AI: More Than Human

Worldwide
A major exhibition on artificial intelligence

The artificial intelligence exhibition AI: More than Human invites you to explore our relationship with artificial intelligence.

This major exhibition explores creative and scientific developments in AI, demonstrating its potential to revolutionise our lives. Bringing together artists, scientists and researchers, this interactive show offers an unprecedented survey of AI with which you are invited to engage head-on.

Universal Everything was commissioned by The Barbican, London to create Future You for AI: More Than Human.

How do you feel when you see a synthetic version of yourself?

In Future You, you are faced with a unique reflection of your potential, synthetic self. Starting as a primitive form, it learns from your movements to adapt, suggesting an agile, superior version of you. This artwork evolves, creating a new visual response for each visitor, generating 47,000 possible variations.

The artificial intelligence exhibition at The Barbican was open 16 May-26 August 2019 and received over 88,000 visitors, making it one of the most successful exhibitions to have been hosted at the Barbican Centre. It is now on an international tour.

  • “A gaggle of nursery tots are enjoying Universal Everything’s Future You, one of the installations at AI: More than Human, the Barbican’s new exhibition on Artificial Intelligence. One by one they stand in front of the screen and delight as the robotic image on it responds to mimic their movements. What changes will these AI natives see in their lifetimes to the impact that AI will have, for better or for worse, on how we live?”
