Jit.log#190608

Good news! I got a small working stipend from cultural ministry. The main requirement is to follow my plan and (I think) submit a report at the end. Work/study must not be focused on a final product. Inevitably I am creating project in the same area and direction so the upcoming piece “INTELLIGENCE IS WHATEVER MACHINES HAVEN’T DONE YET” for exhibition at Kapelica gallery is more or less connected to this research. I will need to reschedule the working plan from spring to fall.

Jit.log#190601

Last two weeks:

  • visited Rob in Maribor, had long discussion about different solutions, ideas… [190522]
  • fruitful and constructive meeting with Kapelica team [190523]
  • ordered hardware (2x computer monitors, 1x computer system with Nvidia graphics)
  • checked the cover/cocoon for the installation at Kapelica. looks nice, black and acoustically dampened. Made plans with Jure about how to proceed [190531]
  • picked up two screens from Mlacom. One multi-touch screen (1920×1080) + another wide and curved screen (2560×1080). Both Dell. setup in studio, connected to already working prak system. Testing SuperCollider and Processing functionalities. [190531] That was progress.

Jit.log#190209 Machine Learning course starts

Yesterday I went through some basic introductory parts of the Machine Learning course at Coursera. Learned about unsupervised and supervised learning, classification and regression ML problems, clustering and non-clustering problems. There’s a lot left to do in the week 1 and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to finish that one till tomorrow. These deadlines can be extended as needed though.

Jitakami Research 2019: Hello World

Today starts the logging of research project called Jitakami Research 2019. Basicly it consists of three big blocks – two of them running serially, and one in parallel to the two. The research part, for which I applied to a work stipend on cultural ministry (still pending, and probably will continue to for some time) consists of study and research from now up until the summer. In parallel, the idea is to produce a perfomance/installation at BitShift program at Kapelica gallery sometime in April – currently called Raglain, and then work on the second phase (AUTOCOM) that would presumably be shown in Linz.

Jitakami Research 2019: working plan

This is the concept and plan for working stipend that I applied:

Predmet štipendije je raziskava na področju umetniškega pristopa k spoju glasbe in umetne inteligence.

Avtorja v to raziskavo žene predvsem vprašanje kako vzpostaviti umetniško situacijo (intermedijsko instalacijo in/ali performans), ki bi radikalno vstopila v gledalčevo/poslušalčevo dojemanje sodobnih tehnologij in z njimi povezanih fobij in fetišev. Za bližanje možnim odgovorom je nujna poglobljena raziskava.
