This panel addresses notions of the body, sense and consciousness. If our body is essential for our perception of the world, what happens to the perception of an intelligent thing without a body or at least a distributed body? What does creative movement and expression look like when it is authored by an intelligent machine? Whether as a thing separate from us or as something we wear or even something inside us, can and/or how we co-create with an intelligent machine?
This panel was presented as part of
Artificial Imagination: art making in the age of the algorithm
This symposium brought together a group of cutting edge artists working with new technologies to discuss and share their experiences, their practices and their perspectives on algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning. It was an exchange of ideas among them and with the public, and articulated a unique artistic perspective on the pressing conversations unfolding around our new machine collaborators.
This symposium was funded in part by project funding from the Canada Council for the Arts.
Join us as Macy Siu gives us the lowdown on another development from the Digital Economies Lab – the Offer/Need Machine. In an era where the gig economy has monetized every informal network from ride sharing to pet sitting, the Offer/Need Machine proposes a network of decentralized reciprocity. Pay close attention to when Siu explains the need for an anti-capitalist model and more-than-human design.
