ENCYCLOPEDIA OF EMOTION

WHAT
An interactive installation that plays with poetry and learns to speak with ‘human’ emotion. The project explores how artificial intelligence deals with linguistic expression.

WHY
Robots are considered to be cold and impersonal. But that’s how we have made them. Seo-kyung Kim shows that we can teach computers something else, by feeding them with romantic literature and personal notes.

HOW
This machine operates at the junction between technology and poetry. It asks people to submit expressions of joy, anger, sadness or surprise. With its filled database, it educates itself and starts to create its own metaphors and express its feelings in return.

QUOTE
Language is a central facet of human culture.
