For excellence in art that explores future relationships between humans and AI, robotics or biotech.
The Lumen Prize is partnering with the MindFuture Foundation, for the new MindFuture Award, to be launched with Lumen’s 10th Call for Entries in February 2021. The award has been created to celebrate excellence in the creation of art that engages audiences in a dialogue about the personal, cultural, and social significance of artificial intelligence, robotics or biotechnology.
We at the MindFuture Foundation are looking for artists who explore the ethical and existential dimensions that emerge with the increasing entanglement between humans and these humanised technologies. Exciting projects, operating at the cross-section between art, science and philosophy. To provoke awareness and spur debates about how the use of next generation technologies can be integrated into society safely, ethically, and sustainably.
The Field is OPEN
Themes may include, but are not limited to…
What are the ethical and existential dilemmas that next-generation technologies increasing entanglement in our everyday lives, bring? How do advances in machine learning perpetuate hidden power dynamics within our society? What do developments in genetic engineering mean for matters of gender and identity? Who has agency and accountability in machine-assisted actions? How do we negotiate complex ethical dilemmas that may not have a binary solution? Who is or isn’t in a dataset, what can AI algorithms be blind to, and what role does code bias play in decision-making?
