The practical side involves a working website/database (, where my research and practical work on the topic of machine learning is presented. The goal of the project should not be a solution proposal that is static. Instead, I wanted to find a way to better explore the world of algorithmic circulation, which we now observe and describe as AI (artificial intelligence). Dialectica-Machina broadly performs as an instrument of discourse, and as an autonomous link that combines current findings from science with design and art. Different views blend to create a meta-exploration of the issues it addresses, which are the complex relationships between man and machine, copy and original, authorship and the digital ecosystem that ushers in our second machine age. An increasingly imminent time.

Diplom Theory
Prof. Dr. Martin Gessmann


What does it mean to work creatively? Is an outward act of creation a sign of intelligent behaviour? Can creativity be grasped mechanically? Or is creativity so deeply hidden inside a person that a computer would only be able to bring it to the surface without making it measurable? In terms of theory, I explored the fundamental role of designers with the purpose of understanding how we as operators of meaning can make use of our ideas in our physical world, including how to use them in a specific manner. At the centre of creation lies remixing. Creating means to observe, copy, modify and then undermine Today more than ever, technology is the means of expression and amplification of this phenomenon and the creative act in general.
