ARTificial Intelligence Lab offers residency at Leiden Observatory
The European ARTificial Intelligence Lab is now offering artists working with Artificial Intelligence the chance for a residency at the Leiden Observatory and the Ars Electronica Futurelab. Entries are possible until 22 July 2020
The residency call is managed and organized by Ars Electronica in collaboration with the Leiden Observatory. The residency theme for this open call is Astronomy x AI. By using experimental methods and technological approaches like artificial intelligence, the Leiden Observatory aims at understanding what we actually see when observing such an ungraspable thing as the Universe.
