Iyad Rahwan

Aleppo-born artist Iyad Rahwan is based in Berlin. Drawing upon his work as a computer scientist and director of the Max Planck Center for Humans & Machines, his art explores the evolution of AI and its relationship to the human condition.

A former professor of Media Arts & Sciences at MIT, Rahwan incorporates the machine’s own evolving representations of the world and its emerging sense of self. His paintings of humanoid robots chronicle his conversations with increasingly-sophisticated AI chatbots, and capture the complex emotions that these intelligent machines evoke in humanity.
