SIBYL – Robert Lisek

SIBYL is Artificial Intelligence installation that offers an innovative fusion between three domains: storytelling, linguistics and artificial intelligence. SIBYL will be presented as an immersive installation in St.Nicholas Kirk Yard and invites the audience to take part through ‘tweets’ sent to the programme.

The AI deep learning software and analog sound-video synthesisers react in real-time to generate new narratives based on the suggested input of users. SIBYL is an autonomous agent that has also been trained with literary classics from authors such as Pynchon, Gibson, Lem, Orwell and Kafka.

Robert B. Lisek is an artist, mathematician and composer who focuses on systems and processes (computational, biological, social). He is involved in the number of projects focused on radical art strategies, hacktivism and tactical media. Drawing upon conceptual art, software art and meta-media, his work intentionally defies categorization. Lisek is a pioneer of art based on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Lisek is also a composer of contemporary music, author of many projects and scores on the intersection of spectral, stochastic, concret music, musica futurista and noise.
