Retraining Bodies by Luca Pagan
6 p.m. MATTATOIO – Free entrance
Luca Pagan’s performative lecture Retraining Bodies originates from a reflection on the link between technologies and the human body. Through the use of bodily architectures to detect body movement, the machine learns to associate gestural expressiveness with the production of sound forms.
The project aims to shift the focus of research from what we can teach artificial intelligence to what and how much artificial intelligence can teach us.
