            How can design approach machine learning and artificial intelligence? This intervention presents works by students of three programs dealing with design and/of technology. The works engage with the technologies and practices of building intelligent systems but also explore their aesthetic, cultural and social implications. As a collection of experimental pieces that follow a research through design methodology, they explore the entangled ways training, rehearsing and maintenance are needed to deal with the reciprocal Otherness in human-machine relations.
