What does a reality based more and more on artificial intelligence mean? How autonomously do evolving artificial systems operate? What kind of worlds does machine learning encourage?
The exhibition Trials & Errors explores the social and aesthetic implications of artificial intelligence.The participating artists examine, try out, and challenge artificial environments, classification systems, and ways of thinking that are being shaped by machine learning. They focus on the machine learning training process, the role of errors in their continuous optimization, and their influence on humans. Adopting a trial-and-error approach, artists challenge malfunctions, failures, and flaws as a means of understanding automation processes. Using DIY AI tools, shadowy devices, handmade datasets and personal taxonomies, they generate heterogeneous, unstable and unpredictable worlds. As artificial intelligence systems remain largely obscure and opaque, artists' explorations suggest ways to navigate and interpret them.
