This year is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Herbert A. Simon, a Nobel laureate in economics and artificial life visionary. Building on his visionary work, The New York Times's T Brand Studio collaborated with UBS and MediaVest to create a multimedia interactive project looking into the current state and future of artificial intelligence (AI). Entitled “AI: What It Takes to Be Human,” the project links to the work of Simon and UBS’s Nobel Perspectives marketing initiative. At STATE you will have the opportunity to browse the web and explore each part of the project, including interactive timeline featuring key dates in the development of AI, with original photos documenting its history, articles and Q+A’s with key experts in the field of AI and a short documentary on the world's leading humanoid designer, Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro from Osaka, Japan.
