A talk by Hito Steyerl

I was just at her talk/ panel discussion. Unfortunately the talk from today is not online, but i found this one that is also very inspiring.

It is a very beautiful (in perhaps ironical way) concept. Researchers breaking window glass to teach computer how the breaking glass sounds like…

I think she puts it in very nice way, the question is what do we want (or not want) to automate, and why. She states that politics is a process of negotiation between human to human to find the common agreement, and it is not the result/ decision that is important but the process. Without experiencing the process, the result does not make sense… thus we can not automate politics.

and I also like her description of “Artificial Stupidity”
