In close collaboration with Storythings I had the pleasure of illustrating two short comics for Nesta about applications of AI (artificial intelligence) and CI (collective intelligence), set in the not so distant future.
The complete feature "Minds and machines" contained three stories in total, about detecting deepfake video manipulation (("Fact vs Fiction")), collaborative and personalized health care (("Health in your hands")), and lastly collective design and the future of creativity ("Creativity combined", illustrated by Will Morris). All three stories were written by Leah Moore and John Reppion.
Read the comic on Nesta's feature page via the links above, or scroll down.
"Fact vs Fiction" is about deep fake news and how to detect it quickly to prevent the spread of potentially dangerous misinformation. The story beautifully shows how experts and the community could collaborate in the future to create a robust and fast detection network using AI technology.
"Health In Your Hands" is about smart, personalized healthcare. Could AI, health professionals, patients, and their peers work together in a network to deliver care that is both fast and efficient, but also keeps the human touch?
