The European ARTificial Intelligence Lab is now offering artists who are working with artificial intelligence or experimenting with its applications the chance to complete a residency at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute in Mountain View, California, and the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz. The residency is divided in two parts – with an initial 4-6 weeks at SETI Institute where the winning artist will have an especially dedicated science mentor to inspire him/her and his/her work. The second part consists of 3-6 weeks with the members of the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz where the artist will produce the work inspired by the residency at the SETI Institute. The research that takes place at the SETI Institute should be meaningfully reflected in the artworks that result from the residency. Special emphasis will be placed on projects that consider artificial intelligence, ponder the beginnings of life, and critically reflect on our anthropocentric world view. The AI Lab is led and organised by Ars Electronica in collaboration with 16 partners across Europe and the SETI Institute. The deadline for the online submissions is October 7, 2020.

Bridge Technologies, through Australian business partner Techtel, have now completed their integration of the VB440 IP Probe for Nine Network, an Australian free-to-air digital TV service provider. This integration forms a part of Nine’s wider site relocation, involving the creation of a brand new ‘creative campus’ with Internet Protocol technologies incorporated in its core. A key element of Nine’s site development was the choice to change the data backbone of the studio from an SDI-based environment to a fully SMPTE IP-based infrastructure. This will see Nine working on an uncompressed SMPTE 2110 workflow basis, working with on-air graphics, newsroom systems, post-production, network and infrastructure, and live studio elements.
vog.photo It was very different. But it was a huge success. The first hybrid Ars Electronica in the era of Corona. “It wasn’t easy, but it was absolutely the right decision to let the festival take place,” Gerfried Stocker said in a first review. On site, everything went smoothly – the security concept worked, and the requirements were understood and accepted by the audience. And it was virtually sold out, the first “Kepler’s Garden” on the beautiful campus of the Johannes Kepler University Linz. “We offered 3,490 tickets and we issued them all,” Gerfried Stocker is pleased to report. “It’s really great that even in times of a pandemic there are obviously many people who are happy about cultural offerings and take advantage of them in a responsible way.” The Festival Mile in the city center with the OK in Upper Austria’s Kulturquartier (1,664 visitors), the University of the Arts (1,284 visitors) and the Ars Electronica Center (2,223) was well attended and registered 5,171 visitors. Last but not least, the physical presence of 668 artists in Linz was also very gratifying because it’s no longer a matter of course to bring so many people together for an event.
