The way we imagine our futures together with Artificial Intelligence is highly dependent on the cultural environment we live in. While different cultures have imagined intelligent machines in a variety of ways since long before, in current times these narratives have been sidelined by very narrow dominant visions of the future propagated by Hollywood and big technology companies. To widen the perspectives on our AI futures the most recent editions of the MUTEK Forum introduced alternative visions from Indigenous, Japanese, and Ubuntu perspectives on this technology.

In continuation of these efforts in this session the initiator of the Global AI Narratives project at Cambridge University Kanta Dihal is joined by Artificial Life researcher Takashi Ikegami of Tokyo University, Montréal-based artist Lucas LaRochelle, and African Science Fiction expert and writer Nedine Moonsamy in a joint exploration of alternative imaginaries of Artificial Intelligence.

Activity in English language.
