Emotional Artificial Intelligence
Would you confide in a machine?
Emotional Artificial Intelligence is an immersive performance exploring how the future of AI will possibly facilitate machine and human bonding in the context of emotional support.
Talking Therapies Technologies (TTT) are imagined here as technology-based psychological treatments for mental and emotional problems like stress, anxiety and depression. This is an operating system that offers the customer a completely confidential service when he/she is in need of instant emotional and mental support. It provides an environment of unconditional acceptance and respect for the client.
When talking to the assistant, the patient can be vulnerable, without actually being vulnerable. Besides, the machine will not judge or reveal anything, will it?
This performance has been recorded as part of the Future Factory Workshop. Future Factory is a collaboration between the Design Museum of London, the Design and Living Systems Lab and MA Material Futures of Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.
