In the following note, we archive discussions with people from various fields on the following topics as a project named “Smart City, Fungi and Buddha”.
・Autonomous car, Robotics and AI
・Smart City and Landscape
・The future of design focused on post human-centered Design
・Multi-species Ethnography with various intelligence different from human
・The Art of thinking and living with objects beyond human intelligence
The future is just around the corner when machine intelligence with mobility, such as autonomous cars, robots, and AI, will be all around us. What kind of environment will we be surrounded when they become a part of our lives even if they have simple and limited intelligence.
Just before personal computer and the Internet spread around the world, lots of people discussed about how will these new tools and environments change humanity and what kind of human intelligence will they elicit?
How should we design such a new environment surrounded by moving machine intelligence and live together with such an unfamiliar existence? What kind of physicality and intelligence will be drawn out of this environment, and how will new “human beings” be created? In this project, we will discuss with researchers or designers in various fields, and we hope that our discussions would work as a vehicle leading us to an alternative world.
Its english version project has just begun.
