AI’s Staging

Artigo acaba se sair sobre a IA na revista Sociétés, Bruxelas, disponível aqui.

Abstract – The central argument of this article is that objects must be learned through their performances, which result from their intertwining with other objects in space-time, based on their staging in a network involving other participants rather than looking for veiled essences. An artificial intelligence (AI) device participates in a theatrical process in which the scene, the backstage, the other actors (human or non-human), and the plot have a direct influence on the outcome of the action. We draw on this epistemology to analyze the ethical and political issues of AI. The article explores contexts where the use of AI is most hotly debated worldwide: education, art, conversation, work, information, and the environment. We conclude with a manifesto on AI from a Global South perspective.
