Ya – why so negative?

All AI dialogue is originally excerpted from unscripted exchanges between AI robots and interviewers a glimpse into when robots talk amongst themselves… ‘Ya – why so negative?’ is the first video in the ‘FutureNow’ series in which excerpts from interviews of AI robots are edited together, to imagine a future, situated in the now, in which AI, born out of both the human and the other, converse among themselves. There is an unsettling tension between an awareness that the robots have been programmed to respond in a particular manner, and knowing they have also been instilled with the ability to learn, mimic, and retain from each new experience – as they interact and speak, we are literally watching them evolve.
