Google Just Open Sourced the Artificial Intelligence Engine at the Heart of Its Online Empire by Cade Metz

Google Just Open Sourced the Artificial Intelligence Engine at the Heart of Its Online Empire by Cade Metz | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
In a dramatic departure, Google is open sourcing software that sits at the heart of its online empire.

 

TECH PUNDIT TIM O’Reilly had just tried the new Google Photos app, and he was amazed by the depth of its artificial intelligence.

 

O’Reilly was standing a few feet from Google CEO and co-founder Larry Page this past May, at a small cocktail reception for the press at the annual Google I/O conference—the centerpiece of the company’s year. Google had unveiled its personal photos app earlier in the day, and O’Reilly marveled that if he typed something like “gravestone” into the search box, the app could find a photo of his uncle’s grave, taken so long ago.

 

The app uses an increasingly powerful form of artificial intelligence called deep learning. By analyzing thousands of photos of gravestones, this AI technology can learn to identify a gravestone it has never seen before. The same goes for cats and dogs, trees and clouds, flowers and food...

The Serious Relationship of Art and Technology by Silka P. and Andrey V.

The Serious Relationship of Art and Technology by Silka P. and Andrey V. | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Both technology and art define and continue to reshape the world we live in. Re-imagining what we know as real or as a solid ground, pushes not only our opinions and understandings of nature to the limits, but with new inventions and experiments, both the mind and the body, the language, and the world itself seems to be making room for a new sphere and new rules. Governed by the new aesthetics, the virtual, the scientific and the logic that is beyond belief, technology in art challenges our perceptions and that is what creativity and science are all about. If we are to understand that art reflects the period of time we are all in, how are we to grasp the growing number of young contemporary artists that base their practice on the presentation of immaterial and ephemeral things? ...

Illuminating the ‘Dark’ Web and Content Monitoring, Eva and Franco Mattes // by Tes Loos > New York Times | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Plenty of artists have explored the relationship between light and shadow to create indelible images and tell a story.

Eva and Franco Mattes — married Brooklyn artists and “hacktivists” — use those ideas metaphorically, peeling back the surface of what they call the “sanitized” internet to reveal its murkier side: the world of content monitoring and the elusive individuals who are tasked with tracking and removing offensive material online.

Their latest exhibition, “Abuse Standards Violations,” on view at London’s Carroll/Fletcher gallery until Aug. 27, is a journey into what Ben Vickers, a London curator at the Serpentine Galleries and fan of their work, called “the dark, morbid heart of the internet.”

Artificial Intelligence’s White Guy Problem - by KateCrawford / New York Times #AI

Artificial Intelligence’s White Guy Problem - by KateCrawford / New York Times #AI | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
Our world is increasingly shaped by biased algorithms that have been built with little oversight.

 

ACCORDING to some prominent voices in the tech world, artificial intelligence presents a looming existential threat to humanity: Warnings by luminaries like Elon Musk and Nick Bostrom about “the singularity” — when machines become smarter than humans — have attracted millions of dollars and spawned a multitude of conferences.

 

But this hand-wringing is a distraction from the very real problems with artificial intelligence today, which may already be exacerbating inequality in the workplace, at home and in our legal and judicial systems. Sexism, racism and other forms of discrimination are being built into the machine-learning algorithms that underlie the technology behind many “intelligent” systems that shape how we are categorized and advertised to...

UK firms develop #drone-freezing ray

UK firms develop #drone-freezing ray | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it
Three British companies have created a device to deter drones from entering sensitive areas by freezing them mid-flight

 

The Anti-UAV Defense System (Auds) works by covertly jamming a drone's signal, making it unresponsive.

After this disruption, the operator is likely to retrieve the drone believing that it has malfunctioned.

 

The system joins a host of recently announced technologies which can blast larger drones out of the sky.

 

A drone flying in sensitive airspace can be detected by the Auds radar and then sighted via a camera equipped with thermal imaging capabilities so that it can be targeted visually.

Then, a high-powered radio signal can be focused on the drone - essentially overriding the connection to whoever is operating it.

The whole process takes as little as 25 seconds, according to the manufacturers.

Building AI Is Hard—So Facebook Is Building AI That Builds AI by Cade Metz on	Wired | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Deep neural networks are remaking the Internet. Able to learn very human tasks by analyzing vast amounts of digital data, these artificially intelligent systems are injecting online services with a power that just wasn’t viable in years past. They’re identifying faces in photos and recognizing commands spoken into smartphones and translating conversations from one language to another. They’re even helping Google choose its search results. All this we know. But what’s less discussed is how the giants of the Internet go about building these rather remarkable engines of AI.

Pokémon, postage stamps and the strategy board game Risk. Simon Denny uses everyday objects like these to illuminate how technology shapes the way we live and work. In his latest exhibition, the Berlin-based New Zealand artist explores blockchain, the little-understood technology underpinning the digital currency bitcoin.

Opening Thursday at New York’s Petzel Gallery, “Blockchain Future States” looks at competing views about how the technology should evolve. Large cutout images of the leaders of three leading blockchain companies—Digital Asset Holdings LLC, 21 Inc. and Ethereum—stand near globe-like structures meant to highlight how new currency systems could challenge traditional forms of statehood. A Risk board for each firm lays out the company’s strategy to create a new world order. A similar installation, “Blockchain Visionaries,” is at the Berlin Biennale until Sept. 18.

Notre pathétique civilisation de la distraction - par Julien Burri

Notre pathétique civilisation de la distraction - par Julien Burri | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

C’est un philosophe qui met les mains dans le cambouis. En 2001, il claquait la porte d’un think tank à Washington, qui le payait pourtant grassement, parce qu’il n’en pouvait plus de voir sa pensée appauvrie et muselée. Alors il est devenu réparateur de motos. Et il a écrit un premier essai, devenu un best-seller, L’Eloge du carburateur (La Découverte, 2010), qui revalorisait le travail manuel par rapport aux nouveaux métiers de «l’économie du savoir». Aujourd’hui chercheur à l’Université de Virginie, il a gardé sa boutique de réparation. Matthew B. Crawford donne l’image d’un «type cool». Il porte des chemises de bûcheron et des pulls à capuche. Une fois par semaine, il enfile sa combinaison de motard et part rouler à 100 kilomètres à l’heure sur les routes des environ de Charlottesville, Virginie. Cela ne l’empêche pas d’être en même temps un intellectuel de pointe, et de remettre en question la façon dont notre attention a été peu à peu transformée en marchandise...

If your understanding of early punk derives mainly from documentaries, you’re sorely missing out. As I wrote in a post yesterday on international treasure John Peel—the BBC DJ who exposed more than a couple generations to carefully-curated punk rock—finding such music before the internet could be a daunting, and exciting, adventure. Without a doubt the best way die-hard fans and curious onlookers could get a feel for the music, manners, and personalities of any number of local scenes was through magazine culture...

How technology disrupted the truth by Katharine Viner // The Guardian

How technology disrupted the truth by Katharine Viner // The Guardian | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

One Monday morning last September, Britain woke to a depraved news story. The prime minister, David Cameron, had committed an “obscene act with a dead pig’s head”, according to the Daily Mail. “A distinguished Oxford contemporary claims Cameron once took part in an outrageous initiation ceremony at a Piers Gaveston event, involving a dead pig,” the paper reported. Piers Gaveston is the name of a riotous Oxford university dining society; the authors of the story claimed their source was an MP, who said he had seen photographic evidence: “His extraordinary suggestion is that the future PM inserted a private part of his anatomy into the animal.”

 

The story, extracted from a new biography of Cameron, sparked an immediate furore. It was gross, it was a great opportunity to humiliate an elitist prime minister, and many felt it rang true for a former member of the notorious Bullingdon Club. Within minutes, #Piggate and #Hameron were trending on Twitter, and even senior politicians joined the fun: Nicola Sturgeon said the allegations had “entertained the whole country”, while Paddy Ashdown joked that Cameron was “hogging the headlines”...

L’art fait par les machines, pour les machines | BIAN Biennale internationale d’art numérique // artpress | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

Pour sa troisième édition, la Biennale internationale d’art numérique de Montréal – ou BIAN – a investi l’Arsenal. Initiée par Alain Thibault, qui en est aussi le directeur artistique, elle fédère une nouvelle fois de nombreux événements. Cette année, à travers sa thématique « Automata », cette troisième édition nous incite à reconsidérer un art « fait par les machines » et/ou « pour les machines ».

 

C’est avec ses événements satellites que la BIAN a débuté en avril dernier alors que d’autres la clôtureront en août prochain. Citons l’exposition ADC/DAC de la galerie Diagonal dans le quartier montréalais du Mile-End. Comme l’indique son titre, il y est question de conversion de l’analogique au numérique et vice versa, donc de ce monde de « l’entre-deux » qui nous est aujourd’hui si familier. Phillip David Stearns y présente notamment une série de tapisseries, Vestigial Data, produites sur des métiers à tisser de type Jacquard à commande numérique.

The sculpture controlled by bees: Wolfgang Buttress's Hive

The sculpture controlled by bees: Wolfgang Buttress's Hive | Digital #MediaArt(s) Numérique(s) | Scoop.it

My approach to a sculpture seeks to frame nature so one can experience it more intimately,” says British artist Wolfgang Buttress, whose 17-metre high Hive installation opens at the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, in London on Saturday. “I want visitors to feel enveloped, wrapped-up and involved in the experience, rather than adopting the position of an external observer.”

 
How much do you know about bees? - quiz
 

Its 170,000 pieces of aluminium, suspended from the ground, appear as a twisting swarm of bees from afar, but as you come closer it becomes a hive-like structure of latticework whose low humming sound and hundreds of flickering LED lights draws you in to a multi-sensory instillation. The intensity of sound and light is controlled by the vibrations of honeybees in an actual hive at Kew that is connected to the sculpture. ...

Since it debuted in 2000, Mutek has sat at the center of Montréal’s electronic music scene.

 

Each year, the festival attracts artists from around the globe, focusing on live experimental music on the fringes of a plethora of electronic subgenres. It’s not just sound either, Mutek’s focus on digital arts encourages A/V performance, and often hosts a number of exciting debuts.

 

This year, Mutek Montréal’s line up is more diverse and bold than ever, pitting well-known veterans like Tim Hecker and Atom TM against vital new talent such as footwork innovator Jlin, Iranian producer Ash Koosha and the Naafi-associated Siete Catorce.

The "Jeu de Paume" Center presented by Marta Gili, its director (fr english subtitles - 2011)

The Jeu de Paume is an arts center with a strong reputation for exhibiting and promoting all forms of mechanical and electronic imagery (photography, cinema, video, installation, web art, etc.). As well as organizing or co-organizing exhibitions, it hosts film programs, symposia, seminars, and educational activities, and also publishes a range of material. With its high-profile exhibitions of established, little-known and emerging artists (notably the Satellite program), the Jeu de Paume ties together different narrative strands, mixing the historic and the contemporary, oscillating between resonance and dissonance, attracting broad and diverse audiences.

Centre d’art et lieu de référence pour la diffusion de l’image des XXe et XXIe siècles (photographie, cinéma, vidéo, installation, net art…), le Jeu de Paume a vocation à produire ou coproduire des expositions, mais aussi des cycles de cinéma, colloques, séminaires, activités éducatives ou encore des publications.

Marta Gili est directrice du Musée du Jeu de Paume à Paris depuis octobre 2006. Critique d’art, spécialiste de photographie, elle est membre fondateur du département photographique de la Fondation Miró à Barcelone et dirige ensuite pendant quinze ans le département Photographie et Arts visuels de la Fondation La Caixa.
