For the last 6+ months I have been doing some research on Artificial Intelligence for an art project. The field is vast and artistic engagement with it is far from simple. Here I’m laying down some quick thoughts about it.Continue reading
Coming to studio (after kinda running away from it all in a cafe – so burdening is the timeline, deadline and all the delayed work!) I discover so much more is online (and offline) about “music and A.I.” I’m overwhelmed. I will post some links here as a way to bookmark stuff.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
Last two weeks:
- visited Rob in Maribor, had long discussion about different solutions, ideas… 
- fruitful and constructive meeting with Kapelica team 
- 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 
- 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.  That was progress.
Today I’m working on creating a Git project, currently on Gitlab.com (I wish I would make it on my own virtual server using YUNOHOST+Gitlab CE), trying to breakdown the huge octopus with all the tentacles leading to different directions. Also it makes sense to create issues that tie in Milestones and a TODO list automatically.Continue reading
Came back to Jitakami research today. It was not easy to consolidate two+ missed months, to throw away a stale plan and try to understand what is realistically possible to do in 4 weeks left for the RAGLAIN/AUTOCOM installation that will be put on on 21th June at Kapelica Gallery.
I returned to some basic questions: what is A.I.?
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.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
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.Continue reading
