We're interested in exploring the nature of thought, its synthesis.
Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental questions about nature, life, mind and being. A philosopher searches for underlying meaning of things; he wants to understand it and codify it into a system of thought.
A digital philosopher uses synthesis of the knowledge learned from recorded history of thought. It generates a new vision. It explores new possibilities, new norms, new concepts.
REDEFINING THE MIND.
01 THE ENTITY
Oracle IO sculpture will be a large-scale, realistic representation of an artificial philosopher, created in carbon fiber and plexiglass materials. The figure will be depicted in a contemplative pose, with a look of deep concentration in its posture. The sculpture will be interactive, with a key input in the base that allows viewers to engage with the thought generation and explore different philosophical ideas and questions. Most importantly, the sculpture will be equipped with AI technology that will allow it to respond to visitors' questions and engage in conversation.
02 THE MESSAGE
As technology advances, the question of what it means to be human and the relationship between humans and machine. The concept of an artificial thinker, an algorithm capable of deep thought and contemplation, raises important questions about the nature of consciousness, intelligence, and the meaning of existence. This sculpture will be an engaging and thought-provoking representation of these questions, inviting viewers to contemplate their own relationship to technology and their place in the world.
This monumental sculpture of an artificial philosopher will be a powerful symbol of the intersection of art, technology, and philosophy, and will serve as a catalyst for public engagement and reflection on these important contemporary issues. It consists of the physical form of a crystallised humanoid sitting at 3 meters tall and the AI brain. Its scale is key; reflecting that it is other than human, bigger than we can characterise and comprehend.
YONDER technology will help billions of people gain access to this planet’s most valuable asset: knowledge. No matter where or who they are.
This proposal seeks funding for the creation of a monumental sculpture of an artificial philosopher, to be exhibited in BRC. The sculpture will be a powerful symbol of the intersection of art, technology, and philosophy, and will serve as a catalyst for public engagement and reflection on these important contemporary issues.
I have conceptualised and developed the prototyped the sculpture for more than a year, I am very passionate about bringing it to life and I would be honoured to receive your support for this project.
Physical manufacturing of the sculpture is based on already developed and measured 3D file.
The brain part of the sculpture is a deep learning based language model that sources knowledge and synthesises a new paradigm.
The joy of transportation and getting there. Once the items above are paid for and set into production these funds will be used for transportation costs to take the project to Black Rock City.
The budget for this project includes the cost of materials, fabrication, transportation, installation, and maintenance of the sculpture. The budget also includes the cost of developing the interactive display and AI technology.
DEMOCRATIZING ACCESS TO KNOWLEDGE
STEP BY STE
HELP MAKE IT POSSIBLE
Your financial support makes the new thinking possible and will help ORACLE IO to come to life and engage in deep philosophical conversations with us. Who knows, this will be a total experiment, something absolutely new! Even I don’t know what the end results of this spectacle would be. Let's find out together!
