Marco Kempf: „DeepWorld“

DeepWorld is a compilation of “artificial countries” generated by neural networks which used data of all existing countries (around 195) to generate new anthems, flags and other descriptors. The project is a hybrid of critical reflection on national identities in combination with practical research in deep learning applications, such as Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) and Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN). This generated ‘world model’ acts less as utopian alternative to our physical world, than as a view of our world from the ‘eye’ of an alternative intelligence.
First meant as an digital project as a wikipedia-like-homepage, I want to present the deepWorld Project as an room multimedia installation at the beyond festival.
