Rising Together – Reimagining Human-AI Co-Creation through Encountering the (Sour)dough


Exploring human-AI collaboration raises vital questions: Can genuine co-creation occur if we can’t express our emotional core? Is it fair to engage AI without mutual understanding? At this hands-on sourdough kneading session, we delve into these questions, using the act of bread preparation as a starting point.

Navigating the realm of human-AI co-creation prompts pressing questions: Can we truly co-create with AI if we can’t articulate the emotional core underpinning our actions? As we acknowledge this chasm between AI and human realities, we must reflect on the ethics of the collaboration. Is it equitable to involve AI in this co-creative process without attaining a mutual understanding? Join us for this experimental workshop – a participatory kneading session – where we’ll explore these questions further, using the tactile and collaborative process of sourdough preparation as our guiding metaphor.

This event is part of Days of AI Prague.
