What happens to the human when he or she has permanent and unlimited access to information? Is his/her personality still recognizable? What happens when the uncertain disappears? The Free Man – with AI is an experiment on Human asking – machine answering. Follow the conceptual character ƒ in his everyday dialogues with his AI assistant.

Was passiert mit dem Mensch bei permanenten und unlimierten Zugang zu Infor- mationen? Ist die Persönlichkeit noch erkennbar? Was passiert, wenn das Ungewisse verschwindet?
Der Freie Mensch – mit KI experimentiert das Dispositiv Mensch fragt – Maschine antwortet. Wir folgen der konzeptuellen Figur ƒ in seinen alltäglichen Dialogen mit seiner KI Assistentin.
