Artificial Intelligence: Your Mind & The Machine

There is no modern technology as talked about as artificial intelligence. AI is in the headlines, it’s in our computing devices, and it is a pervasive topic when pondering our future. AI is at once exciting, wondrous, mysterious, misunderstood, praised, and feared.

People are reading about it in the news and hearing about its use in an ever-growing number of consumer products, but they are not discovering what artificial intelligence really is, how it works, what it can do, and what it might do.

Children aren’t taught about AI in schools, and adults in the workplace aren’t typically instructed in ways that they can use AI. Their primary exposure to what makes artificial intelligence work is through science fiction in all its media forms (movies, TV, books, etc.). These kids and their families also happen to be some of the most frequent attendees of museums.

AI: The Exhibit presents a unique opportunity to educate people of all ages about artificial intelligence. In doing so, it will inspire them to find out more about AI, and perhaps investigate how AI will be part of their future—as end users and even as developers. No other hands-on experience is attempting to bring the reality of AI directly to the people who will be using it, and possibly creating it, in the years to come.



There is no field of science or technology as exciting as Artificial Intelligence (AI). Using hands-on interactives, touchscreens, and examples from history and popular culture, “Artificial Intelligence: Your Mind & The Machine” gives visitors of all ages an up-close look at exactly what thinking machines are . . . and what they might become.

“AI: Your Mind & The Machine” is a traveling exhibit that shows visitors how artificial intelligence is relevant to their lives right now. Dozens of interactives, illusions, and videos make this the perfect STEAM exhibit to introduce children and adults to the technology. With a strong focus on tactile interactives including sliders, blocks, cylinders, puzzles, and clipboards, visitors learn how AI programs work. Touchscreens allow them to experience how AI learns and behaves.

From illusions that fool computers on to machines that can identify their surroundings and translate languages, the exhibit features dozens of ways that our brains and computers interact with the world. It also explains how our brains and AI will work together in the future.

• People are curious about the reality and relevance of AI in their lives.
• The exhibit has multigenerational appeal across visitors of all ages who want to learn about AI technology.
• Teachers are excited about showing students working examples of Artificial Intelligence.
• The topic is so relevant that it is a big draw for media—which is eager to cover the pop culture connections, since much of the general public equates AI with sci-fi movies (
The Terminator, The Matrix, 2001, Star Wars).

Visitors will engage with actual applications and videos that demonstrate AI—and explain how it works—including:

• Deep Learning
• Neural Networks
• Computer Vision
• Pattern Recognition
• Natural Language
• Prediction
• Pattern Matching
• Self Learning
• Self Guidance
• Expert Systems

The AI Exhibit will present the current science and technology that underlies AI, from machine learning to voice recognition. This exhibit will give visitors an up-close look at exactly what thinking machines are . . . and
what they might become.

“Artificial Intelligence: Your Mind & The Machine” is designed to appeal to visitors of all ages presenting technology in easy-to-understand terms with accessible games and hands-on interactives. In the exhibit kids and adults explore what “smart machines” are and how they work. They also learn that the concept of man-made intelligence popularized by Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” has been around for thousands of years. Visitors will get to interact with numerous examples of practical AI: computers translating stories into different languages an “intelligent piano player” that helps make any person sound like a virtuosoa real-time AI “painter” that creates real-time images of visitors in different classical art styles applications that try to guess visitors’ emotions and ages software that recognizes objects around it and much more.bition, and more information about our schedule will be posted soon.
