Pasi Rauhala´s Machina de Facto A.I. Installation at Centre Library OODI
Machina de Facto presents current forms of artificial intelligence to a wider audience. The installation presents in concrete ways how machines are able to create entirely new realities. A central element of Machina de Facto is the Ten Second News which creates a new news headline and image every ten seconds. The neural network used in the installation has utilized over 100000 real news headlines which have been scraped from 173 different english language RSS feeds during the last two months. The installation positions itself between truth and untruth. Artificial Intelligence is present in all elements of the installation, and is processing and altering facts which appear seemingly familiar. From what and how can we detect facts when our entire world is fully of information?
Machina de Facto is one of the four installations produced by Kunstventures Oy, supported by an AVEK Mediarata grant.
