Cultural Icons is a web experiment created by artist Gael Hugo that allows you to explore AI generated iconography, engage in cultural conversations with Google's generative language model PaLM2, and challenge your cultural knowledge through games. 

You can click on each cultural icon to start a conversation and learn more or play a guessing game with the help of AI. 

While Google’s generative language model, PaLM2, provides insights into historical events and fun facts, we cannot verify the accuracy of the chat and would recommend checking Google’s AI policy. All images are generated by Google AI.
