AI vs Baby is an exploration of neuroscience, artificial intelligence, racial bias and memory, using pedagogy and movement to unpack responsive differences between a child and a virtual digital assistant.
Emele Ugavule is a Tokelauan Fijian multidisciplinary storyteller. Her work centres the development of ethical trans-Indigenous collaborative creative processes and outcomes informed by Indigenous epistemologies, ontologies and cosmologies. In this work she explores how the myth of unconscious bias reinforces whiteness as a default lens.
Working with collaborators Amy Zhang and Jackson Garcia – choreographers and dancers who draw from street styles, hip hop and contemporary – this team is combining their interests in intercultural explorations to begin this new experimental work, while currently residing at opposite ends of the country due to COVID-19.
