tv Arts.21 - Is our future AI Deutsche Welle January 1, 2022 9:30pm-10:00pm CET
force europe to commit to say for migration policies, give a half stop in brussel, member of the european parliament on the former prime minister in belgium. one of them for the news, much more value. and what the new conflict in 60 minute d w. happiness is for everyone. human penises are very different from primate penises. we have a totally ridiculous romanticized view of nature. and david and this is climate change. pregnant sex who helping us improve books, you'll get smarter for pre d w books on youtube. with marty mazda, is that all this fear that we don't know what this new technology will bring up.
we've grown up with technology with an algorithmic method to support mo, most don't shocking how transparent 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 ai 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 say about us? an unsettling experiment in the documentary made to measure is graphically nanine negotiation as a feeler. that nuance. it's 20 years of the was i transitions. i'm at google dig a dump dementia. it, we can predict the kindling relation switched, unfamiliar warning from mentioned with no leaning clicks for has adam. 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 old coon from berlin in vienna. help us experience this through a surprising experiment. rusty's adopted invoke as you go inside. we wanted to take a closer look at our daughter being collected daily by google and facebook, and what it actually says about us. and 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 harm on the something else probably at. ringback ringback the film follows the artist journey from the creation of the facebook add 2 years ago with a us for a non 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 app just 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 moved pleased him only knowledge because they used dance and
from an austrian woman. the group pied viennese actress natalie, probably as the doppelganger, using the information from the dancer. they created a film sit in which she took on a new life and played in re created scenes or non goddess ana gig. then we introduced the woman who donated her daughter to her double gang on. and her life story was told to her by the actress who of course it's never really led this reconstructed lion. but she made it sound real that down to the last detail out of that say that head to z 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 bessie clout. this is been as a, even i lack planning, combined in the hallway to plan to still follows the donors life from her 1st
waitressing job to training is a pastry chef to her nervous breakdown. the film left his 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 from 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 vineyard photon. amazon does some bicycle in ions on it. for example, when we open our smartphone apps, they track uses and share daughter with companies like google out and buy the game andes of watson dog garden,
the 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 him. and what we're trying to show on our website is something that's never been done elsewhere and not just being observed, but that we are also being observed while we're observing this read an agreeable orbit. that's bible or barton paid assistant, he and part of the system. it is the interesting thing, not think we must live in like the system to try to design for it. that is about being able to get young decimal about ourselves, like half participant that and she left trails. i data thing. she didn't know that she had left it in it and that was the scariest part like them kind of looked at
her day to renew. we were looking at something she, i'm not even i know about herself as is vice eating disorders, depression, a life in crisis. when confronted with the daughter, the participant was overwhelmed with us was, was more her. when we wrote 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 cards, nobody really knows what these data brokers actually do with this information.
these a data broker engagement these formats were 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 a museum, this chauffeur never speak. nor does it swear. this is a computer that can make practical decisions. left, right, stop, pull, 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 the a center hygiene museum into the artificial intelligence is
a technical nerd. in the sense that a machine and ai system can solve a certain task in a very precise, cheap and quick manner. oscar 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 red neural network connects artworks and installations that show how a i is created. busy the benchmark is the marvelous brain. 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, it is an extra lot of it does from. so in this exhibit to principal object
recognition and yellow 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 that 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, the edges 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. this is lauren, a friend. as a person id at you and i y joins 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 in 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 ai and also the world's most successful companies hang on to listening with an annette. susanna. the data are the most valuable resource for value creation to day for the voucher for the us and china route local ai powers. china has used facial recognition to perfect surveillance.
so let me ask that jim and laur inforcement also relies on it in special cases. here a i learned to recognize jess jones typically results and found the alarm when it shows up in permanent surveillance with well, well, we are 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 go to a great deal of work into regulating this technology and developing awareness for when we want to use it or not. what was the uneventful water on wineshops? 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 the body scan based on the oddest louisa claimant herself. encoded with an algorithmic simulation of her personality. home medication is the basis of our existence signs. my name is with my chinese name is faith. may i very how me 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 double ganga. thus conditions once i find interesting is that i don't think, boy, what sets me apart on that round the how i adapt in order to fit in does dime and feel sad. one minute newman. but dan, who am i oh, what about 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 times square. a piece about touch and human closeness. what happens to us when we can only communicate via whatsapp and zoom lee along with us what i think it can lead to intense loneliness from so far i can sit on the same post stuff online and when right stuff in my and fill my life that way and in the amount of accountability 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. elizabeth, sharing your life online and getting loaded likes happens when actually you're really 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 has a in a hyped a dental visit. the donna said with information that we selected with louisa and the space in i to give you that. but the chat bought cannon in addition to the chat box components that come from which continues to develop and might no longer conform to what louisa wants to say. it intricate
a mist mid evening dawn will still be like her voice, the message. 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 doe, not the artist with ample quantities of amok. 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 anybody i can cover for like, oh, which i might not want to show to the populate on it yet, i could still 5 didn't vote up to 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. from an auto di jacked to one of the world's most popular digital artists, mario clingman has had a skyrocketing career in a i he's everywhere,
giving lectures, holding love shops, and showing his works. and exhibitions like here in madrid, his work is called memories of past by it's the dont 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 as one and the machine is just an extremely complicated tool. but one that, unlike classic tools, it brings in its own ideas. i again, it, it be in mich 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 maria kingdom and has digitized it. and built in little transformations, those in madrid who have sharp eyes will discover images that dissolve all gained contours. it's a major artistic f, as 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 does, it has gone. yvonne, even what does i do if you give it a $125.00 letters and feeding quotations? i, i, systems are known to be self learning. so can they actually formulate new intelligent sayings? just ask, take a 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 appropriate response and it could be that i chosen nila for pray for an appropriate response interface. it naturally plays with the quandary between the reverence that we have for a i on the one hand yahoo!
and on the other, the fear that we don't know what this new technology will bring this unless unsaid is annoyed. picnic blinked the i exhibition hygiene museum in dressed and is interactive as well. maddie 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 for similarities and patterns implanted by the artist. and guest is a logical chain of relationships between old vases and own min. mateo clingman creates his works with artificial intelligence, manly to surprises. oh i, i is also driving innovation emusic, beethoven's 10th symphony completed with 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 escape or to be precise. the rivers, 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 bins or has a more complex visual structure than the musical structure is also a more complex one. and when the course of the river changes, then you also hear that as acoustic feedback, huffman, of, as a kind of live re interpretation based on the daughter acquired by the i, then from the cookie, the blue it's. ready 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 ha. almost. it's another approach that's the way you need to imagine it. and i don't think i belong to a whole generation of new composes of and also artists who have grown up with technology, with algorithmic methods that mission, the toys and what a i has now opened up or machine learning to put it more precisely is a kind of sparring pot not is not a hot 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 trunk has been developing a program for 10 years. that can write sophisticated compositions was this written by a man or a machine able to tell? oh, his big breakthrough came with the program, muse. net which can compose pieces in the style of everything from mozart to
chappelle. ah, to those french feeding. if the listen to a piece of music that is composed by may i assist them and it is able to, to get more responses in us because of the exact in all day i see them 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 ai. 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 a i system so that the i could play in expressive style of mr. gould. i'm bringing languid back life. ah, it's, it's lynn gould's ghost is sitting at the piano. those who knew him are stunned.
ah, terms was ad 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 layout of the session. 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,
policy? uber hofstadter, brussel, member of the european parliament on the former prime minister, belgium. what happened to the news, much value, and what performed in conflict in 30 minutes on d. w t is box leaders, successor or undress, writer, the new canter of light seats, world famous choir, the to monitor core. oh mom, it's a chance to lead a classical music tradition into a new era. and for the swiss choir director, it's a lifelong dream. come true. 6 in 60 minutes, d, w ah,
they will today with love and banning thing stuff away from that, but i'm not even know how to work my own god and everyone with later holes and everything. just getting you ready to meet the germans and i me right, just do it on d. w. welcome to the dark side where intelligence agencies are pulling the strings. there was a before 911 and an after 911. he says, after $911.00, the clubs came off. were organized crime rules were conglomerates and make their own laws. they invade our private lives through surveillance. hidden opaque, secretive. what's true, what's vague? it doesn't matter. the only criteria is worked. we'll hook people up. we shed light
