Technoetic Ecologies of Another AI

Activity: Talk or presentationPresentation at conference/workshop/seminar


Tracing the critique of Large Language Models (LLM), this short paper underscores that there are substantial ethical challenges related to bias in the training data, copyright issues, as well as ecological challenges, which the technology industry has consistently downplayed over the years. The paper highlights the distinction between the processes of pattern recognition that provide LLM’s the appearance of intelligence and the per-formative processes inherent in art practice. The paper further highlights how Gordon Pask’s emphasis on aesthetic experience in their conceptions of cybernetics opened a poly-dimensional more-than-human world and paved the way for the technoetic life that Roy Ascott has conceptualized and continues to envision.
