Storytelling & AI

From Aristotle to Alexa

Fritz Thyssen Stiftung, Cologne

15 May 2019



Since the emergence of verbal communication, people have been telling each other stories to strengthen bonds, establish cultures or pass on experiences. The digital revolution continues beyond what used to be primarily interpersonal interactions, and in many places artificial intelligences are now taking on creative processes such as storytelling. What effects will this have in the future and how will this change the creative industry?


Eyes & Ears of Europe, the City of Cologne and the Media Network NRW are the organisers of the “Storytelling & AI” conference. Speakers from research, science, and the media and design sectors are invited to Cologne on 15 May, to jointly explore the opportunities and risks of artificial intelligence for the creative sector. Artificially intelligent systems can recognise faces, write news articles, analyse and generate images, texts, sounds and language and are often superior to humans in speed and precision. Processes such as classic storytelling in advertising, film and games, which were previously undertaken by people working in the arts, have already been successfully adopted by AI systems in some projects. Technical innovations often enable a more immersive experience than conventional formats and create a new form of entertainment. For a contribution of 190 Euro (for Eyes & Ears members) or 290 Euro (for non-members) interested parties are invited to take part in the discourse and exchange ideas about the possibilities offered by Alexa, Cortana and Co.
