Konsep Karya
We are a batch of data, easy to read and spread across the universe. As a part of an already open civilization, such data is willing to be categorized, to be uniformed and to be labeled. Read using algorithm, human taste can be designed, measured and valued.
 
Algorithm begets prediction, scenario and also fantasy. The existed human data injected with a new life goal. Building a living space, a new civilization and a new sets of values. It has become our supervisor for our behavior. A smart, mechanic, exact and intolerant calculation.
 
The role of human in their own civilization slowly disappears and turning themselves as the object of artificial intelligence algorithm. Thus many conflicts arise from this stupidity. Can this artificial intelligence represent the human civilization? And turn it into an enlightenment?


Kita adalah kumpulan data, yang jelas terbaca dan menyebar disemesta. Bagian  dari peradaban yang sudah terbuka, data ini membuka dirinya untuk dipilah, diseragamkan dan diberi label. Dibaca dengan algoritma, selera manusia dapat dirancang, diukur dan dinilai.
 
Oleh algoritma muncullah prediksi, skenario dan juga fantasi. Data manusia yang ada disuntik dengan tujuan hidup yang baru. Membuatkan ruang hidup,peradaban baru dan  dengan nilai-nilai baru. Dia telah menjadi pengawas atas perilaku kita. Sebuah perhitungan yang cerdas, mekanis, tepat dan minus toleransi.
 
Peran manusia atas peradabannya sendiri, perlahan hilang dan menjadikannya sebagai obyek algoritma kecerdasan buatan. Sehingga banyak  muncul konflik karena kebodohan ini. Akankah  kecerdasan buatan ini dapat mewakili peradaban manusia? Dan menjadikannya sebagai sebuah pencerahan?
