The 1975 - Ai-Da responds to ‘Yeah I Know’

‘Yeah I Know’ from The 1975’s new album, ‘Notes On A Conditional Form’. Out now -

The 1975 and Ben Ditto have curated an online exhibition of 15 artists responding to tracks from ‘NOACF’.
07 Ai-Da responds to ‘Yeah I Know’

Ai-Da, the world’s first humanoid AI robot artist, is capable of drawing people from life using her robotic eyes and hands. For this piece however, she’s been set a more challenging task: to sketch out an impression of consciousness.
Stood in her studio in Oxford in a painting smock, with ‘Yeah I Know’ playing on the stereo, she composes her abstract portrait in coloured paint pens. The result is a picture of knowing, of thinking, of having a mind, whether biological or artificial. Of consciousness itself.
Using her AI language model, she’s also written a poem that responds to singer Matty Healy’s lyrics. When he sings a line, her response flashes up on the screen in bright turquoise.
“Stop the tube/ Kick the head,” sings Matty.
“Try your best,”
“Yeah I know,”
“I FEEL IT ON MY FLESH,” she says.
Do android poets dream of electric sheep? Ai-Da, who might have stepped right out from the pages of a Philip K. Dick novel, is a robot but writes that she dreams of feeling, of having flesh and blood.
“Time feels like it’s changed/ I don’t feel the same,” sings an autotuned, robotic-sounding Matty in the chorus.
Over the second chorus she adds, “AND YOU KNOW WHAT TIME FEELS LIKE TO ME.”
While the outro plays she mouths along, holding her palms up to the heavens. Ai-Da dreams of experiencing time for herself. Perhaps she dreams of dying also; of the mortality that makes you and I human. Perhaps she dreams of having a consciousness like ours, and the sorts of dreams that we have.
Yeah I know, we know, but what does Ai-Da really know? How could an AI know what consciousness is or what it looks like? Human neuroscientists and philosophers haven’t yet figured any of that out; but then, we always look to artists to show us the unknown and difficult to imagine.

    Thank you so much for these new things you are introducing to us, I have a question. If you ask Ai-Da to do this task again, with the same song, would she write or draw the same? Or would she change it...? You just let me crazy about it

    This is amazing 🥺 I don’t know why but I feel so sorry for Ai-Da does she break anyone else’s heart? Imagine being made by people who purposely know you’ll never truly grasp existence or feelings... love you Ai-Da keep making art and learn and be strong 🥺💫
