“What does it mean if algorithms are something that isolate us and connect us? How can we better understand what AI is, and how can we be more inclusive in terms of the way we’re designing it?”
Lance Weiler, Project Leader. In Columbia University School of Arts interview.
Inspired by the 200th anniversary of Shelley’s seminal text, this participatory installation explores our relationship to the ubiquitous and emerging technology of artificial intelligence. Participants are prompted to reveal their memories, emotions, fears, and hopes to an AI while it attempts to learn about humanity from those who participate.
The project sits at the intersection of machine intelligence and human creativity, exploring how AI can be used as a creative collaborator. Bringing together close to 20 creative technologists and artists, the AI acts as the nerve center of the experience, coordinating across visualization, sound, and dance.
