Art, Statistical Modelling, Normativity

Cross-referencing David Bowie’s songs against their chart success to produce a perfect Bowie song –

For me that song is “Ashes To Ashes”, though. 😉

If art is ideologically normative representation then this US Military simulation of the world is contemporary art of the highest order –

And the brain may be a Bayesian Probability engine (much as it used to be clockwork, or a computer?) –

The layered feedback model of perception has long made sense to me from my study of art, and I think that Minsky’s “Society of Mind” is an idea worth revisiting with a statistical rather than rule-based basis.
