January 14, 2017 @ 11AM: FOG Design + Art at Fort Mason in San Francisco
Panel discussion with artist Trevor Paglen discussing his work Sight Machine: Artificial Intelligence and Ethics
At the FOG Design + Art fair on Saturday, January 14, 2017, Granick was on a panel discussing Trevor Paglen’s new performance piece in collaboration with the Kronos Quartet. Trevor’s work, Sight Machine: Artificial Intelligence and Ethics, explores the way machines “see” and interpret the experience of watching a musical performance. In the evening following this panel, a performance by the Kronos Quartet was processed in real time through artificial intelligence algorithms, and the resultant “machine vision” data images were projected on a screen above the performers. The Cantor Arts Center at Stanford described it as an artistic meditation on automated surveillance technology and the ethical considerations of new ways of seeing and processing human endeavors.
