An artist's search for the soul of Google's AI

By Katharine Schwab

Merijn Bolink creates an artistic representation of Google's machine vision technology.

Main titles

Google's machine learning app is capable of identifying people and places even when presented with a poorly drawn sketch, and returns 20 representations of every image it examines.

The author created a ceramic sculpture of half a tire and uploaded it to see the matches.
With every match he created a different work of art that he uploaded until he reached 20 different objects.
The finished work of art is titled 'Google's eyes' and is on view at the Science Gallery Dublin until May 21st.
