A little taste of what to expect at Curiocity Brisbane in 2023
Cat Royale created by Blast Theory*
Making its Australian debut, Blast Theory’s Cat Royale explores the impacts Artificial Intelligence has on our everyday existence and our growing dependence on this technology.
You are invited to experience the lives of three cats livestreamed direct from the UK living in a purpose-built luxury home environment with a robot, controlled by an autonomous system to create a utopia for them.
Watch as the happiness levels of our feline friends is captured by AI who then controls the conditions of the room while attempting to maximise the cats contentment and satisfaction. The computer system will slowly learn and adapt to the cats’ behaviours and create the perfect environment for our favourite furry mates.
The full World Science Festival 2023 program will be announced Wednesday 1 February 2023.
Curiosity got you?! The 2023 artworks will be on show for 12 days throughout four precincts during Curiocity Brisbane 2023: South Bank, South Brisbane’s Cultural Centre, City Botanic Gardens, and the Brisbane CBD.
To ensure the comfort and safety of the cats, experts in animal welfare have been involved in the design of Cat Royale from the start and are guiding the project throughout all phases of Cat Royale.
