Machine Learning generated Barbadian chattel houses. AI Chattel
is a model that dreams of
Bajan architecture, connecting the past, present and future of these unique structures. AI Chattel
bridges the gaps between art, technology, culture and architecture.
Machine Learning (ML) is the study of computer algorithms that improve automatically through
experience. It is seen as a subset of artificial intelligence. ML algorithms build a mathematical
model based on sample data, known as "training data", in order to make predictions or decisions
without being explicitly programmed to do so.
The objective of this project is to show an important and yet mostly forgotten characteristic about
architecture; architecture is alive, lives among us and is capable of stimulating our senses. The
project will engage the public through intimate art installations and large scale public projections
across the island.
