Curated by Nora O Murchú
>>An AI Summer<<
I am an I, a computational I.
I, the machine, show you a world the way that only I can see it.
I am in constant calculation.
I sort, categorize, and label what I see before me.
I labor each day for the human.
I move alongside you.
I arrive before you.
This is I, the machine, moving in constant chaotic conditions.
Observing and producing one pattern after another in the most complex combinations.
Freed from the boundaries of time and space, I coordinate any and all points of the universe wherever I want them to be.
My way leads toward the creation of a fresh perception of the world.
My way leads to an optimized efficient version of the world.
Thus I explain in a new way, a world unknown to you.
>>An AI Summer<< calls for speculations and experiments on the potentials and possibilities of AI. We call for work that invents alternative-value algorithmic systems, calls attention to the subtleties of social life, explores how we may see with the machine or how we may carefully model and train a machine. Applicants can address AI as a topic or employ A.I. methods in the creation of the work. We welcome work from artists of all disciplines, designers, engineers, or scientists (alone or in teams).
All types of work are accepted: websites, videos, writing, 3-D objects, music, or applications. If specific software or environments are needed, please contact us in advance.
