Event Description

Benjamin Bratton is a Professor at UC San Diego and director of Antikythera; a private research program studying the future of planetary computation. He will present work in progress from new collaborations with Astrophysicist and Assembly Theorist, Sara Walker, on the philosophical figure of planetary intelligence in contrast with posthumanist neo-dualisms, and with Google Research and Deep Mind on cognitive infrastructures, human-AI interaction design, generative multi-agent simulation, physicalized AI in evolutionary robotics, and structures of “fractal intelligence.”
