Art and Cosmotechnics

Yuk Hui

In light of current discourses on AI and robotics, what do the various experiences of art contribute to the rethinking of technology today?

Art and Cosmotechnics addresses the challenge of technology to the existence of art and traditional thought, especially in light of current discourses on artificial intelligence and robotics. Thinking art and cosmotechnics together is an attempt to look into the varieties of experiences of art and to ask what these experiences might contribute to the rethinking of technology today.
