Grasping AI systems


Published on

Our paper handles the disconnect between the sophisticated digital systems and the experience of them.
In particular, we focus on the new artificial intelligence systems that are being brought into many fields of society -including education.

Moreover, we are hoping to broaden the conversation around how such technologies shape the whole discourse around them.
What we mean is that we are (not only) interested on the meaning of those systems, but also how those systems have such a strong gravitational pull, that we might be missing some basic critical questions around them.

In other words, in this paper we discuss how AI-systems could be grasped, that is, understood without the technical knowledge of the AI-systems.

  11. 11. Corporeality of Artificial Intelligence digi-grasping defines such skills that can not be measured in more common digital talents, such as code skills, software skills, electronic skills. Digi-grasping can thus be used to measure and express such knowledge of digital being that could be hard to do otherwise.
