VU scientists at AI exhibition at Rijksmuseum Boerhaave

14 September 2022
Rijksmuseum Boerhaave opened the new exhibition BrAInpower on artificial intelligence on 8 September. Three VU Amsterdam scientists are involved in the exhibition, including Marleen Huysman of the KIN Centre for Digital Innovation.

From deepfakes, streaming services and dating apps to facial recognition, self-driving cars and medical applications, we can no longer ignore artificial intelligence. It is changing our lives, just as steam engines once did at the time of the industrial revolution. The exhibition BrAInpower shows where AI can be successfully deployed, how we are reaping its benefits, but also highlights its downsides. 

Guest curator Bas Haring is the guide in this exhibition, leading visitors through themes on free will, consistent reasoning, self-learning and: how special are we really? Marleen Huysman outlines a different future of AI in a video by Bas Haring at the exhibition. Elly Konijn (FSW) and Guszti Eiben (Beta) are also part of the exhibition with their robots. 

The programme of activities at the BrAInpower exhibition ties in with AI week, organised as part of Leiden European City of Science, and includes lectures by scientists and experts, guided tours and an AI workshop for children.

The BrAInpower exhibition will be open to the public from 9 September 2022 to 5 March 2023. For more information, visit the website:
