Anton Budenko, a researcher on ethical human-machine interaction, is the founder of xFuture is Nown, a fashion brand with a deep philosophical concept. I was honoured to be invited to create graphics for the 2019 xFuture is Nown collection.
The 2019 collection theme was machine empathy. The questions posed included: What if artificial intelligence could have human-like empathy? What if an AI system could generate pro-emotions? Is it polite to say 'please' and 'thank you' to Siri, or does it distract the programme from its primary function? How machines perceive human emotions like happiness?
My visual design emerged from these provocative questions and Budenko's research.
