With her work “Artificial Intelligence for Governance, Kitty AI, 2016” imagining an AI taking over the world. (Yoldas, 2017) The 3D animated video presents a cat talking about its work as ruler of a megalopolis in the year 2039 (Yoldas, 2017) It talks about the unsolvable problems like the refugee crisis, climate change. The kitty AI forms a non-human government. This speculative future shows the power AI could potentially take on. Yoldas makes crossovers between science, real world-issues and creates a speculative but not unthinkable future. It questions the relationship between human and nonhuman and criticality assesses our position towards AI. As Verhoeven referred to in our conversation, when we understand our relationship with technology we are able to distribute value through it instead of making it the subject of matter. When taking in account DAO’s and smart contracts, it rules out positions of central power for human entities and places control in hands of nonhumans. This shows the urgency of developing a mindset that works with something as ephemeral and liquid as data.
