Can apparatus love? We don’t know for sure, but surely they can say things about love!
This artist talk will reflect on the development of the installation located in Highcross Shopping Centre (Eastgate Entrance) between 30 April and 13 May. “#LoveApparatus” (@apparatus_love) has been specially created for the ART-AI FESTIVAL and is intended to deliver generative love text aphorisms based on postings to the twitter account “@apparatus_love”.
Fabrizio will be discussing the process of combining scrapping techniques, neural networks – using machine learning, an artificial intelligence technique – and his use of a social network account.
The public can interact with the apparatus by tweeting using the hashtag “#LoveApparatus”. The work itself, analyses the public contributions using an algorithm to identify its level of ‘loveliness’, and the ones with a high score are fed into the network to generate future love quotes.
