tv Arts.21 - Is our future AI Deutsche Welle January 4, 2022 7:30am-8:01am CET
blue, a cars carried by flooding, effects of climate change, i mean, felt worldwide before a station in the rain forest continued. carbon dioxide emissions have risen again. young people over the world are committed to climate protection. what impact will because change doesn't happen on its own. make up your own mind. d. w. made for mines. mm. mm. marty mazda is the old. this fear that we don't know what this new technology will bring up.
we've grown up with technology with an algorithmic methods inventory mod mazda cache shocking how transparent we are. both with artificial intelligence is pretty much everywhere and it can be helpful. but how creative can machine learning b, where are the limits and what are the dangers? an exhibition and they should gain a museum and dressed and gives us answers about a i and explains how it all began. plus a pioneer of algorithm art shows us how creative machines can be. and a, i even makes music using algorithms and rivers to compose amazing sounds. but 1st,
how transparent are we for a i? what do the data trails we leave behind on the internet to say about us? an unsettling experiment in the documentary made to measure the scaffolding, nanine negotiation as a feeler, that nevada, it's 20 years of the was i transitions. i'm at google to get done dementia. we can predict the country in volition switched and from the loan from mentioned mc no, the leading clicks for has added. it's not a secret. the giant tech companies like google collect our data at how far they really go. and can we grasp it emotionally in the documentary made to measure the artist group law all coon, from berlin and vienna. help us experience this through a surprising experiment. rusty's adopt invoke as you go on. sorry, we wanted to take
a closer look at our daughter being collected daily by google and facebook, and what it actually says about us. now we decided to explore that with a kind of artistic data experiment where we posed the question and it can reconstruct a person's life story based on their data sets. vic without ever having met them before. that's what we tried to do. walk as in hub on the something else probably it. ringback ringback ringback the film follows the artist journey from the creation of a facebook add 2 years ago with a us for non em us data donations. ringback ringback ready they then breathe life into the stories behind the data by using an actress. the common element i all 3 of us have a background in theater. and our goal was to find a way how to reproduce a person just by using their data. and we asked an actress to fill in the gaps from google searches, with her acting skills smithy own social oh, if as luna and dorothy giddens washington, these look in novi,
mood pleased him only knowledge because they used dancing from them. austrian woman, the group pied viennese actress natalie koobooley as the doppelganger, usually information from the dancer. they created a film sit in which she took on a new life and played in recreated scenes or non gotta sign of a gig. and then we introduced the woman who donated her donna to her double gang on . and her life story was told to her by the actress who of course never really led this reconstructed lion. but she made it sound real that down to the last detail, the others had failed at head as he escalate business. let's the other type in the documentary we see the 2 women sitting across from each other for the 1st time, a blind date with an increasingly oppressive intensity. hello, dee had me done at seal it bessy clout that it's been as
a even allowed cleaning command in the whole it upon the still follows the donors live from her 1st waitressing job to training is a pastry chef to her nervous breakdown. the film left is speechless and shocked. the views are to my anger the daunting sitting that the 3 artist came up with is so realistic that the embodiment of the data feels like a true story. it triggers the view is to think, can such a story also be created from our data? and could we avoid our data being collected by using a different search engine, or by deleting our facebook account, they put them on the oven if one tries to escape data collection by not having a google account because there is a very, very high probability that these giant tech companies have other ways to collect our data yet for an amazon that somebody in ions annette for example, when we open our smartphone apps,
they track uses and share data with companies like google out and buy the game andes of wasn't that garden. google. on the projects website, one can have an interactive experience. it's possible to get involved in the experiment and see how it works. a much more daring experience than just watching a film. the participant answers questions about the donor in the film. and while doing so, the website collects their data at the end, they receive a shocking profile of themselves as he m at what we're trying to show on our website is something that is never been done elsewhere and not just being observed, but that we are also being observed, while we're observing this, read an agreeable obama, that's fine, but all button pages is denny and part of the system. it is the interesting thing. nothing. we must live like the system to try to design for it that is about being able to get young decibel about ourselves, kind of like an participant, that you left trails. i data thing she and you know that she had left the image.
that was the scariest part. like i'm kind of, i looked at her day to renew, we were looking at something she indiana and i know about herself as if vice eating disorders, depression, a life in crisis. when confronted with the daughter, the participant was overwhelmed. 11th was, was not home for any village left. the intimate nature of the art project made to measure gives it a highly political effect. cuss the dog safety with. and does this for once? does that also al conclusion from this experiment? i know that a very, very big question needs to be put on politics in europe, because currently there is no control over dot to trade in thought. take, for example, the so called real time bidding was where real time data packages and our personal profiles i being traded to data brokers as soon as cuts,
nobody really knows what these data brokers actually do with this information. these a data broker engagement isn't for months when the only advice the artist could give us about our online behavior. windsurfing is to minimize cookie settings. to the bare minimum. we don't really have any other alternatives, at least not yet. ah, how was a i developed questions and answers about its beginnings, opportunities and risks at an exhibition, in the deutsch, as he gained museum, this chauffeur. never speak. nor does it swear. this is a computer that can make practical decisions, left, right, stop all, go. based on calculating countless and i, it is an autonomous vehicle. it's decision making process is better than any humans . it's not witchcraft. it is simply a, i say we are taught at delays dental hygiene museum into the artificial
intelligence is a technical nerd. in the sense that a machine and a i system can solve a certain task in a very precise, cheap and quick manner to offer under certain circumstances. it can even do it much better than humans, but it can only do that one task. im no design off color. the exhibition a i machine, his lin, human dreams explores how humans have been searching for clever servants for centuries. the automation chance play was an 18th century fake chess playing machine, maneuvered by a clever man hidden inside. oh, after the exhibitions introduction we enter the exercise room. the read neural network connects artworks and installations that show how a i is created. busy the benchmark is the marvelous brain. busy busy the method is machine learning the computer with an enormous memory lens to link information, almost like a brain, as if it were thinking independently. oh,
extra lot of it does from so in this exhibit to principal object recognition and yield networks is as play out of the act. won't i become up? for example, when we put an object under the camera, we see how the object is detected by the camera and pass through the different layers of the neural network. doors lived. this results in the ability to detect the object. dad is of the act a conduit. so it's a training station the intelligence system has not yet finished learning. this any straits that a i can only do what it has been taught, but still it's becoming more common. ringback this is lauren, a friend, as a personality, like you and i. why johnny's a cat over here. my freeze cost entry and using is interactions to determine patterns and a barrier itself. currently i can react to need to feelings that this kind of uses
in no way comparable to deep fakes, which are much more sinister. i am a fake bear, a d fake to be precise. and as you can see, even ivy prime minister can be affected by them. there's the unregulated power of technology is like this risk fueling, this information eroding trust and compromising baghdad. democracy is chance. what a i can do. what's more, it is a i, this is led to the disruptive revolution that we are not quite yet aware of featuring names from amazon to sunday. and that, and capital is a concentration process is stronger in data capitalism than it is in finance, capitalism, or industrial capitalism. so there's a close connection between the fact that companies with the greatest wealth of dawns and also work well with a i a and also the world's most successful companies hang on to this angry and, and that suzanne, the data are the most valuable resource for value creation to day for the vouch up for the u. s. and china route local ai powers. china has used
facial recognition to perfect surveillance. so let me ask that jim and law enforcement also relies on it in special cases. here a i learned to recognize jess jones, typically for assaults and sounds the alarm when it shows up in permanent surveillance with, well, well, we're considering surveillance systems for humans, for example, it's justifiable that we must view this technology from a critical perspective. in any case, i order and we've got to put a great deal of work into regulating this technology and developing awareness for when we want to use or not always the and when we're water and whoosh,
we love to express ourselves on social media and reveal things about ourselves in the digital age, we can have many identities. now, an artist has created a fitting artwork and recreated herself literally blue skin face body, a 3 d body scan based on the oddest louisa claimant herself. encoded with an algorithmic simulation of her personality. common communication is the basis of our existence signs. my name is with, with my chinese name is faith main. i can say i'm very happy i'm from the future. in today's world, we see ourselves reflected in social media every day. how does that old to al perception about body, our appearance? have we basically become our own doppelganger thus conditions? once i find interesting is that i don't think, boy, what sets me apart on that rather how i adapt in order to fit in does that i am and
feel sad one minute on the money. but dan, who am i as a whatever makes me unique. oh, what makes me dear friend, from every one else london, another louisa clement likes to go beyond the glossy surface of social media in her quest to explore issues of identity based in bon, this former student of the renowned photographer, andreas gorski, is a rising star. in the international art world dulls and avatars make frequent appearances in her work. oh, work. during new york's locked down, her video installation not lost in you was displayed on time square. a piece about touch and human closeness. what happens to us when we can only communicate via whatsapp and zoom? they allow but as us what i think it can lead to intense loneliness of them so far,
i can sit on the same post stuff online and when right stuff. hello hu, money and fill my life that way. and in the amount of the town to mckee, i'm alone on the sofa. i'm not sitting in a cafe around the corner lavishly. i think you can experience the reality check and start wondering what the point is. alice, when his sharing your life online and getting loaded, likes happened when actually already just on your own. you meant a by. but these days zoom conferences can't be avoided. the oddest is talking to researches at the university of sa, broken. they've developed a chat bought that allows the doll to talk. her artificial intelligence system is based on 2000 personal questions. the doll responds and learns according to who is talking to her. and about what as a, in a hyped a dental visit. the donna said with information that we selected with louisa. i the space in i to give you that. but the chat bought command in addition to the chat
box components that company which continues to develop and might no longer conform to what louisa wants to say. it intricate a mist mid evening. the dawn will still be like her voice message. me, you left him as an experiment that involves a deliberate loss of control in order to explore the ways we unwittingly succumb to prussia and nomes. louisa claimant is stringent with her subject matter but lavish with her visuals. she creates a universe steeped in references and allusions, nude photographs of the doll, not the artist. wonderful, quentin remarked, the doll allows me to do that with her and allows me to add a certain brutality without him on the i got directness that i might not have with my own body. i can cover like, oh, which i might not want to show to the populate on it yet. i thought it didn't vote
up. for now. there are 3 of these avatars. 7 more will be made and sold to museums and collectors. sandra, are you interested in history? yes, because you can learn a lot from the past and the present. and they each have their own experience, and with each of them, the oddest will be giving away a little pace of herself. at some point. she plans to bring them all together for a very unusual sort of family reunion and learning and self evolving machines. can they also be autonomously creative? a fascinating question for artists. mario cling amount is considered one of the pioneers in the field of algorithm art. or from an auto di jacked to one of the world's most popular digital artists. mario clingman has had a skyrocketing career in ai. he's everywhere giving
lunches, holding look, shops and showing his works. and exhibitions, like here in madrid, his work is called memories of past by it's the don't have tens of thousands of portraits painted from the 17th century until today, patiently programmed. now the eye is creating new faces, apparently on its own, on the left, the more masculine and to the right. move feminine in woman to edition of that, the moment i would still say that i am the artist is line and the machine is just an extremely complicated tool. but one that unlike classic tools brings in its own ideas. i agony a day in mit blinked. right now he's working on a new installation with a robot. are it scans slides?
said the artist has brain space for globally networked vision? perhaps how a i aunt might look in the future. yeah, i love it. us. that's likely. yes. i think that a, i will at some point, give us the impression that it's actually independent and is motivated to do what it does and what i'm not saying that it will really have that motivation. but it will make that impressions in the hut of us, but an angled of it weeks and months at the computer to prove that i art is painstaking business. just look at hieronymus bush's complex work, the garden of italy, delights area. kingman has digitized it and built in digital transformations. those imagery who have sharp eyes will discover images that dissolve or gain contours. it's a major artistic effort on the part of man and machine, but what's the point? thus it in his back. so what i wanted to show with this work and in
a kind of simulation, that is that i feel that the world around us is constantly changing. and in a way that we don't even perceive eliza as it has gone as bon, even. what does a i do if you give it a 125 let is, and feeding quotations. i systems and known to be self learning. so can they actually formulate new intelligent sayings? just ask, take place at the nila to switch on the computer and preston. i begins to spout bits of wisdom that are actually pretty philosophical. ah ah, does it feel properties funds and it could be that i chosen neela for praying for an appropriate response interface. it naturally plays with the quandary between the
reverence that we have for a i on the one hand and on the other. the fear that we don't know what this new technology will bring this vis unless unsaid is annoy. picnic blinked the i exhibition at the hygiene museum and dressed and is interactive as well. mario clingman has loaded in countless photographs. visitors can use a touch screen to choose to, for example, pop art and design a fashion. and then ai goes to work using algorithms, the similarities and patterns implanted by the artist and he would yes, is a logical chain of relationships between old vases and owner men. mateo clingman creates his works with artificial intelligence mainly to surprises. oh i, i is also driving innovation in music,
beethoven's 10th symphony completed. what the composer couldn't do in his lifetime . ay ay has accomplished. other programs, let forces of nature create melodies, music composed by a river scape or to be precise. the river's many bends are analyzed and transposed into notes. the rhythm is set by the forces of nature. oh, and when the river has lots of bends or has a more complex visual structure than the musical structure is also more complex one and when the course of the river changes, then you also hear that as acoustic feed back up as a kind of live re interpretation based on the data acquired by the i then from the blue, it's algorithms are fed with countless examples which teach the ai what turns sound into music. it can then suggest what the,
the melody could embark on next. music made mathematically. but is it creative? is it art? oh ah, it's almost, it's another approach that's the way you need to imagine it. and i don't think i belong to whole generation of new composes of and also artists who have grown up with technology with algorithmic methods that mission metal. and what a i has now opened up, or machine learning to put it more precisely is a kind of sparring partner is one ot springs papa. a partner that helps in the composition process and react to suggestions at the r's. electronica future lab in linds use. ition aline crohn has been developing a program for 10 years. that can write sophisticated compositions was this written by a man or a machine? civil to tell his big breakthrough came with the program, muse net,
which can compose pieces in the style of everything from mozart to chappelle. ah, there is french feeding. if the listen to a piece of music that is composed by me, isis them, and it is able to, to gamma responses in us because of the exact in all day i, system has no understanding of our emotions. classical pianists, glenn gould's performances, were emotional and unconventional. ah, though he died in 1982, his style is still alive and well, thanks to a i. okay. so what we're doing is we're analyzing language audio recordings to see how he interprets a given piece of music and try to teach to an ai system so that the a i could play in expressive style of mr. girl, i'm bringing going,
go back life. ah, it is glen gould's. ghost is sitting at the piano. those who knew him are stunned. ah, lewis that doesn't just want to imitate human creations. he wants to explore unknown dimensions through his art. with help from ai, he's collected some other worldly signals, transcriptions from space, interpreted by ai, using familiar harmonies. it's a bit back, a bit bizarre, yet somehow sublime ah,
you enter a question and get a reply. you never would have anticipated that can move things forward in the composition or creative work, which allows it to take a turn you simply couldn't predict. i heard of it that's quite exciting. the, the out of the set bumps. and that was all today from arts 21. we hope you found our show on a i just as captivating as we did. here's to a new year full of energy and optimism. in 2022. everything is possible, but luckily only of humans and machines work together, stay healthy and happy and join us again next time. ah ah ah ah ah ah ah
a story that moves us and takes us along for the ride. it's only about to perspective culture information. this is the that we're you news and more. d w. made for mines at the bottom of the baltic sea oh snap most by fishermen for illegally tossed away secret to get trapped in the mesh and die in agony. environmentalists to trying to help with risky dive there, salvaging the guy, snacks, kluso. in 90 minutes on d w o.
in we'll go to the dark side where intelligence agencies are pulling the strings. there was a before 911 and an aftermath, 11 pieces after 911. the clubs came off. were organized crime rules. were conglomerates make their own laws? they invade our private lives through surveillance. hidden page secretive work through what's big, it doesn't matter. the only criteria worked. we'll hook people up. we ship light on the opaque world, who's behind benefits. and why are they a threat to us all?
