Beyond The Uncanny Valley: Being Human in the Age of AI

Published to accompany the 2020 exhibition at the de Young Museum, the contemporary uncanny valley is no longer limited to the image of the humanlike robot or "thinking machine." It is mapped by the inscrutable calculations of algorithms that are designed to mine and analyze humans' behavior and project it into tradable futures. It is occupied by our statistical doubles, spread across stacks and reflected back to us in a ceaseless visual montage of hot triggers...The uncanny valley of the twenty-first century is emerging as a new form of frontierism whose only goal is ever deeper and more tailored capturing of our attention. Flexibound, 224 pages.
