Since time immemorial, the way we use technologies has also shaped the way we live. Against this background, how can humans and artificial intelligence coexist? The experiment by Leo Mühlfeld attempts to overcome the stigmatizing view of artificial intelligence as our rival by focusing on the cooperation between people and machines. In doing this, the Vienna designer makes use of an approach theorized by the chess grandmaster Garry Kimovich Kasparov, in which artificial intelligence and individuals each introduce their best characteristics to the mix. The resulting design process is specially adapted for children and its objective is the joint design of toys. Four such designs were realized as prototypes in the run-up to the festival and can be seen during the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK in a display window on Brigittaplatz.
Initiated as part of and with the friendly support of the Design Investigations (ID2) Studio of the University of Applied Art Vienna.
With thanks to Max Kure, Lucy Li, Selma Mühlbauer, Julian Paula, Florian Semlitsch, Elizabeth Sharp, Valentina Sturn, and .Viviane Freismuth-Wohlfarth.
