From Hype to Reality: Artificial Intelligence in the Study of Art and Culture

After the initial «hype» associated with the acronym «AI» in various contexts, the reality of conducting interdisciplinary research projects revealed many existing challenges such as cross-domain knowledge gaps, terminological misunderstandings, the AI «black box» problem, lack of transparency and various data-driven biases. In that context, the dialogue between disciplines is becoming a crucial mechanism to address the various emerging challenges of interdisciplinary research. While «interdisciplinarity» is often used as an appealing buzzword, the reality of truly interdisciplinary research is very challenging.

The focus of this symposium is not on showcasing project results, but on using research projects as starting points for reflecting on the various challenges and opportunities of integrating AI methods in the study of art and culture. The symposium aims to bring together diverse perspectives and encourage cross-disciplinary discussions on the globally relevant topic of AI and its far-reaching implications on the future of science, art and culture.
