2050: Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Conflict
An innovative new project is inviting playwrights and writers to submit plays exploring AI’s impact on conflict and warfare.
How with AI change the nature of human endeavour?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming increasingly important for the future of our society – and is bound to change the twenty-first century human experience, including security and conflict.
RUSI and the Atlantic Council are exploring the future of the twenty-first century human experience and the role of AI in a one-day immersive, multidisciplinary event in collaboration with Central Saint Martins, at the Platform Theatre, King’s Cross. The event will bring together relevant expert communities and the wider public to share the same theatre space in an immersive, inclusive and interactive experience.
We are looking for playwrights and writers to enter a contest calling for 10-minute plays exploring AI’s impact on conflict and warfare that are adapted from and inspired by the military science-fiction story A Visit to Weizenbaum, by Jamie Metzl.
The winner’s work will be featured during the event, in which the creative, policy and innovation communities to discuss the many issues surrounding AI: technology, ethics, philosophy, sociology and, ultimately, the meaning of human nature.
The contest’s final judge will be George Brant, a playwright whose award-winning work includes GROUNDED, which won the 2016 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Production for its production at the Public Theatre in New York and has been widely performed in both the UK and the US.
