Maja Smrekar, !brute_force, Feeding the Alghoritm

Neural networks learn by analysing cases: the higher the number of cases, the more they learn to recognise and solve problems. Because they require the maximum possible quantity of input data, Smrekar and her team will feed the neural network algorithm in the gallery daily by climbing up and down the installation with the dog. Visitors will be able to follow the physiological measurement data of the artist and the dog as well as the neural network’s real-time data processing with the use of the !brute_force interface on their smart phones.
