Speakers of the conference “Les Futurs Fantastiques" 2021


Marion Carré

Co-founder and President of Ask Mona

Keynote - 9 December 2021

Marion Carré

As a business woman, teacher, speaker, author, and artist alike, Marion Carré explores in many ways the relationships between art and artificial intelligence (AI).

She started dealing with this subject when she co-founded Ask Mona in 2017. Ask Mona is an innovative company that uses AI technologies to renew the way cultural institutions engage the audience and to make cultural and heritage content more available.

To complement this activity, she progressively investigated these issues in a theoretical way, and shares her views via lectures, teaching activities (Sciences Po Paris, CELSA-Paris Sorbonne, Aivancity) and a book entitled Propos sur l’art et l’intelligence artificielle. Artiste en devenir? published in march 2020.

She also explores such an art/AI dialectic through artistic works. She’s currently involved in a one-year artist-in-residence program organised around the topic “Archives and AI” by the Goethe-Institut Glasgow (GIG), the Alliance Française Glasgow (AFG), the Institut Français d’Ecosse (IFE), in partnership with the National Library of Scotland.
