Connecting the Dots is a science and art exhibition revolving around the world of artificial intelligence.

Marvel at generative art, make music together with a neural network or view yourself from a new angle with the uncanny mirror – the exhibition is sure to offer both inspiring experiences and insight for everyone. It showcases AI-related research and arts made in Aalto in a way that’s easy to approach, yet gives you food for thought. Visitors of all ages are welcome to try out demos, tools and view artistic installations, and learn more about artificial intelligence.

The exhibition, co-organized by the Finnish Centre for Artificial Intelligence (FCAI) and Aalto Digi Platform, is on display in the Dipoli exhibition area until 15 January 2020.
