David Usher creates AI artwork that gets smarter through conversation
'We Could Be Human: A Learning Machine' exhibit open at Phi Centre until September
Montreal singer David Usher is diving further into artificial intelligence technology with a new work at the Phi Centre that will learn from visitors as it interacts with them.
A digital character named Ophelia will be speaking with visitors all summer as part of the We Could Be Human: A Learning Machine art installation. It was created by Usher and his company Reimagine AI.
"Over the four, five months she's here, she will go from a very simple place to getting much more intelligent," Usher said.
Last year, Usher started incorporating AI into his music.
He said that in a few years, he believes people will be able to hold a conversation with AI the same way they do with other humans.
