Synopsis: Our memories have lost their corporeality. They no longer smell of smoke, bits don’t fall off them, and we don’t hang them on walls; they are organised in algorithms of ones and zeros. Now, saved to the cloud, memory has become public and fuels the intelligence of the machine: artificial intelligence. The machine wants to be like human beings and learn for itself, but what if, before it learns to live with us, it rises up against its creator like in the old myths and legends, like Frankenstein? Might we be leaving behind the most important part of memory—the act of re-minding, of forgetting? A video essay about a few aspects of the complex human-machine relationship.
