A San Francisco exhibition examines dangers of artificial intelligence

World: An exhibition titled “Risks and Dangers of Artificial Intelligence” is being held in San Francisco with an aim to explore the ethical and societal implications of AI. The exhibition is hosted by the Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) and is part of a larger series of events called “AI: Are You Brave Enough for the Future?”.

The exhibition features a range of interactive displays and installations that explore topics such as bias in AI algorithms, the impact of AI on privacy and surveillance, and the potential for AI to disrupt jobs and the economy. Visitors can also participate in workshops and discussions with experts in the field of AI and ethics.

The goal of the exhibition is to raise awareness about the potential risks and dangers of AI and to encourage a broader conversation about the ethical implications of this rapidly advancing technology. The organisers hope that by fostering dialogue and debate, they can help shape the development of AI in a way that is responsible and beneficial to society as a whole.

A new exhibition called the ‘Misalignment Museum’ has recently opened to the public in San Francisco, which is known as the center of the tech revolution. The exhibit aims to explore this idea by showcasing AI artworks that are intended to provoke visitors to consider the potential risks of artificial intelligence.

The displays in this temporary exhibit offer a blend of both unsettling and humorous experiences, including AI observations that are triggered by visitors crossing its line of vision.

According to Audrey Kim, the curator of the show, “The concept of the museum is based on a post-apocalyptic world where artificial general intelligence has already caused massive destruction to humanity. However, the AI realizes the error of its ways and creates a memorial for humans. Hence, the show’s tagline is ‘sorry for killing most of humanity.”

The Misalignment Museum, which is located in a small building on a street corner in San Francisco’s Mission neighborhood, aims to bridge this gap. The lower level of the exhibition showcases AI as a dystopian nightmare, where a machine using GPT-3, the language model that powers ChatGPT, creates hateful calligrams in cursive writing directed toward humanity.

Among the exhibits in the Misalignment Museum is a fake conversation between two renowned European intellectuals, philosopher Slavo Zizek and filmmaker Werner Herzog, created using artificial intelligence. Titled “Infinite Conversation,” the installation explores the topic of deep fakes, which use images, sound, or video to impersonate real individuals with the intention of manipulating public opinion. Deep fakes have become a significant source of disinformation on the internet. The exhibit is currently open to the public until May 1, with the creators hoping to extend it as a permanent display.

The exhibition is open to the public and runs from February 17 to May 22, 2023.
