The joint project invites you to a multidisciplinary dialogue. Central topics in the field of linguistics are language acquisition, language processing and translation as well as linguistic communication between humans and AI. From the topic of bias, aspects such as cognitive processing, human error, discrimination and data protection are discussed, as well as AI that eliminates or reinforces human prejudices. Creativity through algorithms as well as copyright and censorship are the focus for the area of creativity. And the topic of media deals with aspects such as the use of private data for political polarization, propaganda and advertising as well as the future of deepfakes and similar media manipulation.
The aim of EthicAI is to open up a cross-genre space for critical discussions in Southeastern Europe.
EthicAI is a project of the Goethe Institutes in Athens, Bucharest, Ankara, Sarajevo, Sofia and Zagreb.

Festival Of Spooky Action At A Distance e⁻lektron
In the second Festival Of Spooky Action At A Distance e⁻lektron will continue the explorations on the field of transdisciplinary performing arts.
The artists and scientists participating in the festival will look into how the virtual and physical space affects each other both directly and indirectly. We invite artists to present their thoughts and works in the context of the phenomena of the spooky action at a distance which was first described and named by Albert Einstein.
Our hope is that whoever you are and wherever you are you’ll think about it and say "Indeed, I do have few notions about this particularly confusing thought".
Festival Of Spooky Action At A Distance 2021 will present works of Hiroaki Umeda, Rimini Protokoll, Kannabinõid, Rourou Ye, Inga Salurand, Liis Vares, Bohdana Korohod, Hendrik Kaljujärv, Maria Paiste, 5 Horses, Artjom Astrov, +aave+, Samuli Tanner, ASUNA, Zahir, Ringhold, Allison Costa, Feli Navarro, Umlilo Siya Ngcobo, Anu Realo, Andi Hektor, Ott Karulin, Märten Rattasepp, Andrus Laansalu, Andrus Aaslaid, Mary Notari, Dorin Cucicov, Lori Hepner, Grigoriy Sergeev and more.
