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