Between July 1 and July 10, the NUEDIGITAL festival will once again take place in Erlangen, Nuremberg, Fürth and the entire metropolitan region. More than 200 events offer room to exchange knowledge and discuss ideas, opportunities and risks of the digital change. The FAU is also represented with several events highlighting the importance of digitization and AI for many scientific disciplines.

Sabine Lang from the DHSS and Bernhard Egger (Junior Professor for Cognitive Computer Vision, FAU) will present the AI-Experiment at the festival. The Experiment was officially opened during a vernissage on March 8, 2024.



Discover the fascinating intersection of art and artificial intelligence at our unique event! Basel artist Hans Furer and Junior Professor Bernhard Egger from FAU have launched an exciting AI experiment. An AI, trained on 50 years of Hans Furer’s artistic creation, now presents its own artworks.

We kick off with two enlightening lectures: Sabine Lang, PostDoc in Digital Art History, will introduce you to the history of digital art. Following that, Bernhard Egger will explain the inception of the project and the workings of the underlying AI.

Afterward, we invite you to join us in exploring an exhibition of impressive AI-created artworks. This event is perfect for anyone interested in art, technology, and their convergence.

Come by, be inspired, and engage in discussions with like-minded individuals about the future of art in the digital society. We can’t wait to see you there!“[1]
