ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

The science of artificial intelligence is profoundly changing our world. Science, of course, depends on scientists. But where do scientists come from? I believe it is often the futuristic toys we play with and the science fiction movies and TV shows we watch as children that inspire us to dream of a career in science. These six photographs draw a connection between the inspirational spark and the outcome. They also bring together my passion for fine art with my career in information technology.

Each photograph of a vintage toy represents an application of artificial intelligence. The lucite pane protecting the photograph is laser-etched with an example of machine learning computer code written for that application. The etched letters cast a shadow on the photograph behind them. Each photograph is offered in a limited edition of five prints.

I exhibited this portfolio at the United Nations’ 2019 AI for Good Global Summit in Geneva, Switzerland, and will exhibit it July 5 - August 31 at the 2019 Laguna Beach Festival of Arts.
