In this day and age, neural systems and deep learning shape the premise of most applications we know as Artificial Intelligence. Such systems are trained on biased datasets and are able, among other things, to perceive, identify and verify human faces in images and videos. Still, they can not understand who we really are as a person. But do we know who we are?
Our own self-perception is constantly changing and we may not even recognise ourselves in yesterday’s self. «more than a category» explores in a participative approach the possibilities of a text-to-image neural network, as a tool to visualise and improve one’s daily self-perception.
