ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE LANDSCAPES / NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS AND ENVIRONMENTS IN THE AGE OF ALGORITHMS

PROJECTIONS AND MEETINGS with Abelardo Gil-Fournier and Jussi Parikka - RESEARCH CYCLE MACHINE VISION, MACHINE HEARING. SURVEILLANCE, SIMULATION, SPECULATION
Thursday, February 27th - 8pm

An Earthology of Moving Landforms (2018-2019): Predictions of the movements of the fast meandering Ucayali river in Perú.

Abelardo Gil-Fournier

HOW DOES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE CHANGE OUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE LANDSCAPE? WHAT ARE THE ISSUES AT STAKE? HOW DO THESE TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES TRANSFORM VISUAL REPRESENTATIONS OF NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS INTO A VAST FIELD OF DATA EXTRACTION?

The third session of the cycle is devoted to the aesthetic and political stakes of the new forms of vision and listening. They are based on what is today called artificial intelligence and machine learning. We will take as a starting point the impact of these new technologies on the different forms of representation of nature: in particular, satellite images of the surface of our planet.

There will be a presentation of the projects developed by the artist Abelardo Gil-Fournier in collaboration with Jussi Parikka and the Archaeologies of Media and Technology research group - for example, Landscape Prediction: An Earthology of Moving Landforms. The aim will be to analyse the interrelationships between "artificial" and "natural" intelligence, and the way in which machine learning and digital geolocation technologies are used to make predictions about the future evolution of our planet and its "active" forms: rivers, glaciers, forests.

Jussi Parikka is Professor of Technological Culture & Aesthetics at the Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton and co-director of the Archaeologies of Media and Technology research group. His publications include Insect MediaAn Archaeology of Animals and Technology (University of Minnesota Press, 2010), Qu’est-ce que l’archéologie des medias ? [What is Media Archaeology?] (Polity, 2012), The Anthrobscene (Polity, 2014), A Geology of Media (University of Minnesota Press, 2015).

Artist and researcher, Abelardo Gil-Fournier analyses the intertwining of contemporary forms of visualization and the living surface of our planet. His practice aims to develop platforms - installations, devices, laboratories - conceived as open mechanisms where art, research and politics intersect. He is currently a post-doc researcher at the FAMU in Prague, and he participates in the research of the Archaeologies of Media and Technology (AMT) group.

As part of the Machine Vision, Machine Hearing. Surveillance, simulation, speculation - Research cycle designed by Ada Ackerman (CNRS/THALIM), Alice Leroy (Gustave Eiffel University - Paris Est) and Antonio Somaini (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle - Paris 3) in collaboration with LE BAL and the École Normale Supérieure - Ulm and the research teams THALIM and LIRA.
