Art of AI and Machine

Art of AI and Machine

2019-12-2725:371

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, painting robots and self-driving cars. Where is it all heading? and will the artist survive? A discussion with the makers of the documentary film, Machine with director Justin Krook, co-writer/producer Luke Mazzaferro, automated driving specialist Miklos Kiss and artist Pindar Van Arman.Written, spoken and produced by Roly Skender. Info on the film from the website - www.machine.movieMACHINE is a film about Artificial Intelligence – the most radical new technology of our time. What is AI, how is it created and what will it mean for the way we work, play, live and learn? What will happen when we’re no longer the smartest ones on the planet? And who, if anyone, is controlling the rise of this new technology?MACHINE talks to world-renowned experts, the people who are creating, researching and controlling this new technology. Story chapters address many of the key issues at stake – AI companions, the dilemma of driverless cars, autonomous warfare, using AI to create human super-intelligence and the very real possibility of a Robot Apocalypse. At times optimistic, thought-provoking and awe-inspiring, MACHINE looks not only at the practical applications of AI, but also the ethical questions raised by these new developments.MACHINE is directed by Justin Krook and produced by the team behind Chef’s Table.

There’s at least three different types of ideas that I could imagine making next for this podcast.On one side, there’s the perfect one. It would probably be a 2-4 hour multi-part series. A dreamy exploration into a previously unknown space. It’s kind of dark, but in a comfortable way, with some serious emotional punch, most likely at the end.On the other side is the second type of idea I might consider making. It’s a bit more old-school. Bright, lively 20-30 minute conversations. It would feature open-ended interviews with interesting people, sharing of knowledge… but I’m not so sure that’s where I want to go right now.The third type of podcast I might make, is the one that takes you on a very short journey to somewhere unknown. It may be as simple as going up a staircase. It’s a 5-10 minute experience that provides a different perspective on the world, before returning back to where it started.Today’s episode is one of these third type of ideas. It’s a story called Gatekeepers. I hope you enjoy it.

This episode takes a candid look at the Perth Fringe World Festival through the eyes of Artists and audiences. The event grew exponentially in a relatively short space of time, from a pilot program in 2011 of 23 events. By 2018 it had become the third biggest Fringe Festival in the world. A range of interviews and discussions explore how the Festival benefits audiences and the arts community, and in the case of a venue hub called Noodle Palace, how it also has the potential to go terribly wrong. As you’ll see... It’s complicated.Thanks to the voices of Magnus Danger Magnus, Clara Cupcakes, Logy (Logy on Fire), Georgia Deguara (Yuck Circus), Ralph McCubbin Howell & Hannah Smith (Troll), Tomás Ford, plus audience folks - Simon and Selena, Travis and James.Special thanks to Alisa Voss (vocals) and Izaac Masters (piano) on 'Ave Maria'.Sound design by Frankensound.Written, spoken and produced by Roly Skender.

How do Songlines work across the Australian Continent?A Songline is 'one of the paths across the land (or sometimes the sky) which mark the route followed by localised "creator-beings" during the Dreaming. The paths of the songlines are recorded in traditional songs, stories, dance, and painting.'I was asked to participate in an exhibition project called Australiyaniality by my artist friend Matt McVeigh, which opened up the opportunity to explore my own thoughts on Australian identity, while meeting new artists and cultural leaders along the way. They were able to shed some light on the Songlines and how they connect to people and land.This is part one of a series that will explore further questions around Australian identity and the artists choosing to question it.Australiyaniality website - www.australiyaniality.com
The Grammy award-winning soundtrack to the 2000 Cohen Brothers film, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" helped spark a folk revival, sending countless echoes forward in time. This episode follows one of those reflections, looking back at a project that brought together a unique mix of musicians for a series of concerts at the Perth Fringe World Festival in 2015. What made it special? We found a few unexpected answers.Thanks Brothers & Sisters!Jonathan Brain, Claire Coleman, Ivan Gian Piero, Chris Horan, Suzanne Ingelbrecht, Donna Iverson, Brad Jeffrey, Carl Jensen, Kate Jensen, Myki Jonez, Dave Lawrence, Rolf Liedel, Rosie Logie (special thanks for co-opting ‘The Younger Sibling Singers’ Sophie, Neve and Cedar, Janelle Morse, Joe Scholz, Elisa Siipola, Roly Skender, Aaron Sopolinski, Sara Tout and Bridget Turner. and Daniel James Grant for the photo. @misterdangrant

Modded Art with Alan Butler was an awesome episode, wut a cool story. The point where Alan had a unique eureka moment when he saw the homeless, in the simulation of GTA, was really strange, but very cool. Wut do u think Roly? Think we live in a simulation?
