Lisbon Workshop Series - AI Aesthetics and Philosophy of Technology

Diagram and AI-Aesthetics

Anfiteatro da FCiências.ID (com transmissão via Zoom)

What role does diagrammatic perception (aisthesis), diagrammatic manipulation (techné), or diagram construction(poesis) play in aesthetics? Did the aesthetic relation between human beings and machines recently change? Independently of the question if AI will or will never (Smith & Landgrebe 2022) rule the world, we want to ask: How is human creative behavior and issues of aesthetics simulated, co-generated, or mimicked with the help of diagram- technologies and theoretically staged in diagram strategies/dramaturgies in AI aesthetics? If AI is conceived as imitation engine of collective intelligence (“We are AI“H.Herndon), what role do aesthetics and diagram play when considering topics of AI aesthetics, and how could a Peircean account of the diagram elucidate questions about AI aesthetics? How do (collective) aesthetic strategies that work with AI and machine learning tools use diagrammatic typification and simplification, e.g., in generating or applying aesthetic styles? Do artistic strategies of aesthetic blurring, ambiguity, and abstraction via Ai-apps mean more or reduced diagrammaticity? Can diagrams elucidate Machine learning ́s hidden layers (“black boxes”)? Does Ai aesthetic reduce aesthetics complexity to makable design problems (Does Ai aesthetic reduce aesthetics complexity to makable design problems (e.g. design to overcome the uncanny valley, design for social interaction, design for empathy, design of mimetic doubles/automata/human-AI-systems)? Are aesthetic style and design hacking a form of diagramming?

Currently, climate changes or alterations are known to be reflected on the stable isotope ratios of Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Carbon, Oxygen and Sulphur present in atmospheric gas forms, fresh or ocean water, as well as in plants and animals and organic matter in the soil.

The objective of this course is to acquire knowledge regarding bioinformatic tools available to predict nucleic acid (RNA, DNA or Nucleic Acids Mimics) and protein three-dimensional structure, as well as autonomy and critical thinking in the use of those tools.

Science is increasingly more present in our everyday decisions, with a fundamental role in global problems. Scientists, as the main actors in the production of scientific knowledge, have the responsibility of having an active voice in communicating this knowledge.

The course aims at introducing attendants to an updated state of the art of diversity of the soil biota and the functional roles played by soil organisms in key ecological processes.

Symbiosis is a key strategy for life on Earth. Nevertheless, although many research groups have long been committed to the study of symbiosis, its definition and functioning are not fully understood, and its ecological role and relevance are still underestimated.

This 5-day course offers to the participants a light microscopy course focusing on fluorescence microscopy techniques applied to the detection of proteins and glycans in tissue samples and cell cultures.

This course aims to explore ways of communicating science to non-specialized audiences, such as policy makers, industry, general public (including students and teachers), through their engagement and participation in citizen science activities.

A 19 de abril de 2023 celebra-se o 112.º aniversário da Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa.

The objective of this course is to provide students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

The objective of this course is to provide students with statistical knowledge and tools to manipulate, analyze and visualize biological data with R. Introduction to modeling, simulations and Bayesian statistics.

Under the general framework of Global Change Ecology, the goal of this course is to provide the participants with the most recent and practical knowledge on the use of Functional Diversity. This includes the selection of functional traits and calculation of Functional Diversity Indexes.

The course provides essential skills and knowledge that enable the participants to develop climate change adaptation strategies.

Abstract submission will close on 14 November 2022.

The objective of this course is to provide participants with basic knowledge on a) the fundamental aspects of experimental design and b) workflows, platforms and tools to increase reproducibility at all scientific levels.

In this course we will provide advanced hands-on training on some of the most used technological tools in field biology.

The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems. Basic knowledge will be provided through theoretical and practical lessons on how to select and use the most suitable metrics based on the analysis of multiple compartments of the ecosystems.

This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets. It also includes an in-depth review of the different types of data used to measure biodiversity and their problems and limitations.
