Mere months after blowing minds at Sundance, the interactive “Frankenstein AI: A Monster Made by Many” may now be experienced from the comfort of your own home. Not unlike Mary Shelley’s classic novel, the exploration of artificial-intelligence explores what happens when humans create something that gets away from them — but, in this case, it’s meant to assuage our fears rather than stoke them.
The project, which will continue for several years, aims to upend the dystopian view of artificial intelligence as well as “provoke and broaden conversation around the trajectory of this rapidly emerging technology.” That journey began in Park City and is meant to continue with help from the public. The creators envision it as “an evolving series of activations and experiences both online and off, that will traverse immersive theatre, browser-based interactions, community design, and other performative and experiential media.”
Lance Weiler is the Executive Creative Director & Experience Designer of “Frankenstein AI: A Monster Made by Many.” Read more about the project here, and watch it below.
