Artificial Imagination: art making in the age of the algorithm

  1. Artificial Imagination: art making in the age of the algorithm
    Session One: Indigenous cosmology, art and technology

    Susan Kite and Jackson 2Bears, moderated by Elizabeth Barron.

    This panel considers the relationship between cosmology and electronic and digital technologies. How are histories and cultural ways of knowing and thinking embedded into certain tools? How do artists engage and subvert these embedded cultural elements? If machines are learning, who are they learning from?

    Session Two: the body, sensation, movement and machine intelligence

    Kristin Anne Carlson, Davide Rokeby and Chris Salter, moderated by Nell Tenhaff

    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?

    Session Three: Consciousness and the poetic machine

    Ben Bogart, Sofian Audrey and Allison Parish, moderated by Nora O Morchú

    The third conversation of the day is focused on acts of consciousness and the machine. With much resources invested in the instrumental or problem-solving aspect of artificial intelligence and machine learning, what do we make of the useless parts of the technologies? Scientific thinking tends towards an explanatory model of the universe where everything can be known, but what role does creativity have in a world where everything is known? Will an AI machine be able to recognize its own poetry? Perhaps most importantly, can machines dream and will those dreams matter to us?
