Footy Cyber Dreaming

Dr Baden Pailthorpe


This project follows the 2018 CLANGER exhibition at UTS Arts, Sydney, and will be jointly supervised by Dr Baden Pailthorpe from the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences.

AI technologies seek to explain and understand what a computer is observing. In this project, the computer is observing the details of a footy match. The computer's observations include measurements made by micro wearable units on footy players; e.g., GPS radios and accelerometers. In this project we seek to interrogate the AI, to create compelling visualisations of how it abstractly understands footy. Audiences of the artifacts created will engage with insights about how machines learn about and understand human activity, and a new appreciation for the complexity and cultural richness of footy.

The student who undertakes this project should have a deep passion for AI, and a desire to explore the limits of how machines learn, understand, and think about their world. Also, any student undertaking this project should be comfortable subjecting themselves to their own creative processes.
