The subtitles in this video are exerts from the Collective Dreamworld’s continuous narrative. The Collective Dreamworld Project is an experiment in shared knowledge (conscious and unconscious) built in collaboration with the GPT-3, OpenAI’s large-scale language-generation model.
The AI builds the Collective Dreamworld by weaving together dreams, then generates outputs in the first person, reporting on experiences with people, places, and things that populates it. All artists in Pilosus Nuces Orbis have submitted dreams to the project.
Gioj De Marco reviewed, edited, and revised the language to give it a syncopated cadence, reminiscent of how we recall and recount dreams: in bits and pieces. She takes ultimate responsibility for the content of this text and wishes to acknowledge Loris D’Acunto, the engineer co-author of the Collective Dreamworld Project. (www.collectivedreamworld.com)
