On August 9th, "A long night of dreaming about The Future of Intelligence" will take place at the Basecamp as part of the Locarno Film Festival. From sunset to sunrise, we will talk, learn and dream together about possible futures of intelligence. Together with artists, researchers and cinephiles, we will explore how different forms of intelligence manifest themselves today, how they might change in the future and which role cinema can play in rendering them visible. The long night of dreaming consists of conversations, workshops and performances. It is a successor of The 24h long conversation on The Future of Attention at LFF75.
