In his series DEFECTS, Ilya Bliznets speculates on what flaws artificial intelligence would leave if employed to recover human memory. Today's technologies can assist in the restoration of lost memories, and artificial intelligence can be used to evaluate data and establish links between diverse events, allowing people to remember what they had once forgotten. However, the process of memory retrieval can be hard and time-consuming. Some technologies can only recover a portion of the lost memories, while others can have harmful side effects. It is important to be aware of how technology can alter our memories and personalities.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
DEFECTS, the series of 3 NFTs by Ilya Bliznets, is part of the exhibition RECOLLECTION. AI AND MEMORY presented by EXPANDED.ART in collaboration with The NFT Gallery at their galleries in New York and London, 11 April – 13 May 2023.
19 artists explore the idea of further challenging the concreteness of human memory—personal or collective—through creative collaboration with AI. Memories are nebulous.
Scientific studies and phenomena such as "The Mandela Effect" have shown that humans rarely recall things in their unbiased exactitude. Artificial Intelligence already assists human memory in the form of predictive text and GPS navigation. One would surmise that there exists a role for AI when it comes to supplementing even more complex memory.
