Yuz Museum Shanghai is pleased to present Lying Sophia and Mocking Alexa, an exhibition exploring the relationship between humans and machines within the framework of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Opening to the public on November 14, 2020, the exhibition brings together artists and researchers examining the topic from a variety of perspectives including the impact of AI on global technopolitics and on geologies, the absurdity of quantifying human emotion, the dark labor involved in training “human-like” algorithms and the myth-like narratives about AI propagated by the media. The exhibition is curated by Iris Long, the 2018 winner in “Sustainability” of the Hyundai Blue Prize which aims to explain the profound impact of technological change on human consciousness and society.
