Slide 17

The bots I created try to act as humans. They operate on memes which have been turned into machemes and use the information they find in an almost semantically correct way. This is probably a very good way to survive. On the other hand one can imagine machemes that do not use the information they find literally. To illustrate this I created ‘the colored world’, in which machemes paint the world in colors they find on twitter, people twitter these colors all meaning different things. A blue monday, a blue car…
The ‘colored-world’ draws the color found in a tweet on a world map, at the location where the tweet originated (where the meme became a macheme). While this example is very straight- forward (I could have drawn red circles when the word blue appears), one can imagine associations being made by more complex machemes which no human would every make.
