AI: More Than Human at the Barbican - 05-17


The Barbican’s new exhibition, held in its Curve space, takes in artifical intelligence from its inception to its power today. The exhibition starts us off pretty early – with the Jewish Golem and ancient Japanese animist beliefs. There is a lot of ground to cover between then and now, from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein to Ada Lovelace’s propositions for a “a calculus of the nervous system” all the way up to Siri and Alexa, but the exhibition doesn’t shy away from trying to cover it all.
