What does artificial intelligence (AI) look like? Searching online, the answer is likely streams of code, glowing blue brains or white robots with men in suits.
These misleading representations of AI are used for everything from news stories and advertising to personal blogs. These stereotypes can negatively impact public perceptions of AI by giving people unrealistic expectations of technologies. Imagery of AI often excludes global perspectives and this lack of diversity can amplify inequalities in society.
Visualising AI commissions artists from around the world to create more diverse and accessible representations of AI, inspired by conversations with scientists, engineers, and ethicists at Google DeepMind.
AI can transform our world for the better. Diversifying the way we visualise these emerging technologies is the first step to expanding the wider public’s vision of what AI can look like today and become tomorrow.
Since launching, Visualising AI has commissioned 13 artists to create more than 100 artworks, gaining over 100 million views, 800,000 downloads, and our imagery has been used by media outlets, research and civil society organisations.
All artworks are openly available so anyone can download images and motion graphics free-of-charge.
Explore new ways of visualising AI:
By giving artists complete creative freedom, they explore unconventional and challenging interpretations of AI from their unique perspective.
The artworks illustrate key themes in AI connected to new research, technologies or real-world impact.
Each piece opens up a new route into understanding a complex subject – from artificial general intelligence (AGI) and robotics to sustainability and generative AI.
With the many different forms AI takes, we need a more diverse and accessible picture of how AI can impact society. We look forward to exploring these possibilities through Visualising AI and engaging more people to shape what AI looks like in the world.
“AI will be transformative for society and opens up a huge range of possible futures. Google DeepMind is proud to have partnered with artists from around the world to explore these futures.”
