The Relayer Group creates opportunities that bring innovation and technology to consumers of all ages through enriching and educational experiences.

The Relayer Group is overseen by HP Newquist. As a museum director and content developer, Newquist has produced numerous award-winning books, traveling exhibits, and documentaries for over 30 years. He is the former editor and publisher of Artificial Intelligence Trends, the first publication dedicated to the commercial application of AI. He is a frequent speaker on topics ranging from technology to entertainment, and is the author of over two dozen non-fiction books including The Brain Makers, the definitive history of the early AI industry and The Great Brain Book, the winner of the National Science Teachers Association “Outstanding Science Book” award. He is the recent winner of two 2018 awards for science writing from the NSTA and the CBC.

Building on its history of AI reporting and the success of its traveling exhibits, The Relayer Group is utilizing this expertise to create an exhibition that brings artificial intelligence to museums in an engaging and accessible way. We have a proven museum track record, having produced the hugely successful science-of-sound exhibit, “GUITAR: The Instrument that Rocked the World.” Launched in 2011, it has been fully booked for the past 7 years

We create opportunities to connect with consumers of all ages through enriching experiences that extend well beyond the venue walls.

To learn more about the details of “AI: Your Mind & The Machine” and how you can get involved as a sponsor or museum, please contact us:



The interactive and multimedia elements explore major themes related to artificial intelligence. We will be working with sponsors to select specific content in the following areas:

• How computers and digital devices are taught to learn and behave like humans
Concepts ranging from simple binary code to deep learning are presented in order to show how “thinking”—and other human behaviors—are transformed into machine activity.

• The reality of modern-day thinking machines and futuristic companions
Two dozen kiosks will display examples of current AI technology. They will employ elements including games and videos to demonstrate underlying concepts—including definitions and descriptions of “general AI” vs “narrow AI.”

• Minds and machines: The fundamental differences and essential similarities when solving problems
Visitors will get to employ the brain’s problem solving methods—using intuition and reasoning—and see how an intelligent computer system operates using logic programming and training methods.

• Getting To AI: Smart machines in history, mythology, and popular culture
Cultural artifacts including books, videos, and film posters will show how the concept of human-like machines has evolved over thousands of years.

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

Encourage AI understanding, exploration, engagement, and ethical practices.
