Machines That Learn: Online Workshop

Nov 11, 2020 - Nov 11, 2020 | 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Virtual Event by Carnegie Museum of Art

Deep learning! Machine learning! Patterns! Oh my! In this online workshop, you will unpack the concepts and functions of machine learning within Artificial Intelligence (AI), looking at technology that tries to predict what we want based on previous decisions and preferences. Machine learning gives AI systems the ability to improve their functioning without being programmed to do so. This raises important questions about the level of autonomy that computers have today and the impact that has on our lives.

The online workshop is facilitated by artist, researcher, and technologist Mimi Onuoha, and artist, DJ, and educator Mother Cyborg (Diana Nucera) in collaboration with Allied Media Projects. The activity was designed by Onuoha and Mother Cyborg as an educational and speculative approach to understanding AI and its growing impact on society, exploring the forms AI takes today and the role AI-based technologies can play in fostering equitable futures.

Generous support for the Hillman Photography Initiative is provided by the William T. Hillman and the Henry L. Hillman Foundations.

Zoom links will be emailed upon registration.
