Media installation [Japan]

AI that attacks the video game SUPER XEVIOUS using machine learning. We tend to think that computer programs ought to be perfect, but this game-attacking AI program makes repeated mistakes in the game. Giving the ordinarily invisible AI a cute robot form moves people’s emotions and makes them want to cheer for it. This installation expresses the emotional communication between people and AI in the society of the future.
