How can we fuel AI with emotional data?


In the public debate the generation and storage of personal information (data) and associated questions about security and privacy play an increasingly important role. This subject will only gain importance in the near future, as we make technological advances in collecting personal data and using it. The WE ARE DATA MIRROR CUBE is the new version of the Mirror Room that was launched in 2016 and has since appeared at many festivals, conferences and events and has welcomed approximately 7,000 visitors. The CUBE has been specially developed for indoor locations and is suitable for independent display for a longer period of time.

From December 17, 2020 to November 2022, the MIRROR CUBE will be located in the Technisches Museum in Vienna. The exhibition "Artificial Intelligence?" gives visitors a transparent, reflective look at utopias and hysteria surrounding humanoid robots and artificial intelligence. The exhibition presents the current technological developments and wants to show what is being researched with what goals, what social effects are to be expected from the results and what is actually behind trend catchphrases such as “machine learning”, “algorithm” or “autonomous systems”. WE ARE DATA has been invited by Tinker Imagineers to become part of this exhibition with the MIRROR CUBE, which they have curated and designed on behalf of the museum.

The MIRROR CUBE contributes to a deeper awareness of what personal information can be recorded and what this means for each and every one of us. If you really experience and feel this real, you can better understand the new technologies to which we are exposed. The experience in the MIRROR CUBE focuses on physical and emotional information that you – as a person – are always sharing, whether you like it or not, or know it or not. WE ARE DATA.
