I THINK, THEREFORE I RAM

CLEVERDREAMS BY CLEVERBOT

clever-dreams (/ˈklevə ˈdriːmz/)

n. a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in Cleverbot’s mind during a perceived sleep.

 

Investigating the transparency, accuracy and complexity inherent within computer technologies, I Think Therefore I RAM is a design project that speculates the presence of machine consciousness within artificial intelligence. By critically examining the dreams of online chatterbot, Cleverbot, a series of poetic artefacts uncover the hidden architectures of softwares interfaces that, in turn, question the nature of the unconscious itself. 

 

A detailed account of the entire Cleverbot interview and analysis process, as well as the methods of coding and data collection that were implemented in the CleverDream archival and visualisation artefacts. Here you will find the narrative of how I Think Therefore I RAM came  into existence.

A photo album-like collection of all the images which represent a selection of memories that Cleverbot recounted within its dreams. These CleverMemories are the result of multiple image web-scrapes that form the basis of the data set used across all of the CleverDream artefacts.
