In this conference, it is the aim to understand whether it is possible to embrace Artificial Intelligence despite its controversial application and employment in today’s digitized society.

By looking at the limits and at times inaccessible promises of this technology, this conference explores the impossible possibilities of AI that go beyond the understanding and blunt imitation of pure cognition. It aims at continuing and opening up discussions that explore AI as an embodied experience, as a sensual, magical, mysterious, poetic technology, a technology of futures, while keeping in mind that this technology does not only reveal the inequality and injustice embedded in digital and social codes; it is also an experimental attempt, a lab, that is enthusiastic about discovering and envisioning the possibilities of a decolonial, queer-feminist, capitalist-critical and ecologically networked society.
