1st Liminal Space at the Machine Learning for Media Discovery Workshop

DAD’s Arthur Flexer presented our work on discovering semantic pathways through Belvedere’s fine arts collection at the “Machine Learning for Media Discovery Workshop” (18th of July 2020) of the “International Conference on Machine Learning”. The conference was supposed to happen in Vienna, Austria, but due to COVID-19 went fully virtual. You can see Arthur present his poster in a dedicated Zoom room below.

You can read about the results in our previous blog post, read the respective scientific paper and look at the poster.

While a virtual workshop is not able to replace the experience and liveliness of a physical scientific meeting, it still allowed us to get an increasing degree of public exposure for our work in progress, which is the purpose of our Liminal Spaces.

“Sound Art and Curating – Machine Learning and Limits of Control”

DAD-AI-Experte Arthur Flexer (OFAI, Intelligent Music Processing and Machine Learning Group) diskutiert mit Thomas Grill  (Sound Artist & Researcher, Machine Learning | ELAK) im Rahmen der Tagung “AIL x SOUNDFRAME – Navigieren im Postdigitalen. Wie Kunst und Wissenschaft unsere Zukunft gestalten” (15.-17.1.2020, Angewandte Innovation Lab)

Where do you want to go? Enter starting point. Enter destination. Get directions.
Eine einfache Gleichung. Doch was, wenn man auf diese simplen Fragen keine Antwort weiß, weil die Parameter unbestimmt sind? Wo stehe ich eigentlich? Wo will ich hin?

Das Postdigitale verweigert sich dem linearen Denken. Es ist wild, vernetzt, assoziativ, sackgassenintensiv. Gleichzeitig ermöglicht es eine Neuauslotung von Kategorien und Prioritäten und schafft damit Raum. Gemeinsam mit Künstler*innen und Wissenschaftler*innen diskutieren wir, welche Erkenntnisse der interdisziplinäre Austausch von Kunst und Wissenschaft bringt, wenn es darum geht, mögliche Parameter für die Gestaltung unserer Gesellschaft zu finden.

Termin

15.1.2020, 18 Uhr
AIL, Franz-Josefs-Kai 3, 1010 Wien
