Artificial Intelligence: Power and Opacity of Intelligent Systems.

18th October 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


AI is a transformative algorithmic tool that allows its creators and users to make PREDICTIONS through different AI TECHNIQUES such as machine learning and neural networks. There is a conflict with AI around AI BIASED if the data used to train the algorithm contains biased information. AI has been used in ARTS and many ARTISTS work in AI such as Mario Klingemann and Refik Anadol are two examples.

Automation – from supermarket checkouts to trading algorithms, factory robots to self-driving cars – increasingly threatens human employment. As the capabilities of machines increase, more and more professions become obsolete, with artificial intelligence augmenting the process. One of the keys to this augmented inequality is the opacity of technological systems themselves (Bridle, 2018).
Humans see the results of machines, but due to complexity and a large amount of data (for instance millions of images), are at the moment unable to see the processes of these successes. AI has been developed following psychological laws based on connectivity, but disregarding subjectivist perceptions of the world. Their potential is leading a revolution. Therefore, the cooperation between humans and machine turns out to be a more potent strategy than the most powerful computer alone (Bridle, 2018).
