ARTIFICIAL MACHINES AND ARTISTIC INTELLIGENCE
with Martinus Suijkerbuijk
The workshop departs from a simple premise: it strips the concept of artificial intelligence from all Post-human ideology and redefines the former with art as a paramount feature to access the intelligible. Artistic Intelligence proposes a redefinition of human-machine synthesis that is not dominated by a technological tour de force (technological over-dimensioning), but utilise technologies as expressive instruments to augment the human condition. Artistic intelligence attains a cogitative exchange between research and practice within the triangulation of art, engineering and philosophy that recomposes epistemological models with bespoke machine languages.
Structure of the Workshop:
The workshop will be structured as an Operation Unit or Task Force that centers on infra-disciplinary research (as a becoming of another profession), and starts off with a philosophical training in the concept of Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence. The theoretical part is alternated by live demos and reverse engineering of machine learning applications.
The workshop is not focused on making artists experts in the field of machine learning, but to provide them with sufficient information to imagine alternative futures in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
