Artificial intelligence (AI) − the attempt to endow computers with intelligent behaviour and autonomous decision-making processes − has entered almost all areas of life, from cancer research to voice and face recognition in smartphones and virtual assistants like Amazon Alexa. This is very impressive and extremely useful in many areas, but the algorithms of AIs and their databases are produced by humans. And all humans have prejudices. So AI applications become racist, ableist, homophobic, FLINTA* (women, lesbian, intersex, non-binary, transgender, agender)- and xenophobic. The hybrid performance “The House of Monstress Intelligenzia” creates a digital space for collective reflection on how a glitchy, queer-feminist AI could function, look and feel. Can glitches, supposed errors in the system, serve as the basis for the data? The project starts on the HAU Instagram channel. At the beginning of March, a lecture-performance will present the results of research at HAU3 and then move to the digital stage HAU4.
