An evening with the art critic and lecturer at the Faculty of Performing Arts Palo Fabuš on the capabilities of artificial intelligence and “strange” ways of computer thinking.
It shows that a computer, particularly in a digital environment in which it wrangles with randomness (e.g. big data), creates its own specific way of thinking which cannot to be reduced to human thinking. It is therefore possible to speculatively state that in contrast to today’s popular ideas artificial intelligence is and will seem to be more boring but in reality much stranger.
Palo Fabuš has been studying the relationship between digital technology and human destiny. Currently he works as a lecturer in The Centre of Audiovisual Studies at the Faculty of Performing Arts in Prague. He has been editor-in-chief of the Umělec/Artist magazine since 2011.
