(Gender) Awareness in Artifical Intelligence Workshop
February 16 - February 23
Participatory workshops form a key component of this project, where Mert Akbal collaboratively create AI-inspired images with attendees. These workshops blend human creativity and generative AI tools, fostering innovation by using AI to visualize itself. Participants gain insights into artificial image generation, demystifying the technology and getting hands-on with AI tools. The workshops culminate in following steps: 1. Question current gender stereotypes and meaning of gendering robots at all 2. Imagine customizable robots allowing for individual expression and diversity rather than fixed gendered characteristics 3. Imagine “genderless” robots, transcending human gender categories 4.Imagine gender-fluid robots reflecting the dynamic and multifaceted nature of gender itself. 5. Step Out of Human Social Relations and imagine “Robot-Specific” identities creating unique and innovative ways of understanding AI that are not constrained by human biases. At the end of the workshops, the workshop-generated images will undergo a captivating transformation for the final exhibition. The immersive format will incorporate projection mapping, VR tools, and screens, with curation by Mert Akbal, ensuring a visually stimulating and interactive experience for visitors.
