Me and the Machines, Magdalena Sick-Leitner, δημοσίευση στο Ars Electronica Blog [17/10/2022]Marilena Pateraki
Since September, the new exhibition “Me and the Machines” has been awaiting you at the Ars Electroncia Center.
In the new exhibition “Me and the Machines” at the Ars Electronica Center, which is being staged in cooperation with the Robopsychology Lab at Johannes Kepler University Linz, human relationships with artificial intelligence and robotics will be examined in greater detail and the question will be asked as to how we as humans experience intelligent machines and how we behave toward them.
Based on changing works curated by the scientific team of the Robopsychology Lab, the new exhibition invites visitors to explore, try out and reflect. Questions explored together with the audience address aspects such as trust and understanding, rejection and acceptance, humanization of machines and dissociation from them.
Artificial intelligence, smart apps and robots become ubiquitous interaction partners. We take their recommendations, make decisions together, collaborate in the workplace, and talk to them – sometimes almost as if they were real people. But what are these machines to us, how do we, as human individuals with all our different needs and experiences, experience them? Are they welcome support or scary competition for us, mere tools or social counterparts?
Human thinking, feeling and behavior – these have always been central objects of psychology. Building on this, the Robopsychology Lab at Johannes Kepler University Linz has been researching since 2018 how people experience intelligent machines, how they behave towards them, and how needs of different groups of people are taken into account in technology development. Participatory and transdisciplinary research processes are of great importance here.
We spoke with Univ.-Prof.in Dr.in Martina Mara, head of the Robopsychology Lab at Johannes Kepler University Linz, about the new exhibition at the Ars Electronica Center.
