DeepTalking5000 explores the nature of deliberate mistakes in feedback systems to arrive at divergent solutions. A bot constantly listens, eavesdrops, and responds to humans, using imperfect machine learning techniques to reinterpret spoken words. Errors in the model help generate new and unpredictable narratives that loop back into its algorithms. The audience can join in, together creating a broken conversation, a never-ending poem flowing between the personal and the mechanical. DeepTalking5000 asks: can we, humans and machines, learn and evolve from each other.
