In this talk-workshop we will stop to examine the factors involved in the creation process (cultural, technological sovereignty and environmental) of these tools and our ability to act in the face of certain AI processes, over the power of these algorithms to amaze us. At the end of the activity, we will obtain a series of images created collectively and in collaboration with the machine, which will summarize the analysis carried out.

Aimed at: general public interested in artificial intelligence analysis. No technical knowledge is required.
