Latent Riot: Discussion with the makers - Discussion

None
Navigate to the "CreativeAI | Latent Riot " room in the MozFest Spatial Chat to attend this session. Our art work "Latent riot" (https://www.latent-riot.space) deals with the way society thinks and talks about AI: In the public discourse about Artificial Intelligence the narrative of ​“an AI”​ that acts according to its own desires and intentions is ​a common myth​. Our artwork shows protest signs generated by Artificial Neural Networks, which is an ironic comment on AI having its own goals and desires to protest. We will discuss 1. how ascribing agency to AI is wrong according to the technical realities behind these systems 2. how ascribing agency to AI is harmful because it hides human agency 3. what we can do against this trend of ascribing agency to AI in terms of the language we choose. This session is hosted on a third party website.
