Human Data Collection For Artificial Intelligence
An interactive VR installation for HTC Vive with a conversational bot feature. The physical part of the installation is constructed by LED festoons fixed to an orbicular structure hanged from the above. In the VR experience, artificial intelligence is represented by a 3D environment with a text-to-speech voice. The AI interacts with the user via CUI using keyboard and controllers to trigger actions.
Since the first industrial revolution, automation is one of the primary instruments of increasing productivity, i.e. to replace human workforce with task-performing machines. The thermo-mechanical models of the early industrial age have been evolved by now into electro-computational networks of higher complexity, where scripted interactions stake out an ever- growing number of domains and specialist fields. Under the so-called algorithmic capitalism, automation (robotics with automated thought – AI) disrupts a large
segment of the industry and life as we know it: from the self-driving cars reinventing transport, chatbots reinventing friendship, unmanned drones reinventing war, synthetic bodies/persons reinventing human rights, to e-government reinventing politics.
In contrast to the perceived obfuscation in much of the computational protocols today, Training 2038 stages a scenario where people are given a voice to feed back on systems just taking shape. In a safe-space of a private VR experience, an extensive survey is underway in a form of a dialogue played out between an embodied conversational bot and a human user. With no moral conscience, how should an automated decision tree behave?
