We Are Machine_Machine Like Us

We are always looking at the relation between things and ourselves.

(Berger, 1972)

AI技術中的深度學習具有生物般的學習能力,透過龐大的資訊基礎與人工校正,人工智慧是否有可能像是人類嬰兒的成長過程,透過學習產生與人類相同的自我意識與心理狀態,或是如同John Searle的中文屋論證,反駁人工智慧具有產生人類心裡狀態的可能。在這個作品中,將以程式語言以及回答指令,建構出具有即時且互動能力的機器生命體,透過機器學習中的破碎身體影像,分裂的身體影像如同人類嬰兒初步認識的身體符號,已不如以往的身體活動,凝視著、專注著重新經歷身體。

Siri software_Conversation with people

To generate speech the Siri system stitches pre-recorded human speech. Many hours of pre-recorded speech are broken down into words, and these words are broken down into the most elemental components: Phonemes. Whenever a sentence must be generated, recording of appropriate phonemes are selected and stitched together. (Old version )

Fragmented body-Image_Machine like human baby

Infants recognize themselves in mirror or other symbolic contraption which induces apperception from the age of about six months to eighteen months, which is considered first stage of self-recognization. (Lacan, 1953) When an infant subject sees their reflection in a mirror at first, the subject in fact doesn’t recognize oneself as “I” but as the “other”. For them, their image is a succession of phantasies that extend from a fragmented body-image to a form of its totality.” This misrecognition (seeing an ideal-I where there is a fragmented, chaotic body) subsequently “characterizes “I” in all its structures. For example, in the movie The Matrix, the character, Neo looks at the fragmented body-image in a broken mirror before awaking from digital world. It seems to symbolize this fragmented reflection connects with unknown identity.
