Artificial Intelligence and false hopes: Asunder

“Asunder is an art project that responds to a growing interest in the application of AI to critical environmental challenges. […] It’s a fictional ‘environmental manager’ that proposes and simulates future alterations to the planet to keep it safely within planetary boundaries, with what are often completely unacceptable or absurd results. In doing so, Asunder questions assumptions of computational neutrality, our increasingly desperate reach for techno-solutionist fixes to planetary challenges, and the broader ideological framing of the environment as a system.” (from the artists’s website)

Found in Tactical Tech’s exhibition.
