Re: [Yasmin_discussions] moderator this week

Dear Monica and everybody else too,

Thanks for reminding me to send out an announcements for the my show, I learn, you learn, he learns ... with the AI collective here in France at Gallerie La Resistance starting next Friday March 2nd, 2012.

The exhibit, I learn, you learn, he learns ... begins March 2, 2012 at Gallerie La Resistance in Lavardin France. The opening of the exhibition in France - as well as the premier performance at 7:30pm UTC+1 by dancer Mariana Carranza in Germany with her robotic dance partner in another AI Lab in Switzerland - will be streamed live. The exhibit is open to the public every day except Mondays and Tuesdays from March 3 to April 1, 2012 from 10am to 6pm. Find out more at the project site

I looked at the two links you sent in your email and although probably it just my Spanish is too rudimentary, I could only find the info about the coming to the event this Friday in the flesh and not the online component. I'm sure an event titled "Our Life Online" isn't unplugged completely from the mother tit of the internet ;)

Again thanks for the reminder. Good luck with your work and enjoy Barcelona. I had a show there in 2001 and it a truly great Art City (just plain great city).

work too hard, think too much, and have way too much fun

BTW, The rest below is just a bit more about the project. If you are as busy as I am - get back to work and ignore it ;) Have fun creating......

About I learn, you learn, he learns ...

On March 2, 2012 a multimedia exhibit, I learn, you learn, he learns ... opens at Gallerie La Resistance to explore this question. The artwork was created by a collective of 876 people worldwide during an online artistic experiment, Intro to Artistic Intelligence. In keeping with its web roots, the exhibit has strong on-line components, including a virtual exhibition, a live streaming performance in multiple cities and an Art Game that downloads to your home computer so that it doesn't end at the gallery.

Inspired by and produced in parallel with Prof. Norvig and Prof. Thrun of Stanford University's famous Intro to Artificial Intelligence class that attracted over 160,000 students worldwide in fall of 2011, the exhibit features work created during the same ten-week period. It ranges from individual drawings to a three meter group artwork. It also launches a project directly rooted in the Stanford AI class called I learn, you learn, he learns...
I learn, you learn, he learns an Evolutionary Art Game. Using a Wii remote, each person dances with an AI agent in a virtual representation of the data created by the AI collective's project. As each person dances with the AI agent, not only will they learn about the project and see a visualization of their own movements, but they will also become teachers themselves because the motion data generated will teach a robot how to dance.
