The presentation and paper titled »Training to Deal with Otherness: rehearsing & maintaining human-machine relations« is the result of the work in three study programs dealing with design and/of technology: the Integrated Design BA and MA program of KISD, the Code & Context program of TH Köln, and the Hybrid Things Lab of TH Augsburg.
The presented projects constitute explorations of the absurdities of automation, the realities of faked automation (or fauxtomation), the hidden human labor behind artificial intelligence, as well as practical approaches towards interactive AI and the complex entanglement of teaching machines and being taught by them.
