Ariana Dongus (KIM PhD student) and Adam Harvey (KIM research associate) contribute to the online symposium “AI Infrastructures for Civil Society and the Arts” organized at the Hartware MedienKunstVerein Dortmund in the context of the exhibition “House of Mirrors: Artificial Intelligence as Phantasm.”

This one-day symposium explores the proposition that a civil society AI infrastructure is needed to provide computational capacity and processes for the fields of art, human rights, ecology, and political activism as a public mission. To this end, a number of individuals have been invited to highlight and then discuss various aspects of civic and artistic AI infrastructure in keynote presentations. The symposium results from the observation that many of the artists* active in the field of Artificial Intelligence are dependent on the infrastructures of Google, Amazon and Nvidia, and that a public AI infrastructure does not yet exist in Germany.
