The ‘Internet of Animals Convention 2019’ (Feb 19-Mar 2) explores the future of animals in a more and more digitalized and virtualized world.

12:00/17:00 open hackathon
Can we improve the life of animals with (data and) AI?
19:00 open think tank
After a quick intro what AI is and what it could mean to animals. Then we will explore from there. Developing new ideas, trying to identify new paradigms, or discussing ethical or philosophical questions. Depending on who is attending: We might even turn to the meta-level of concepts like ‘artificial’ and ‘intelligence’. Do they inhibit our imagination and understanding of what is possible and what is already happening?
The events will be adjusted to the background of the attendants.
All topics are designed as an open platform.

Organize: FUFF

FUFF is an abstract experimental university platform, a complementary idea of research and studying, supporting you to experiment with new forms, new contents, and new goals of studying. It started in the 2000er years as a local project in Frankfurt but since is not bound to a location.

Ifuz started the ‘Internet Of Animals’ project several years ago at FUFF as a spin off from Dirk Engel’s ‘Future of media’ research project. In the beginning it appeared to be an obscure idea, but it is meanwhile received more and more as a project with multiple levels and an evolution of topics.
