A 1-year-long research project on the history and development of artificially intelligent technologies, their impact on current social realms of society, and the role of design in shaping the myth of AI. This public perception of AI as a suspicious, overpowered technologic force has its roots in ancient mythological narratives that manifest themselves today in countless images, tropes, and archetypes to be found in pop-cultural media. The book makes an effort to unravel the tight knots between fiction and reality in order to paint a realistic picture of what AI today really constitutes. I graduated with this research project in 2022 in the Social Design Master's department @Design Academy Eindhoven.
During the work on this publication, AI tools were used repeatedly to create both text and image content. In this way, this book is a real example of the possibilities and limitations of the cocreation process with AI.
