Artificial intelligence, machine learning and algorithms now permeate almost all areas of a technologised society.

Gold Extra invites you to a workshop dedicated to the topic of "AI - potential, practice & dangers".

The audio installation explores the complex relationship between technology and tradition: ancient tradition meets ancient AI.

The interactive installation ChatGT - do while() human dreams, (GT for Georg Trakl) created by Tobias Hammerle, offers a bridge between artificial intelligence and literary art, inspired by the melancholic works of Georg Trakl.

It's this time of the year again: The new BRIEFS call is out! This year under the motto "DEATH". So if you have always dreamed about developing a game about death, this is just the right opportunity to do so. 

The questions/answers cover various aspects of applying to Briefs, including eligibility, experience requirements, development timelines, legal considerations, and the judging process. They also address specific inquiries about game types, engines, financial concerns, and ways to improve one's chances of selection.
