In an increasingly parameterised world, where algorithms make decisions in countless aspects of our lives such as work, leisure or health, the exhibition “Codes & Algorithms. Wisdom in a calculated world” seeks to make this phenomenon and its implications understandable, generating questions and knowledge that invite reflection and debate.

Through interactive installations by 12 artists, the exhibition traces a journey through different areas in which algorithms impact our society: the importance of their neutrality and efficiency, the risks of algorithmic bias, tools to protect data privacy, the link between humans and artificial intelligence, and their contribution to finding solutions that would otherwise take years to solve or decipher.

Organised on the occasion of the Spanish Presidency of the EU, the exhibition is linked to The Future of Living project, a cultural programme of EUNIC BRUSSELS, designed to promote critical and creative reflection on the increasing automation of our lives, work and social spaces.
