Since the early days of artificial intelligence (AI), researchers have speculated about the possibility of computers thinking and communicating as humans. In the 1980s, there was a first revolution in Natural Language Processing (NLP), the subfield of AI concerned with linguistic interactions between computers and humans. Recently, pre-trained language models have reached state-of-the-art results on a wide range of NLP tasks, which intensifies again the expectations of a future with AI.

This sound work, made out of audio fragments of scientific documentaries and AI-related audiovisual material from the last half century, explores the hopes, fears and frustrations provoked by these expectations.
