Walking the dog in latent space at University of Bochum

Presentation with Thomas Hawranke

As part of a Menagerie of Virtual Animals at the University of Bochum, Thomas Hawranke will present some work-in-process in which we approach the latent space of neural network image classification and generation by looking at the Yorkshire Terrier. Under the title “Gassi gehen im latent space / Walking the dog in latent space” we will try to shed some light on the technological and cultural role of animals (and the Yorkshire Terrier in particular) in contemporary artificial intelligence.

The menagerie is the closing event of the DFG-funded project “Inter-species collaboration.”
