Once a day, during nightfall the Berlin TV tower switches its warning lights from white to red. I love this, magic! and I’ve looked out for it often over the years. Tonight I finally caught this moment on video. Be my personal hero and watch the whole thing! Or skip to 1:00 min if you are in a rush ;))) … Or even better try to catch the moment in Berlin on the street, it is around 9:45pm currently.
Decision Making – L’instant décisif
Decisions are the result of complex cognitive processes. Considering them collectively when they involve our shared futures makes them harder to make. But, more and more often, we include machines into such processes through algorithms qualified as decisional. Of course, it raises questions that artists know how to put into perspective. Because of the age that we are currently living in, a brief instant regarding the whole history of our planet, is decisive considering the choices available to us for a responsible development of Artificial Intelligence. Therefore, it is now that human rights are at stake, for instance, about what will emerge from the use of our personal data. The consideration of artworks coming from decisive processes connecting humans to machines could only spring us into an immediate future that still belongs to us.
