Robot Readable World

February 5th, 2012 | researchmaterial

A new short film by Timo Arnall, tying into a piece by his BERG comrade Mr Jones of Wales:

How do robots see the world? How do they extract meaning from our streets, cities, media and from us?  This is an experiment in found machine-vision footage, exploring the aesthetics of the robot eye.

It’s like watching a child learn.  Imagine it as, perhaps, the infant days of a young machine intelligence.  This is what it could look like.  This is how it might see.

(I’m not big on Singularitarianism and the future of strong artificial intelligence.  But this does make you think, and wonder.)
