    J Rosenbaum

    J. Rosenbaum is an artist exploring the boundaries of technology and art. Their most recent works examine the nature of non-binary transness and their own gender and sexuality. They create technologically based art using physics based rendering, Deep Neural Networks and Augmented Reality. Their PhD at RMIT was centered around AI perceptions of gender. As a disabled artist the human body has always been a source of interest in Rosenbaum’s art with a focus on mythical and archaeological stories. This fascination continues in their Computer Generated works with a basis in classical art and history.


This talk is summary of my PhD findings with a focus on the artworks and research projects I created to analyze why AI perceives gender. I will examine how we can debias and rewrite the ways AI thinks about gender, how large systems reinforce gender biases and the artworks I have made to communicate these issues. This talk is about exploring ways to create equitable systems and ensure that we teach AI to look at gender as more than a binary and as more than a classification. I will explore my major research projects, the code and technology behind them and how I aim to explore new ways to consider gender using AI.
