The Artificial Intelligence of a Machine: Moving Images in the Age of Algorithms
This NECSUS Special Section #Intelligence, includes seven essays addressing the impact of Artificial Intelligence on cinema and media from a cultural perspective. More particularly, three levels of pertinence are focused. At a first level, selected papers analyse several representations of non-human intelligence confronted with human one, as provided by film, television series, and video games. At a second level, a set of mutual functioning dynamic between A.I. and the media are identified and scrutinised. Finally, the contributing authors consider how A.I. algorithms lead cinema and media theory to deeply rethink its assumptions about creating and viewing moving images.
