Professor Øyvind Brandtsegg has made a robot for an art installation at the Trøndelag Centre for Contemporary Art. It is an entity that listens, sees faces, and associates across these modalities. It is able to speak back and project neural memories of what it has seen. At the start of the exhibition it knows nothing, but learns as the exhibition progresses. During the night it “dreams” by consolidating its memories, and it uses a genetic algorithm to write some of its own control program. I have been responsible for the programming of the artificial intelligence. The exhibition opens tonight at 18, and there is also an “artist talk” on Saturday at 18. The exhibition lasts until 21. of December. A great chance to see AI in an art context!
