"Everyone is talking about it, but hardly anyone knows what it exactly is and how it works: AI. That applies to the technology as well as to social, cultural and countless other aspects. We lack an overall, a holistic view, but only based on such a view we can balance opportunities and risks - and figure out the set of rules we need for our dealings with the technology and the guardrails that should bind the providers of the technology". Matthias Hornschuh pronounced these words during the opening event of SoundTrack_Cologne 20. The keynote was a preview of the seven AI-related panels taking place at the congress.

"Applying artificial intelligence (AI) to generate creative and valuable outputs is far from a novel concept. However, only in recent years have we witnessed large scale release and adoption of AI tools capable of generating high-quality content in written, image, video, and sound formats". This idea was the main core of the keynote presented by Prof. Dr. Francisco Tigre Moura at the opening ceremony of STC. Tigre Moura described how the AI have been developing since more of half century but growing sensacionally in the last few years, and how this "fast adoption of tools" is challenging paradigms in sectors such as the arts.
