We are becoming more and more reliant on Artificial Intelligence.
What are the long-term ramifications when AI makes recommendations for us in the most personal areas of our lives? From who we date, to how we spend our money, to the information we consume – what happens when algorithms govern how we live and we willingly obey?
‘MIMIC’ is an interactive web documentary about our evolving human relationship with artificial intelligence. The film includes a diverse array of voices to capture how predictive algorithms affect people’s everyday lives.
The audience is asked to participate at select input points throughout the experience, contributing to a collective portrait, and propagating a visual dialectic between human and machine. ‘MIMIC’ strives to create opportunities of reflection for the viewer and provoke the audience to question their own technological dependencies.
The premiere is a live event where ticket holders will have access to take part in ‘MIMIC’’s collective portrait. Following the ~20min experience, there will be a Q&A and discussion with the creators. ‘MIMIC’ will be accessible right after the premiere and until May 2 on CPH:DOX’s website.
April 26, 7:15 p.m CET / Premiere followed by a Q&A / 45 min
