Sails Lunch Time Seminar: AI in the Museum Series

Monday 23 January 2023

How to put an algorithm in a showcase

In this presentation I wil give a look behind the scenes of brAInpower, an exhibition on Artificial Intelligence in Rijksmuseum Boerhaave, the Dutch national museum of the history of science and medicin in Leiden. At the first sight, an exhibition on this topic seems quite challenging. After all, algorithms are invisible. What kind of telling objects can be displayed?  I will desrcibe how we dealt with this challenge, give an overview of the themes and key-messages of the exhibition and set out what we think the visitors will take away from it.  

Ad Maas is curator of modern sciences in Rijksmuseum Boerhaave and professor of museological aspects of the natural sciences at Leiden University.
