Ep 16: Agent Ramon Amaro - Can Machines Perceive in Totality‪?‬ AI Agents

    • Arts

When AI is only worth as much as the algorithms and data it is based upon, what cultural impacts and criticisms are not afforded to what can be deemed objective data? Though we have looked at AI through the disciplines of philosophy, engineering, and art, the humanities have a lot more to do with this field as we increasingly realise the cultural potential (and indeed impact) of machine learning. Ramon Amaro is perfectly situated to identify issues with AI practice now, as a Lecturer in Visual Cultures at University College London. Ramon holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy at Goldsmiths, a Masters's degree in Sociological Research from the University of Essex, and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. With broad expertise, Agent Ramon Amaro joins the art intelligence agency to explore ideas of Afrofuturism, problematisation of AI, and ideas of perception in machines and visual cultures.
