Tübingen is becoming an important location for research and development of artificial intelligence (AI). The new exhibition at the Tübingen City Museum and the accompanying catalogue: “Cyber and the City. Künstliche Intelligenz bewegt Tübingen” provide an overview of the developments, debates, protests, players and opponents on the major future topic of AI, using Tübingen as an example.
Twelve students of Empirical Cultural Studies and 20 students of the Master's programme Machine Learning have developed and produced this exhibition together with the Stadtmuseum within three semesters. The exhibition clarifies the facts and developments and provides space for debates about the use and misuse of the new technologies. Hands-on stations show visitors how machine learning works and how it can be used. Protagonists from the AI location Tübingen, which is part of Cyber Valley, from science, politics and business have their say, as do the critics and protagonists of the protests. With her work "Humano[i]de", the artist Sabine Bloch has created a photographic-artistic commentary on the topic especially for this exhibition, which is presented in a cabinet room.
