Neural Exchange
John Gerrard

Inspired by conversations with Lab technology advisors, John Gerrard researched neural networks, - a type of machine intelligence that mimics networks of neurons in the brain. The artist presented these artistic experiments in lecture form alongside the performance debut of a generated simulation. A publication featuring interviews with advisors from Google, NVIDIA and Hyundai relating to this powerful new computing form was also published in 2018.
