HOW CAN WE LEVERAGE ROBOTS & AI TO expand humans creative potential?

Robots, AI & Creativity is the fourth edition of The Future Innovation Lab, whose goals is to generate use cases with emerging technologies to build a better future. This year's challenge is to explore how AI technology and robots can become our best allies to power the next generation of creatives by exploring the new possibilities that are being brought to the table.

IMPORTANT: unlike most of our programs, this time we are launching an open call for

IDEAS, although you can also apply as TALENT.


You can submit an idea individually or as a team. Teams need to be of 3 people; a creative (any background), a designer and a technologist, so if you apply as a team, make sure your team cover all the profiles. If you submit an idea as an individual and your idea is selected, will help you build a team.


If you do not have any idea but wish to participate, you will have the opportunity via a matchmaking process to join one of the selected ideas once they are announced February 12th. If you submit an idea and it is not selected, we will offer you the opportunity to participate of the match making as talent.

About NewImages Festival (
Since its creation in 2018, the NewImages Festival is structured around 3 main lines – gather, exchange and support all stakeholders of digital creation and virtual worlds – which have become constitutive of the festival’s DNA. In order to embody at best these values, the festival proposes every new edition to take on a challenge: offer for 5 days a programme representing the richness of the sector of digital and immersive creation, and all the mutations which it undergoes !
→ Each year, the first free days of the festival are specifically dedicated to professionals: the Industry Days offers an extensive programme of workshops, panel discussions and keynote presentations about digital and immersive creation and technologies, meanwhile the XR Market allows participants to meet and promote a wide diversity of projects - in development or completed.
→ During the entire festival, XR experiences selected through our XR Competition and XR Out-of-Competition open calls are showcased in the festival venue(s).
