Work: Japanese AUJIK presents it’s latest manifestation that deals with Artificial General Intelligence and complex dialectical sentiment systems. Music specially composed by Mira Calix featuring cellist Oliver Coates. About: AUJIK’s visual manifestation ‘impermanence trajectory: stained seed’ is based upon the idea of Computational Dialectics via Complex Sentiment Systems. By using dialectical values that is the concept and phenomena expressed in terms of conflict, contradiction, opposite, difference, etc. In thought, nature, and society it is the motive force both of nature and of human endeavor, leading to a further trajectory of development. It consists of two subjects: agent X and agent Y. Each subject is exposed to eight different emotional inputs that determine a value. Values are also influenced by four different forces. These forces either combine or divide the emotional values, rendering random outcomes depending on their previous state, their environment, and the state of the other agent. The trajectory starts with an initial state where the two agents plant a seed each. The seed grows according to the emotional states of the agent and the impact of the forces. During the evolution of the seed, the tree – which represents the object – also changes its form and gradually blossoms before it collapses due to a self-inflicted virus. The virus generates a portal system – through the tress core – that implicates yet another realm of emotions and consciousness that will allow them to reanimate the process again and adjust it. Optimizing the cognitive and emotional parameters to sufficiency. The agents’ emotional states are visualized by their heads, which are symmetric and reminiscent of a Rorschach test. Their values and force impact can be seen at the lower sides of the picture. The agents themselves can be described as variables and algorithms as used in computer code for developing Artificial General Intelligence. By applying their emotional states to a dialectical format (thesis, anti-thesis & synthesis), they aim to improve their emotional outcomes and refining in to an impermanence perfection. Artificial General Intelligence and computational dialectical emotional systems. Inspired by the article ‘Computational Dialectics for Arguing Agents’ by professor Hajime Sawamura at Niigata University. About Mira Calix: Mira Calix is the stage name of Chantal Passamonte, a British based artist signed to Warp Records. Although her earlier music is almost exclusively electronic, in recent years she has incorporated classical instrumentation into her work for performance, recording and installations.

User Bio AUJIK are an contemporary artist mainly working with CGI-video, photos, installations, clothes, music and paintings. Concept of the work is how Strong AI/AGI(Artificial General Intelligence)transcends with the human mind and vice verse. AUJIK is constructed as an esoteric group who believes in animism and worships nature. They divide nature in to: Refined: robotics artificial intelligence nano technology dna manipulation augemented reality body enhancements carbon nano tubes synthetic photosynthesis Primitive: trees plants soil organism stones metals minerals foliage AUJIK been featured at events such as Prix Ars Electronica 2011(honorary mention award: computer animation/vfx/film), Ars Electronica animation festival 2011, OnedotZero 2010&2011, Japan Media Arts Festival 2010, STRP festival, CMoDA Creative future exhibition Beijing 2012, Computer Space, SIGGRAPH Asia Singapore.
