Met: Helen Hester, Adeola Enigbokan en Catelijne Muller, een vertoning van Nøtel Cinema (i.s.m. The One Minutes) en een eerder opgenomen interview met Lawrence Lek

Het is geen toeval dat Nøtel (The Hague) zijn (3d-)deuren in Den Haag heeft geopend. De veelgeprezen multimedia-installatie van Lawrence Lek haakt bewust aan bij de ambities van Den Haag als internationale veiligheidshub - een stad die voorloopt op het automatiseren van openbare veiligheid, zowel tegen de stormvloed als tegen ongewenste indringers. Drie academici op het gebied van stedenbouw,  kunstmatige intelligentie, feminisme en cybersecurity (Helen Hester, Adeola Enigbokan en Catelijne Muller) en negen filmmakers (Nøtel Cinema) nemen thema's rond de toekomst van de stad Den Haag onder de loep. Tijdens de conferentie, gevolgd door een borrel, is ook een (eerder opgenomen) interview van curator Lua Vollaard met Lawrence Lek te zien.

She is founder of ALLAI Nederland, and President of the Thematic Study Group on AI of the European Economic and Social Com­mittee. Muller advocates a human-in-command approach to AI, where humans retain control over AI, and over when and how AI is used in our daily lives - what tasks we transfer to AI, how transparent it is, if it is to be an ethical player.
