空の国家 – State of Empty

Category : , ,

Date : 2016

This work is a system in which artificial intelligence creates its own state like nation-state/sovereign-country for artificial intelligence.
AI genrates various elements of a state such as people, language, and constitution, etc.

As an installation, the work visualized processes of creating a state by generating artificial people, their own language and laws, their own governance through voting, and the landscapes they see.

On a large wall, processes of creating language and laws were projected, and a dozen small computers showed artificial people, with whom they talked and voted.
A table resembling a glass Go board displays a view of a state and their learning process, and an invisible player plays back the game records of AlphaGo defeating humans. (It shows how the position of a Go stone is determined by the ripples that appear when it is placed. This square glass table is a ghost Go board that plays AI activity.)
