Version Space 6

Version Space is a series of pamphlets transcribing conversations among artists and graduate students in visual art regarding Artificial Intelligence and related topics, originally produced in collaboration with Library Stack and funded by the Artistic Research program of the Sandberg Instituut, where I was a research fellow in the Department of Fine Arts for the academic years 2018–19 and 2019–20, with additional support from KAJE, where I was a 2023 Think Tank resident. The conversations take place via videoconference, are recorded, transcribed by an AI, then edited for clarity by humans, including myself and the participants. The series title is borrowed from a machine learning framework conceived in the 1980s as a technique for identifying a range of possibilities in the overlap between maximally general and maximally specific hypotheses.
