Der Workshop zu Women Reclaiming AI lädt die Teilnehmerinnen ein, einen alternativen AI Voice Assistant zu entwickeln, konzepiert von einer wachsenden Gemeinschaft von Personen, die sich als Frauen definieren (trans, intersex und cis) und von nicht-binären, agender- und gender variant Personen.
Birgitte Aga (NO) & Coral Manton (UK)
The work of artist-technologist duo Birgitte Aga and Coral Manton manifests as collaborative workshops, events and installations aimed at(re)claiming conversational Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems as a medium for protest. It critiques the commercial pursuit of humanising AI technologies and challenges the bias, stereotyping and pervasive influence embedded within. By activating the public, Aga and Manton re-write and re-imagine the cultural myths of AI and robotics, creating alternative technology-mediated futures.
Their most recent work is Women Reclaiming Ai (2019), an expanding activist art-work, presented as a feminist AI voice assistant, programmed through workshops by a growing community of self-identifying women, and The Infinite Guide (2018), a speculative art work and research project, powered by a conversational AI, (LSTM Recurrent Neural Net), trained on a biased and non-diverse data-set.
