Video work

AUJIK (Stefan LARSSON) [Sweden]


As with most of AUJIK’s work, this video illustrates theories used in creating a complex self-aware artificial intelligence system. The video depicts two agents with various emotional inputs and values (thesis and antithesis) that generate an outcome (synthesis). This can be described as computational dialectics. During this process the agents perceive and transcend emotions and sensations that are beyond human capacity.
