Harmonious AI – Cyber Physical Symposium

Harmonious AI approaches the artificial intelligence’s ability to act as an esthetical and emphatical vector. How does training for/on emotions can generate human-centered impactful output?

Within the framework of the exhibition 'Cyber Physical: Architecture in Real Time', EPFL Pavilions presented a full-day free symposium on Friday 22 September 2023 bringing together speakers from the worlds of art and science.

At the intersection of art, technology and architecture, 'Cyber Physical: Architecture in Real Time' reshapes our perception of the physical and digital realms. The exhibition presents four installations that incorporate digital elements such as creative AI and 3D projections into tangible structures, to create interactive and responsive environments. This synergy enables architectural spaces to dynamically adapt and communicate with both their users and surroundings.

Within the framework of the exhibition, EPFL Pavilions presents a full-day free symposium questioning this interconnection through four themes — Blurring Humans, Harmonious AI, Intimate Hybrids and Markets in Motion – merging together perspectives of scientists and artists. The speakers will share their cutting-edge practice on the forms, the relevance and the feasibility of the digital extensions of our realities.
