‘You, me and my computer’
NODE+CODE #5 – with Lauren McCarthy
Can we use technology to help us be more human? To smile more, to touch and to listen to each other? What if a computer could make decisions about our social relationships better than we could ourselves? Would our interactions be improved by algorithmically determining what to do and say? What happens if we crowdsource our dating lives and actually find love?
In this talk Lauren McCarthy attempted to understand these questions through an artistic practice involving hacking, design, and self-experimentation.
