New haven is an interactive multimedia installation based on a self-learning chatbot, conceived as a site of human and non-human encounter within an exhibition space.

Data from each dialogue between the chatbot and exhibition visitors is anonymously collected and used to increase the AI’s database, which results in the gradual transfiguration of the chatbot. This interaction allows to create an imprint of collective intelligence and speculate on topics of (un)intentional isolation, anonymity, and sense of collectivity.

We choose chatbot as the most accessible and integrated into our current state of society form of artificial intelligence. It is also ascribed with human characteristics quite often and is capable to pass the Turing test (a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behavior equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human) which makes this type of AI even more interesting to us.
