    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming one of the highly politicised topics in societies all over the world, where concerns of its impacts on societal values, rights and culture is discussed and attempted secured through new policies (e.g. the recent EU AI Act). In my PhD project, I will explore the ‘political life’ of AI as it unfolds both in discourse and in concrete design practices. I will so from an STS-approach and through three or more case studies in different media and cultural institutions in Europe.
