Invitation to Ars Electronica 2017

On September 7th to 11th, Linz in Austria.  I was invited to Ats Electronica Festival 2017.

I gave a talk about “Self-Organizing city: Tokyo” at Ars Electronica Tokyo Initiative.  I was talking about how to create a better future AI society by shifting from design thinking to “art thinking”.

The main theme  2017 was “The Artificial Intelligence -The Other I- Technology as Antagonist or Alter Ego?  Various artists, national and social scientist, industries, and politicians discuss AI and the future society together during this festival. I enjoyed very much!!

with Prof. Hannes Leopoldseder, founder of Ars Electronica
