Description Artificial intelligence is a broad scientific field which is formed by an anthropocentric and utilitarian approaches to defining and measuring of the research goals (human intelligence is a measure of artificial systems performance and evaluation criteria are utility and system performance in terms of performing man-defined tasks). This paper brings an alternative approach to artificial intelligence exploration, which can be described as speculative investigations of machinic externalities. To do so, we programmed AI curator to organize dataset containing documentaries of COVID–19 artistic projects and traces of everyday experiences of the artists. Our goal was to test limits of the artificial neural networks – the AI-curator. We wanted to use the AI-curator not as a tool but as an alien agent. Our goal was to present the dataset (the Black Box) from the machinic perspective of IA. What have we found out?
