Neural Rope#1.Inside an Artificial Brain
di Alex Dorici e Luca Maria Gambardella

How does our mind work? How does it change, learn, what’s inside our brain?
The interactive installation NeuralRope#1. Inside an Artificial Brain. shows how an artificial brain works and how, just as the human one, follows an endless evolution: it observes, processes, thinks, memorizes, and increases its performances. This work reproduces an artificial neural network, where the screens represent the neurons, the ropes the axons and synapses. The Artificial Intelligence observes the passengers and their hands gestures, identifies them and links them to a geometric shape. Everyday, it interacts with different people, different hands, different gestures, and every day it strives to recognize, elaborate, reason, improve itself, just like each of us.

The work created in a collaboration between Gambardella and Dorici shows how two apparently so distant worlds, art and science, together, can realize such a playful and educational installation, however able to question important matters: does Artificial Intelligence have something human?
