AI Lab Journeys

Artificial Intelligence and its False Lies

Mika Satomi (JP/AT)

Sat Sep 12, 2020, 3:40 pm - 4:00 pm
All times are given in Central European Summer Time (CEST / UTC +2).

In this tour, Mika walks you through her process of making Artificial Intelligence and its False Lies, from the first questions she had and how one led to the next, to interviewing scientists and finally teaching herself how to make an artificial neural network. She also attempts to explain how neural networks work, because she was shocked to learn there is no actual intelligence inside the black box! She invites two experts, an AI researcher Diana Serbanescu and a craft and techno culture theorist Daniela K Rosner to have a dialog with her on some of the concepts she is exploring in her work.
