Once upon a time there was AI ...The electronic voice of the GPS that shows the way, robots that understand what we tell them and can interact with us more and more, chess software that allows anyone to practice from their computer... Artificial intelligence, ubiquitous today, has developed a lot in 50 years! Today, the exhibition at the Centre Pompidou presents a critical look at the technologies of intelligence simulation. It talks about the successive representations of the brain, recounts the rise of cybernetics or the place of the gaming industry, and shows that research can take place in the military as well as in the artistic field. At the heart of the exhibition are the artists, who are at the forefront of this change. As inventive minds, they use new technologies in their work, as much as they can criticise them in this way. The exhibition makes the logical sources and the history of these techniques legible to the public, demystifying technological progress in order to better understand it. Artificial intelligence is far from being a substitute for human intelligence, and this exhibition makes it possible to measure it, and to stimulate its neurons in a different way!
