A series of public programs hosting invited tech professionals as well as artists and researchers from the fields of machine learning, artificial intelligence, information system design, and digital archive infrastructures, New Approaches to Data continues with an online presentation by Gene Kogan. An artist and programmer interested in autonomous systems, collective intelligence, generative art, and computer science, Kogan will examine the creative economy of machine learning and AI arts, along with new possibilities for artistic exploration using AI and crypto together.

New Approaches to Data focuses on the Istanbul Encyclopedia Archive taken over by Kadir Has University, and the three-year project conducted in collaboration with SALT to digitize this comprehensive archive and provide public access through an online software. The public program series is organized by Digilogue, which has recently joined in the project as the digital infrastructure and system development partner. Founded by Zorlu Holding and Zorlu Performing Arts Center, Digilogue aims to contribute to the ongoing digitization process of Reşad Ekrem Koçu’s unique Istanbul Encyclopedia, by providing a platform to critically evaluate the contemporary systems proposed during the New Approaches to Data programs.

Kogan’s presentation (in English) will be livestreamed on SALT Online YouTube Channel.
