Anatomies of Intelligence (live)

Anatomies of Intelligence (AoI) is an algorithmic live performance which brings out a sensory experience for existing with and within the bodies of data science. This series of performances take place in an immersive audio-visual setting, combining voice, composed sound and visual projections to create an experience of a single machine learning algorithm as it unfolds, “slowed down” to a scale perceptible to humans. It is an artistic research project led by Joana Chicau and Jonathan Reus, who work together to make connections between the formats and collections of anatomical knowledge and investigations into the “anatomy” of computational learning and prediction processes, datasets and machine learning models.
