I'm not really much of a visual artist, but hey, these Bayeux Tapestry mash-ups I've been doing lately on Twitter have ended up on hilobrow's Eye Candy Section.

Thanks, Peggy Nelson, for the write-up! \o/

I was left with a strange set of sounds (can we call it a dataset?), and an audio diary which could only bring on a sense of the uncanny. As if both the AI and myself had been sleepwalking through most of my days.

We could venture out and call this "machine listening", or "data listening" (listening as data-mining). And this eavesdropping/overhearing was a completely different process from what I know of as listening practice.

Even bearing in mind where I’d been and what I’d done on a given day, it was difficult to recognise the places, soundscapes, sometimes even voices heard in these registers.

As the exercise progressed, and a list of recordings started appearing on my "activity" tab, things started looking (and sounding) stranger and stranger. The recordings picked up by the meagre microphone of my smartphone were very low quality, short bursts of sound.

I now had a separate, independent listening agent roaming around with me, occasionally picking up sounds, and laying down a separate, independent register of activities and goings-on around me. A private detective to follow me around and listen in on my environment, for free.

For a few months back in 2016 I allowed a major ISP to spy on me. I had found out that they were recording and storing all sounds picked up by a mobile device when using voice search, presumably to train their neural networks to improve the AI’s capacity to identify search terms.

Sema (a project by MIMIC) is still very much in an experimental stage. It is literally being launched at the same time as the workshop.

So this starts on Monday: Emute Lab's Sema: Live Coding With Machine Learning Workshop.

The workshop is facilitated by Thor Magnusson, Francisco Bernardo, and Chris Chris Kiefer.

Really looking forward to get going with it.

We’re on at 8:00 pm EST (according to my calculations, that’s 2:00 am on June 28th here in Olde Europe). Tickets are free, with an optional donation.

Head over to the Elixir Salon site for full schedule, line-up, etc.

We have been working on this on and off during the past week, with participants spread over four different time zones, and the most accurate description of what we’re doing uttered by session visitors has been “sick”.
