Reading & Performance: Robots.txt – Die Sprache der Maschinen
Wednesday, 27 September, 7pm
Actors Mavie Hörbiger and Philipp Hauß read a selection of texts created by Deep Learning algorithms and other - partly historical - language-generating machines on the occasion of the exhibition KI. Künstlerische Intelligenz. (AI. Artistic Intelligence). They will also perform a text collage comprised of texts by chatbots, automatically created social media posts, and by language robots, such as Farranti Mark 1, Eliza, Tay, Poetry Machine and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump. Finally, they will read the chat log protocols of whistleblower Chelsea Manning and former hacker Adrian Lamo, who was reported to the authorities by Manning. These protocals mark the beginning of a new era of technological transparency and power.
Getreidemarkt 14, 1010 Vienna
