Idea #11 from the EYE2018 Report

The EU should invest more in technology applied to the cultural and artistic fields, starting with public museums, to make the experience more inclusive for users. The use of new technologies, in fact, would change the way we visit, explore and learn in traditional museums, making people passionate about culture. Bots are already being used in some museums so that people, in particular young people, can be guided and learn about art and history in a fun way. This could be developed and taken to the next level. I dream of a future where in museums, AI and virtual reality enable visitors to directly interact with historical characters, or plunge into a painting, for instance. In order to support investment in these technologies, part of the traditional tourist taxes, for example from hotels, could be devoted to fund these museums.

1. Why and how would this idea benefit young people? This idea can help young people because we are so involved in the new technologies and it bring us the possibility of having them in the culture or heritage. This way of culture or heritage is more attractive for us. 2. Which groups in society would be impacted by this idea, and how can their different interests be accommodated? The groups that would be affected by this idea in a negative way are people over 30 years old. These people are not as involved in the technologies as young people, so they have to learn how to use this technologies. 3. What would be the practical steps to implement this idea in your town, your region, your country and/or at the level of the EU? This idea can be practice in differents ways. For example, in the museum should use virtual reality glasses and the people can be placed in a specific historical moment and they´re able to know the moment more exhaustively; so the people understand the museum better. The drones can be used to know the architectural works. For example, with a drone you can see spaces of a cathedral that in a photo can´t appear.
