“But Petraitis’ project takes machine learning at its word, at least to begin: he examines its learning capacities, both by measuring its progress over time, but also by permitting a direct relation to be drawn between the image and its reading – a semiotic act, in which we as viewers can participate, comparing the caption to our own understanding. And yet we might sense that Petraitis also asks a more complex and serious question than this: if we are going to entrust a lot of our decisions to devices and software, then shouldn’t we know what and how they think?”
