How does AI see the world? it's easy to take for granted that an AI that is trained on labeled data to recognize certain images very well is seeing them the same way we do, but that's not so. The AI is quite alien, and helping us to see the world through its eyes is Tom White, a New Zealand-based artist. He creates physical artworks that highlight how machines “see” and thus how they think, suggesting that these systems are capable of abstraction and conceptual thinking. He has exhibited computer-based artwork internationally over the past 25 years with themes of artificial intelligence, interactivity, and computational creativity. He is currently a lecturer and researcher at University of Wellington School of Design where he teaches students the creative potential of computer programming and artificial intelligence.
All this plus our usual look at today's AI headlines.
