The work aims to expose the creation of an Artificial Intelligence and its workings to a general public, dealing with the bias within programming, the notion of losing control in a world supervised by machines and the utopia of creating an all-knowing Big Data oracle.
The program creates text and music based on the public ́s input, based upon which an opera singer is improvising.
