platform for digital matter

XLab studies design-related concerns in robotics and artificial intelligence. As a lab for practice-orientated research, we examine the social, economic, and design-related potential of the technologies. We position art and design as a mediating instance and integrative level of knowledge between the technical sciences and the humanities.

We encourage experimental exploration and eagerly welcome critical examination of the socio-technological, ethical, and ecological aspects of the use of artificial intelligence and robotics. Here, future technology is both a tool and a subject of research.

Through joint workshops, individual research projects, and public events, XLab provides a space in which students and associated researchers can test their ideas through development, design, and critical scrutiny. Specific projects are realised in cooperation with external partners and will be communicated beyond BURG     range.
