IMAGINARY @ ECSITE Conference 2022 in Heilbronn
Workshop A. I.: Friday 3 Jun 12pm - 1.15pm
Workshop Exhibit: Saturday 4 Jun 2.30pm - 3.45pm
Meet us at the Ecsite Annual Conference! We are part with two workshops:
A hands-on workshop “Tinkering with Artificial Intelligence” and a session to co-create an “Impossible Science Exhibition”.
In this workshop we will get to know what AI is, how it works, and some of the challenges it raises. We will also make our own AI-algorithms, use them with microcontrollers (micro:bit) and build amazing inventions to explore how AI can be used as a creative tool.
The Irrational Funding Agency (www. irration.al) has agreed to provide unlimited resources to create the first science exhibition that’s absolutely free from budgetary or technological limitations. The agency provides each participant with an “impossible ingredient”: a pocket-size black hole, an infinitely long rope, or exhibition space in the Mariana Trench. Participants will team up, combine their items and create an “impossible exhibit”, concisely described using 150 characters and one image.
The exhibits will be discussed: Who is your target audience? What do you expect visitors to learn/experience? How can you make the exhibit accessible?
The purpose of this format is to connect people, engage in collaborative creative thinking, share ideas of how /why science exhibits work and find seeds for real exhibits. We build on a successful online experience and are open to a hybrid format (if this is not impossible).
