What if the rational capacity of AI outstrips human comprehension? As a ‘British Council for AI’, The AI Gallery is a thought experiment. How do we understand the cultural artifacts of an alien intelligence? Let’s not confuse intelligence with sentience. But we should develop frameworks for understanding, and possibly engaging, engineered systems whose status has risen above tools. The AI Gallery imagines a future where cultural exchange may help us trust machines.

The AI Gallery is conceived by Ali Hossaini and is a joint presentation of National Gallery X and the UKRI Trustworthy Autonomous Systems Hub.

Visit The AI Gallery here to explore the artists and their work. You can also view The First, a short film which explores what happens when humans turn the table on AI. Want to learn more about how AI makes art? Visit The Chaos of Raw Unknowing which explains what an AI sees. Then listen to the Art & AI Salon podcast, where researchers from King’s, the National Gallery, the Courtauld Institute, the Turing Institute and Oxford University delve into how AI art might impact society and humanity’s self-conception.
