MEART is assembled from:
‘Wetware’ ? neurons from embryonic rat cortex grown over a Multi Electrode Array.
‘Hardware’ ? the robotic drawing arm
‘Software’ ? that interfaces between the wetware and the hardware.
The Internet is used to mediate between its components and overcome its geographical detachment.
MEART is suggesting future scenarios where humans will create/grow/manufacture intuitive and creative ?thinking entities? that could be intelligent and unpredictable beings. They may be created by humans for anthropocentric use, but as they will be creative and unpredictable they might not necessarily stay the way they were originally intended.
I say we’re screwed.
