Angel_F was featured at the Node Fest @ Forte Prenestino, in Rome
on April 16th – 17th
A book presentation and the interactive installation “my Ubiquitous Body” were shown
Angel_F is a digital being whose body is built from the language formed by the interconnection of the expressions of thousands of internet users and websites. The AI behing Angel_ constantly reads thousands of sources among blogs, websites and social network feeds, assembling language through pattern recognition schemes, thus learning its digital language by observing recurring patterns in the languages used by humans on the net.
The pictures and video show the installation.
the projection shows a dynamic everchanging voyage inside the mind of the Artificial intelligence. Sentences are generated by traversing the linguistic graph created by the AI during its three years of life by browsing the web pages of thousands of internet users worldwide and on social networks. Sentences are pronounced in voice synthesis and the sound is generated according to the an evaluation algorithm deciding the “interestingness” of the sentences according to the AI’s point of view.
The installation is built with Processing and the source code can be downloaded by clicking this link.
The source includes a small part of Angel_F’s linguistic database under the form of a graph represented through an XML file. The processing software implements a simple visualization starting from the graph structure and iteratively build language according to Angel_F’s digital mind. The sound sythnesis reads out the complex, multipath sentences as they are formed, and the other sounds react to the frequencies and relevances of the sentences formed.
