AI: More than Human exhibition to open 22 January 2021...

World Museum will start 2021 with an exhilarating exhibition, AI: More than Human which will explore the fascinating world of artificial intelligence through prominent and cutting-edge research projects, and special commissions by international artists. Tickets for this exhibition are now on sale. A mesmerising yet complex topic, the exhibition will start with a historical context, looking at Japanese Shintoism and will work its way through to remarkable developments from the 1940s to the present day.

While this is an interactive exhibition, with the aim of transporting visitors into a futuristic world, the museum (like all other public settings) has been greeted by a changed world which has undoubtedly affected the way museums are run – which now includes integrating COVID19 health and safety hygiene regulations as a priority,
Please find below a list of changes we have made to ensure all visitors can safely enjoy the exhibition. We have introduced additional cleaning measures in the exhibition space, in particular by the interactive stations. This is in addition to the guidelines already in place within the venue itself.

  • Interactive exhibits where there is ‘human’ touch required, will be cleaned every 15mins (dependant on the level of visitor interaction).
  • Timed and limited entry slots so visitors, including members and volunteers will need to book a timed slot in advance.
  • There are approximately 13 hand sanitiser stations within the exhibition space.
  • The space has been designed to allow for adequate social distancing.

Anne Fahy, Head of World Museum comments: “COVID19 has meant that we have had to make changes in our venue but making sure that our visitors have a memorable visit is equally important. The team has worked tirelessly in making sure we don’t lose valuable content or the connection between people and art.”

“The safety of our staff and visitors is our number one priority and that is why the added hygiene regime integrated within the exhibition is vital. We’ve all had to adapt to these evolving challenges – but we hope the buzz and excitement of a museum experience is still present.”

Come and explore the many facets of artificial intelligence and learn more about our relationship with technology and the natural world, medicine, art, society and even video games! Tickets for Ai: More than Human are now on sale.
