Clara Boj, Diego Diaz – Machine Biography 2019-2022
“What would my life be like in the year 2050?
Clara Boj and Diego Diaz have generated a prediction about their own future biography by training an artificial intelligence with the collection of all their digital activity (locations, conversations, photographs, videos, etc.) during 2017. For this purpose, they hacked their mobile phones with spyware that captured more than 48 million records. This data was used to train different deep neural networks (RNN, CNN, GAN and others) which, based on this information, formulated a hypothesis about what their life would be like in 2050. The result, contained in the 365 books of Machine Biography (one book per day of the year), proposes a fictitious biography of the future created by artificial intelligence. If therefore questions the predictive capacity of algorithms and the actual veracity of the information while exploring its creative potential.”
