Artificial intelligence is already a huge part of our everyday lives, bridging the gap between man and machine. On the new *um website, we show how human and artificial intelligence are inextricably linked – and we even take a look inside the human brain.
Or, to be more precise, a look inside the brain of Ulf Schöneberg, who built his own EEG and transformed the data into a pioneering ‘algorithmic artwork’ that layers the recorded brainwaves over one another and changes in appearance depending on his mood.
The piece is completed by a headline ticker showing IT-related news above the image of the brainwaves. The headlines are generated automatically by a Markov chain trained in-house at *um; this same mechanism is used in robot journalism.
