  • A Liar’s Epistemology: Herbert Simon’s Performative Artificial
           Intelligence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The computer is the perfect tool for simulation because it is the perfect bureaucracy.The Systems Research Laboratory will be studying particular kinds of models—models made of metal, flesh, and blood.In early January 1956 Herbert Simon opened his lecture at Carnegie Tech’s Graduate School of Industrial Administration with a shocking declaration. “Over the Christmas holiday, Al Newell and I invented a thinking machine.”1 What Simon meant was an algorithm he had designed with the computer scientist Allen Newell, called the Logic Theorist. As they were waiting for the completion of the computer implementation of the algorithm, over the Christmas holiday of 1955, on a dark evening in an administration building, the ... Read More

  • How to Make a Class: Hayek’s Neoliberalism and the Origins of
           Connectionism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Mind thus becomes to me a continuous stream of impulses, the significance of each and every contribution of which is determined by the place in the pattern of channels through which they flow within the pattern of all available channels—with newly arriving afferent impulses, set up by external or internal stimuli, merely diverting this flow into whatever direction the whole flow is disposed to move. . . . I liked to compare this flow of “representative” neural impulses, largely reflecting the structure of the world in which the central nervous system lives, to a stock of capital being nourished by inputs and giving a continuous stream of outputs—only fortunately, the stock of this capital cannot be used up.Homo ...

  • What Is (Machine) Philosophy'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This interview with the digital media theorist Luciana Parisi opens with a hypothesis that is startling yet nowadays impossible to dismiss: Cybernetics is not merely the name for that postwar metascience of command and control. Rather, it names a far grander program, one that Parisi sees as effecting a “historical reconfiguration of metaphysics on behalf of technics.” This interview asks about the meaning and consequences of this troublesome hypothesis but, in continuation with the ethos of Parisi’s previous work, steers away from the all-too-easy poiesis-as-panacea solution to the present computational quagmire. Instead, the interview follows Parisi’s descent into the computational medium, into the specificity of ... Read More

  • Movement in Repose: Notes on Form of Life

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For the Qurʾan says, “If all the sea were ink for my Sustainer’s words, the sea would indeed be exhausted ere my Sustainer’s words are exhausted. And [thus it would be] if we were to add to it sea upon sea.” So what the faithful can do is not to try and translate his words into other words (to interpret apparent contradictions away) but to awaken the ensouled body into practicing a form of life in submission to him.Then you will be able to know your soul, how distant she is from the world, and how great an intermingling she has with the world.Talal Asad has shown that “belief,” in its modern iterations, is at once irrevocably individual and socially secured through its network of effects. With its “legal functions” ... Read More

  • Networks of Belief: An Introduction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Who says everything is a network' Everyone, it seems. In philosophy, Bruno Latour: ontology is a network. In literary studies, Franco Moretti: Hamlet is a network. In the military, Donald Rumsfeld: the battlefield is a network. . . . Thus I characterize the first assumption—“everything is a network”—as a kind of network fundamentalism. It claims that whatever exists in the world appears naturally in the form of a system, an ecology, an assemblage, in short, as a network.It no longer registers as a shock to hear proclamations of an emerging age of networks, of algorithms, of artificial intelligence, of machine learning, robotics, ubiquitous digital devices, or the cloud. From economics to genetics, computation is ... Read More

      Abstract: In mid-March 2020 the San Francisco Bay Area implemented the United States’ first shelter-at-home order, directing all residents except essential workers to remain at home and avoid socializing with those outside their households. Overnight Qui Parle’s weekly board meetings moved from our drab, windowless attic office to the patchwork of digitally rendered heads on screens that presented to one another the intimacies of our living spaces.In our relative states of isolation and (un)health—many of us stupefied with grief, fear, and outrage from the tragedies of the global COVID-19 plague and the political uprising in the wake of the police murder of George Floyd—Qui Parle board members reflected on this unprecedented ...

  • Collective Tissue

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The trick about breath is that what goes in does not come out. Alveoli, dendritic sacs in the lungs, collect oxygen and exchange it for carbon dioxide, the fuel and waste of cells respiring at microscopic scale. Breath mediates in the word’s fundamental sense. In an unfolding ecological crisis and acute respiratory pandemic, twin technobiological catastrophes, we now face the question: What do media make us'Breath offers provisional models. In an inhale, we become storage media, collective tissue recording trace inscriptions. Take the ultrafine dust sloughed off a 3D printer, whose heady aromas testify to a technocultural vanguard. In the nozzle’s heat, thermoplastic metastasizes into vapor and particulate matter. ... Read More

  • Grass-Colored Air: Breathing with Osaki Midori

      Abstract: Breath holds time.In a short set of passages on spring from 1934, the Japanese novelist and film critic Osaki Midori (1896–1971), who had suffered a breakdown and left Tokyo for her native Tottori Prefecture two years before, includes the following telegram. It is characteristic of the modernist style for which her work is known:monsieur hamada congratulations on winning prize stop open tired old second floor window and breathe in lungfuls grass colored air stop propose toast in my heart to spring stop overworked stove in your workshop can relax stop my spring is three thirteen carried over from autumn stop1Reading this sealed in my room in October, with my overworked air purifier on full blast as the smoke swirled ...

  • The Anti-giraffe

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The other day someone asked me how I would summarize the moment we are living in. My answer was that we are experiencing a total loss of perspective compensated only by an outstanding agility. Our incapacity to determine relations of cause and effect according to point of view is rewarded by a suppleness of form in responding to quick-shifting scenarios. The now-this-now-that sway of motion associated with the swift resolve of governmental leaders, market impulses, or media warfare is turning us into agile athletes whose intent is no longer to predict where things are going but to adapt as new situations erupt.It is no wonder that calls for supra-agility come precisely when, due to a global pandemic, our breathing ...

  • A Philippine Asphyxia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: My eighty-seven-year-old father cuts holes in his masks. He says he can’t breathe otherwise. The fabric—whether stretchy, cotton, or woven—keeps him from taking full breaths, he protests. When we’re out, he pulls his mask below his nose, irreverent about public health guidance. His breathing, iyan ang kailangan (that’s what’s needed), COVID-19 be damned.He was in Quezon City, Philippines, at the time of the first round of global coronavirus lockdowns. The numbers did not abate with the summer heat, and neither did the extrajudicial killings the presentday Philippine president rains on the populace. My father lived alone and preferred it that way. Until he couldn’t. The people he saw regularly—the buko (coconut) ... Read More

  • Groan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Listen. There’s no introduction to Nina Simone’s rendition of “Strange Fruit,” only a single note. Her voice emerges. Rough. Direct. Accusing. Denouncing. Her entire performance is predicated on the tightly controlled breath: each word bears the weight of her lungs, none left unarticulated or lost among the bitter poignancy of images made into word.Placing Nina Simone’s rendition of “Strange Fruit” is an effort in trying to place breath. Simone’s interpretation is no wail or cry. Hers is a performance steeped in a Black tradition of breathing, born of centuries of fugitivity and bearing the scars of a people trying to live in hostile atmospheres. Her “for the leaves to drop” extends “leaves” for a full seven ... Read More

  • An Immanence without the World: On Dispossession, Nothingness, and
           Secularity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: What follows is an attempt to put into question a basic conceptual distribution that, in one form or another, is operative in countless theoretico-historical accounts of modernity. It seeks to trouble the all-too-obvious conceptual association that binds immanence to the secular, to the worldly, and to the human—in opposition to transcendence, which acts as a sign of the divine or the religious. This basic distribution undergoes complex permutations and conflicting evaluations in the accounts of the legitimacy or, by contrast, the essential nihilism of modernity. Nevertheless, it remains consistently operative, functioning not only in genealogies of modernity but also in more speculative registers—for example, in ... Read More

  • Living In/difference; or, How to Imagine Ambivalent Networks

      Abstract: “The network” has become a defining concept of our epoch. From high-speed financial networks that erode national sovereignty to networking sites like Facebook that have transformed the meaning and function of the word “friend,” from Twitter feeds that foster new political alliances to unprecedented globe-spanning viral vectors that threaten worldwide catastrophe, networks allegedly capture everything that is new or different about our social institutions, global formations, and political, financial, and military organizations. From Bruno Latour’s discussion of actor-network-theory (ANT) to network science, from Jean-François Lyotard’s evocative description of the postmodern self as a “nodal point” to Tiziana ... Read More
