Interfacce del Presente is the new exhibition curated by Tiziana Gemin and Fabio Paris, professors at IED Milano, with which Istituto Europeo di Design, from 13 to 19 March 2019, will take part in the second edition of the Milano Digital Week at the BASE Milano creative hub, via Bergognone 34.

The Chair Project by Philipp Schmitt (in collaboration with Steffen Weiss) shows images of chairs, resulting from the collaboration between artificial intelligence and a human designer

The exhibition presents a series of works concerning neural networks, able to learn autonomously and to produce their own contents. An interactive event that analyzes, through the works of 8 international artists, the relationship between humankind and machines in an age in which artificial intelligence and interactive systems are taking over. Technology has a deep influence on our daily lives, often carrying out many operations autonomously, regardless of the will of the individual.

Basic Emotion by Marco Cadioli presents a series of videos from one of the most popular databases of facial expressions used to train artificial intelligence to detect human emotions

The interaction between man and machine is very controversial. Depending on the school of thought, the emergence of inorganic intelligences among human beings could lead us to an epochal evolutionary leap or towards a dystopian future.

Imperfect Simulations by Anna Titovets explores the perception of time and the decoding of dream in the digital era

“Art has always had a symbiotic and constantly evolving relationship with the technological skills of a culture, redefining its own boundaries from time to time and questioning the role of the artist. The artistic exploration of new technological applications can help us understand the mutual relations between man and machine, also in relation to the increasingly social dimension of new technologies” – say the curators of Interfacce del Presente, Tiziana Gemin and Fabio Paris.
