It suddenly started drawing – in a naturalistic style. Yesterday I was watching it whizzing around, and the result really did look almost like you. That’s when I threw it away…

In this blog you will find also some fictional dialogues made between different virtual characters. We thought of doing this to stimulate the reader to identify with the questions or curiosity of the different characters. In fact, each character has their own personality and will interact with others in a different way. If you want to view all the virutal characters and you want more information about please visit the virtual characters page.
Anything is art if an AI says it is
Do not you understand? This is a whole new dimension, even according to the canons of the classical “art sacre”. This is a real revolution. Do you understand, ladies and gentlemen? This is the first hot plastic artwork! You! You! My boy … you are an artist!
“Young man, you don’t think I’m encountering constructive symbolism for the first time, do you? “Unplug”: free yourself from physicality, from the vulgar earthbound physicality, from the evils of civilization, from electricity, nerves, and so on. Isn’t that what this is? The association is crystal clear, I’d be tempted to say, perhaps even too obvious” (Kishon 1987)
AI see, AI do
You young badgers imagine that it would be enough to smear a pound of paint on the canvas and you’re already a modern painter. I would be willing to accept this abomination for a bad joke, if there was even the slightest humor behind it. But this here is an abracadabra! A nothing!
As far as AI can see
The case of the use of the abacus by Japanese school children and adults … tool’s use becomes incorporated into a culture-specific technology
All aboard the Spike Train!
The experimental results from neurobiology have lead to the investigation of a third generation of neural network models which …
The Network is the Message
A continued stimulus, such as a state of tension, a light or a sound, produces a continued passage of sensory impulses to the central nervous system.
I’m in your brain, releasing your transmitters
The mechanism of action of nerve stimulation is unknown… it is possible that substances are formed under the influence of nerve stimulation
Come in Neuron: do you copy?
If we liken the nervous currents to electric currents, we can compare the nervous system below the hemispheres to a direct circuit from sense-organ to muscle
Zap goes the Neuron
If I do not greatly deceive myself, I have succeeded in realizing… the hundred years’ dream of physicists and physiologists, to wit, the identity of the nervous principle with electricity
Today one Neuron, tomorrow the Brain!
The Navy said the perceptron would be the first non-living mechanism capable of receiving, recognizing and identifying its surroundings without any human training or control
Do Neurons Count?
Neural computers do not execute typical machine instructions of digital computers unless they are made to emulate the behavior of physical neural networks
Fire All Neurons!
Mechanical analog computers had their origins in Naval Gunnery in World War I […] mechanical analog computers remained of considerable military importance certainly until well into the 1960s and have only been superseded by digital computing systems in the 1970s.
