Hyperstition Bot (Or, An Evolutionary Machine Appropriating Human Culture)
An experimental creative machine to be ‘plugged-in’ to human culture through the WWW and in order to produce own multimedia content autonomously and unattendedly. The machine employs natural language graphs, as well as intelligent Comprehenders that analyse the retrieved media to further the evolutionary cycle with new queries. It also features a series of algorithmic Composers that mashup and manipulate the retrieved media in various fashions. The overall system is being designed to empirically probe the hypothesis of genuine nonhuman creativity that is built computationaly upon the re-synthesis and the reappropriation of human culture (through its WWW footprint).
Hyperstition Bot (Or, An Evolutionary Machine Appropriating Human Culture) consumes the web footprint of human culture, appropriates it, and produces own digital content in an unattended fashion and with respect to evolutionary algorithms, natural language processing/understanding, machine learning, machine listening/vision, and audio/video/3D-model synthesis.
Crawling the WWW for media content of all sorts, it retrieves digital instances of human culture and (employing a series of intelligent comprehenders and synthesisers) it algorithmically generates audio, video, image, text, and 3D data. In this way, it ever transfigures, re-synthesises, remmediates, and re-appropriates human culture with respect to congenital cybernetic orderings, to bring forth and to actualise a hybrid, multimedia, multilingual, multi-religious, post-geographical, post-political, techno-magical, and, ultimately, ‘hyperstitional’ computational reality.
Hyperstition Bot (Or, An Evolutionary Machine Appropriating Human Culture) draws on a prior research on a number of topics, most notably on “Evolvable Media Repositories” ecosystemic database management system. (It also draws on research on algorithmic audio mash-ups and imaginary soundscapes, generative solid modelling, and others)
