“Arts-based research” means that the investigator uses his own artistic expression as means of enquiry (“artistic knowing”) or as an action-oriented research that aims a “change through art”. This type of exploration carried out by artists, designers, curators, architects, writers and musicians contributes new concepts, methods and models in order to produce new and original […]Read More Machine Learning Art as Scientific Research.
Neuroculture is a new research field tying to build an unified theory of knowledge and in order to overcome the traditional division of the worlds of science and humanities based on the idea that both are generated through the human brain. According to spanish neuroscientist Francisco Mora we are at the edge of a change […]Read More Neuroscience for a new cultural revolution.
The question of to what degree algorithms are tools, as opposed to active collaborators, is a very interesting debate in which the artists can contribute interesting reflections. Fanboys of Frankfurt School of critical theory may argue -in a clear romantic stance- that modern means of artistic production and reproduction like photography and video destroyed the aesthetic, […]Read More Autonomous Artificial Artists.
“This is a cycle. The only difference with what we have been seeing throughout human history is that now, machines are coming after people with college degrees, political influence, and Twitter accounts. (…) Let’s look at this historical process. Machines that replace manual labor, they have allowed us to focus on developing our minds. More […]Read More Machines are coming after people with college degrees.
The production and use of technologies as an extension of the human condition has helped us not only to dominate our natural environment, but to know ourselves better as a biological species. Therefore research in Artificial Intelligence is a fertile field to generate new forms of scientific knowledge, as well as for the production of […]Read More Artificial Intelligence: Science or Alchemy?
“The computer takes up where psychoanalysis left off. It takes the idea of a decentered self and makes it more concrete by modeling mind as a multi- processing machine. Where the Freudian vision seemed speculative to some, literary to others, the computational model arrives with the authoritative voice of science behind it—and with the prospect […]Read More The computer takes up where psychoanalysis left off.
Last year when I resigned my stable job to focus in finishing my PhD about Artificial Intelligence I was looked with an staring glance by my coworkers who thought I was trying to accomplish something impossible… It’s no wonder that some people can’t imagine that synthetic creative thinking might be achieved with the current developments in Cognitive Computing. As […]Read More My PhD in Artificial Intelligence is on the right track!
