It’s all about the feelings… will be a pilot practice-based research project, exploring sentience recognition, bias and performance. It is intended as a first step towards an ambitious, large-scale touring performance work, which would take these pressing themes and concerns from academia to the wider general public. The key objectives of the project are to extend upon ethical, philosophical and HCI research around sentiment recognition and AI, using creative research methods, and to test the feasibility of sentiment recognition as a tool and medium for performance.
