The Information of Space
BY MILES THOROGOOD
@ VOL 3
ON SEP 28, 2013
Miles Thorogood explores how space provides information and can be interpreted by artists in different ways. This concept is the basis behind Audio Metaphor, a company which transforms text into soundscape composition. Miles describes some projects that have been done to create AI systems which mimic animal behaviour.

Standing at the Crossroads of Biology, Computation, and Design
BY DAVID BENJAMIN
@ VOL 4
ON MAY 18, 2015
David Benjamin is Principal at The Living, a design firm that brings architecture and design to life — literally. David expounds upon some of the amazing projects his firm uses to combine natural, biological intelligence and artificial intelligence to find new solutions to old problems.
Whether it’s using living mussels and sensors to understand changes in water quality, or growing biodegradable bricks using the root-like structures of mushrooms and agricultural waste, and then building a structure using 10 thousand of these, the projects in action are a small window into our future.

ON FEB 16, 2017
In Honor of World Science Day for Peace and Development:
"I don't know what the future of artificial intelligence is, I don't think anybody really does..."
In Artificial Intelligence from PechaKucha Night Madison, WI Vol. 21, Jules Brovont will clear away some common misconceptions about what artificial intelligence is, what it isn't, and what its capabilities are. Are you already using AI without realizing it? Where is AI taking us as a society, and how is it already changing our lives? Jules will scratch the surface of these fundamental questions, and catch a glimpse of how this technology is already beginning to shake the foundation of our civilization.
Artificially Intelligent - No! - Yes for Real!
Hew Leith gave his PechaKucha at Vol. 17 of the London Series and introduced the audience to IntelligentX, the world's first beer brewed by artificial intelligence which he created with Dr Rob McInerney.
When The Guardian hear about A.I Beer they agreed it may be the first use of AI they feel okay about - "AI might be shaking up life as we know it, but like any good party guest, it’s about bringing the beers. That’s according to the work of London-based company IntelligentX, which is using artificial intelligence to brew the perfect pint"
Right after Hew's talk I know most of the audience were already Googling to find out more - order your own AI Beer here - http://intelligentx.ai/
Should We Love Robots?
BY SCOTT MIDSON
@ VOL 19
ON SEP 28, 2017
Dr. Scott Midson is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at The Lincoln Theological Institute. He is the lead researcher on ‘Living with and Loving Machines’. This project brings together questions about how we understand humans and technologies in their relationships, and seeks to encourage an alternative way of reflecting on these using the theological notion of ‘love’.
In this talk he explores how theological and religious ideas shape how we ineract, and even love, robots.

Fascinated with the evolution of neural networks and applied learning, Chris de Jong decided to create a twitter bot.
A project with unexpected results, this experiment taught him that creators need to be conscious of the biases that can be transferred and amplified through tech. and the resulting effects on society.
Sophia Grant, Skills Development Scotland
BY SOPHIA GRANT
@ VOL 35
ON OCT 25, 2018
Over the last two years Sophia Grant has been working in the Service Design and Innovation Directorate at Skills Development Scotland to define the skills that Scotland’s people will need to thrive in the fourth industrial revolution, and to consider how these skills will be embedded in SDS’s apprenticeship qualifications. Before arriving in Scotland, Sophia worked for the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs where she applied human-centred design to transform public services relating to passports, citizenship and births, deaths and marriages.

Silo 468 Light Art Project
In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Frankfurt Vol. 21) Tapio Rosenius of Lighting Design Collective (Madrid, Spain) talks about his organization's work on the Silo 468 light art project for the City of Helsinki. This urban light art installation uses wind, swarm intelligence, and logarithmic lighting controls to achieve its artistic vision. The project is part of the 2012 Helsinki World Design Capital initiative. This presentation was given prior to the project's completion, but to see its construction and debut, check out LDC's Vimeo post.
Medical students' education
Aleksey Dubinsky is training medical students. Main task of future technologies in medical students’ education is reducing the number of real patients and substitute them for artificial patient on the period of learning and training. Great tour to modern and future medical technologies presented on PKN vol. 7 FutureTechnologies Dnepropetrovsk.
Intelligence of the Future
How do you imagine people of future? And how do you imagine intelligence of the future? Great and interesting view on the intelligence of the future who have to think about future breakthroughs but to put actual actions to do it presented by young entrepreneur Eugene Khimenko on PKN vol. 7 Future Technologies, Dnepropetrovsk.
The Halifax Explosion
In today's Presentation of the Day, "The Halifax Explosion" from PKN Des Moines Vol. 3, Alan Feirer speaks on some historical knowledge he acquired while on a trip with his family to Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The Invisible Internet of Everything
How many of your appliances are already controlled by the collective intelligence of the internet? Science, engineering, and collective intelligence have come together to create a powerful internet of things around us. In “The Invisible Internet of Things” from PKN Toronto Vol. 31, Madhuri Eunni, founder and CEO of SKE labs, explores the infinite possibilities of the internet of things from wearables, smart homes, to smart cities, and how it changes the way we live.
Intelligence and Mysteries
“Science fiction is inevitably science fact.” Science fiction author Jeremy Gosnell speaks on the current state of artificial intelligence and biotechnology.

Standing at the Crossroads of Biology, Computation, and Design
"We applied that algorithm [extracted from xylem cell exoskeletons] to design objects at a different scale." From Standing at the Crossroads of Biology, Computation, and Design at Brooklyn Vol. 4, David Benjamin, Principal at The Living, a design firm that brings architecture and design to life, expounds upon some of the amazing projects his firm uses to combine natural, biological intelligence and artificial intelligence to find new solutions to old problems.
