neurorights" to safeguard individual mental #privacy and autonomy against unregulated access and exploitation. https://www.vox.com/future-perfect/24078512/brain-tech-privacy-rights-neurorights-colorado-yuste

arselectronica,

In 2022, Artist in Residence at the Ars Electronica Futurelab Roel Heremans developed five interactive installations, that let people discover and feel their own needs for neural rights.

AI's #energy use is significant but unclear, due to variability in models and lack of transparency from tech giants. Training #AI like GPT-3 for example consumes massive electricity, with its overall environmental impact still uncertain. Projections suggest AI's electricity demand could rise sharply, urging a need for greater openness, efficiency, and questioning AI's essential uses for sustainability. https://www.theverge.com/24066646/ai-electricity-energy-watts-generative-consumption

Today in 'Shitty Art-world Gatekeepers Treating Artists Shittily' news...

Wondering what happened to some applications that took days and days to put together, I find that @arselectronica who run an EU Digital Deal residency are not even bothering to notify losers! Only winners contacted.

No feedback was bad enough. Now, not even a courtesy 'no thank you'.

Shame on you, Ars Electronica.

Shame on all you gatekeepers who think it's fine to treat people this way.

arselectronica,

@cyanotype This is, by no means, to say we don't care about all the applications and the artists who put a lot of work into them. We are and have always been committed to promoting the work of emerging artists. For this open call, we have had to make tough decisions, choosing from a large number of great applications. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to give feedback or write to each artist. We hope you understand and we wish you all the best in the future.

arselectronica,

@cyanotype we're sorry you feel this way. We have received an overwhelming amount of applications for this particular open call, and together with all the partners in it, we have decided to inform the winners for now. There will be a public announcement later in the month.

What do we want from AI? How do we make music with artificial intelligence? What does it mean to do so--and is it even a good idea? In this thought-provoking talk titled 'Music & AI: What Do We (Really) Want?', Associate Professor at Stanford University Ge Wang champions the use of #AI as a means to augment and broaden our human capabilities and potential: https://youtu.be/1tqgwlfi8P8?si=JoiELPjaVdQgLmPh

#AI is reshaping music by improving creation, production, and consumption, introducing innovative songwriting, performances, and personalized experiences, like virtual concerts. However, challenges like copyright issues and the authenticity of AI-generated music necessitate careful ethical considerations. The industry's future involves balancing technological advances with protecting artists' rights and maintaining the emotional depth of music. https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidhenkin/2023/12/05/orchestrating-the-future-ai-in-the-music-industry/?sh=58ad57bd4f64

In the largest mass-market #AI release to date, #Google is implementing #Gemini, its series of advanced language models, across a broad spectrum of its services, including Android, the iOS Google app, Gmail, Docs, and more. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/8/24065553/google-gemini-ios-android-app-duet-bard

The widespread adoption of AI-generated imagery has sparked concern among creators over the unauthorized use of their works for #AI training, undermining their livelihoods. Solutions such as Glaze and Kin.Art offer ways to make artworks resistant to AI training, providing creators with mechanisms to protect their intellectual property amidst challenges posed by digital proliferation and AI technologies' exploitation. https://www.theverge.com/24063327/ai-art-protect-images-copyright-generators

arselectronica,

@f4grx that's true, unfortunately disrupting the training of AI models with certain types of data without significantly altering the original material is much harder.

The EU's #AI Act has successfully passed its final major obstacle towards adoption after receiving approval from COREPER. This significant milestone paves the way for the Act to be formally adopted and implemented across the #EuropeanUnion, setting comprehensive regulations for the development, deployment, and use of #artificialintelligence within member states. https://techcrunch.com/2024/02/02/eu-ai-act-coreper-vote/

Nxai, an ambitious project led by AI pioneer Sepp Hochreiter in Linz, Austria, is aiming to develop a more efficient and faster #AI model than #ChatGPT. This European initiative seeks to develop an independent AI capability, emphasizing the use of advanced memory technologies for improved language processing and the strategic importance of maintaining technological competitiveness within Europe. https://www.derstandard.at/story/3000000205801/ki-modell-aus-linz-will-chatgpt-schlagen

Fei-Fei Li, the Godmother of #AI, earned that unofficial title from her peers through her pioneering work harvesting #bigdata to power AI, leading to breakthroughs such as #ChatGPT and its many successors. Her personal story is inspiring, from her childhood in China to risking her scientific career on a research gamble that might well have failed. And like a real godmother she now feels responsible for the revolution she helped launch. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2023/nov/05/ai-pioneer-fei-fei-li-im-more-concerned-about-the-risks-that-are-here-and-now
