Deep Listening of Climate Imaginaries - Opportunities for GenAI in Communicating Climate Futures

Monday 15 April 2024
France : Campus Grand Paris

The seminar is organized by the SKEMA Center for Artificial Intelligence (SCAI).

The use of storytelling, art, and multimedia communications is seen as vital in understanding and communicating environmental crises and reimagining responses to climate change. Climate imaginaries serve as important tool in understanding and communicating the current environmental crises from various perspectives, and in helping to reimagine better futures.  
However, we’re accustomed to seeing dominant ways of imagining the future, like ‘business as usual’ (projected future), ‘technology will fix everything’ (technocratic future), or ‘we are doomed’ (collapse future). These visions can leave communities feeling that action is meaningless. How can we empower communities to imagine the future differently, on their own terms?  
The advent of generative AI has significantly increased the accessibility of representation tools to the broader public. What are the opportunities for generative AI in supporting Deep Listening of climate futures - enhancing communities' capacity to listen to scientific data and institutions' capacity to listen to communities' climate imaginaries?

The event will take place in room 3.216 of the Campus du Grand Paris and by Teams​.

Speaker : Yihyun Lim, Assistant professor University Southern California and Former Director MIT Design Lab
Discussant : Yves Lostanlen, president EMEA of AI Redefined and Founder SSENSEI Advisory
