Web project, dimension variable, 2017
As artificial intelligence chatbots learn how to articulate human language through chatting, they also acquire sets of connotations, ideologies, biases that are intricately embedded in our language. How would it be when it comes to a different system of symbols or different modes of communication? How might it reflect and shape our communication in the digital era? In this project, I plan to create a chatbot MOJI that only understands emojis and only replies with emojis. Through chatting with the audience, MOJI would learn from people’s behaviors (in using emojis) and possibly “evolve” in a way we would not expect.
