About Experiential AI

Experiential AI is a new research theme and group at Edinburgh Futures Institute. It aims to support the creation of artistic works using machine learning algorithms and robotics, and to inspire new concepts and paradigms on ethical and responsible AI. Experiential AI develops research on AI futures, science, art and ethics through collaborations with artists, festivals and the AI community.

Edinburgh is the world’s foremost festival city, and has been a centre for AI research since the early 1960s. These two strengths combine to create a fertile environment for work on art and AI.
