However normal our thoroughly digitized lives may seem to us, and however complete the transition from analog to metaverse may be, the Oracle illustrates how each and every one of us, in essence, is preoccupied with the same questions:Where do we come from? Where are we going? What are we supposed to do with our time?
Answers to these questions that drive our curiosity and occupy us deep down inside have been unavailable to human kind for millennia and will probably remain so. Regardless, to questions such as these, which are not easily answered, the oracle responds.
The "Oracle" is an interactive generative art installation collaboratively created by Rivka Dette, interdisciplinary artist from Berlin, and Gene Kogan, programmer and generative artist, based in San Francisco.The Oracle program works with the neural network language processing model known as GPT-3. Visitors of the installation can ask any question, which will be randomly answered by the oracle's artificial intelligence.
