 Exhibition concept:

 Machine intelligence has been a part of the human imaginarium for more
than a century, and the approach to the subject matter is inevitably marked
by sci-fi utopian/dystopian scenarios with automatised societies of our
near future. The efforts to make machines more independent from the
environment, with the possibility of independent action in relation to man,
have produced an increase in efficiency, human emancipation from alienating
serial production (manufacturing, or later fordist), technological
unemployment, and entirely new areas of ecological risks.

 Technological development based on machine autonomy produced enthusiasm
and fears, it is an emotional and theoretical battleground that endures to
the present day. In parallel with these technical challenges, there is
questioning of the independence of the autonomic system, its ethical
position towards human, and its capacity to learn and improve. Regarding
the relationship between society and technology, the concept of autonomy is
most easily defined as a certain type of independence from management and,
ultimately, independence from control. Transferring some crucial social,
cognitive, and biological processes to machine intelligence resulted in
evident concerns for many people that such a scenario could take away the
human decision making processes which once defined him/her as a social

 Areas of interest: machine autonomy / monitoring of public and
institutional sector / technological unemployment / robotic arms race /
