The Other Side: Algorithm as Ritual in Artificial Intelligence


Tomorrow morning (Wed April 25, 9am Montréal time) Kieran Browne and I are performing an Artificial Intelligence divination ritual as part of the alt.chi session Scary, Sporty, Ginger and Posh.

This is not a talk about the ritual; we will be performing the ritual live at CHI, using an analog computing apparatus to communicate with an artificial intelligence to divine the answers to our questions.

The ritual will start on time at 9am in room 514B—it’s a small room, so please come a touch early to make sure you don’t miss out on a seat.

See Kieran’s blog for more details about tomorrow’s ritual, and read the paper for the full story.
