A Model for a Politician

@ Constant

rue du Fortstraat 5, 1060 Saint-Gilles / Sint-Gillis

////////////////////////////////

With a Model for a Politician, Gijs de Heij researches the role of language and image profiles in politics and their ability to influence our judgement. Constant will host The Weekly Address in its window, a device that employs speech recognition and machine learning to analyse patterns in a politician’s way of speaking. While machine learning recognises patterns and produces reliable and repeatable results based on a data set, politicians construct patterns through rhetoric, often repeating their message to convey their own truth. Come get a first glimpse of the installation during the opening on Thursday 23 November 2017 at 18:00 !
