Two-channel study for "Liminal Performance (Agent Qi/氣): Innocence, Agony, Ecstasy", a machine learning training session where Agent Qi (氣) transitions from innocence to ecstasy in an attempt to reach infinity. Twenty four instances of Agent Qi is trained in real-time to present a rhizomatic performance where Qi attempts all possibilities. Sound is from open source recordings of Buddhist mantras processed in real time.

Two-channel study for "Liminal Performance (Agent άλφα): Not a Pipe at the Threshold of Consciousness", a machine learning training session where Agent άλφα attempts to reach a synthetic pipe (and doesn't learn much in the process). Twenty four instances of Agent άλφα are trained in real-time to present a rhizomatic performance where άλφα attempts all bodily possibilities. Sound is from open source recordings of Buddhist mantras processed in real time.

Left: One example of many Western attempts at Cartesian analysis of the Japanese Rock Garden at Ryoanji in Kyoto, Japan.

Right: Sentient agent perceiving a synthetic rock garden (two philosophical ideas as it relates to consciousness in friction within a simulation: Western Cartesian knowledge and the Eastern suggestion of infinity and emptiness). The sentient agent training can suggest a rhizomatic approach to perception (Deleuze), suggesting infinite vantage points and pathways (albiet not all of them will lead anywhere). The rock garden suggests letting go of all thoughts, distractions, and ego (the agents seem to have no ego other than the will to recieve a reward). Fuzzy logic is applied by the agent in order to develop a consensus of the T-shaped platform that is numerically refined over time by training within the system. At the current environment's scale, it takes 1.5 million simulated training steps in order to achieve a reliable degree of performance from the agent.

*Many early successful applications of fuzzy logic were implemented in Japan including handwriting recognition systems by Sony, pocket computers, helicopter flight aids, to early recognition of earthquake detection through the Japanese Institute of Seismology Bureau of Meteorology.

Screencapture of multiple instances of a synthetic agent, the bicycle stool, training on multiple instances of the same environment. Agents use synthetic vision in order to gain a consensus of the T-shaped platform that is numerically trained over time. A reward is given to the agent each time it passes through the door. A negative reward is given each time the agent falls off the T-shaped platform.
