A city in yellow for the machine, new spaces for the human.
Expressions of a microcosm of high technology and delicate beauty, microlandscapes of artificial intelligence created by the human mind. A tiny corner of a microprocessor, and its instruction decode unit, (field view size: 0.029 x 0.044 in).
The multidisciplinary field of artificial intelligence and its never-ending search for new devices and forms of communication between man and machine, as well as new areas of knowledge like neuroinformatics, microelectronics, nanotechnology, neuroscience, bioinformatics, or bionics, reflect the unquenchable thirst of humans for knowledge and new tools, which have characterized our species for the last three million years.
Microprocessors and brains are extremely complex control devices running a variety of devices or organs connected to them.
The central processing unit has transformed modern society, a precise machine running programs and instructions and performing logic and arithmetic operations with binary data at staggering speeds. The unassuming device depicted here is only a few square millimeters in size, but it represents decades of technological research in an internal microarchitecture so surprising that it defies the foresighting abilities of any rational mind. Progresses in artificial intelligence hinge on this device, a landmark of technological development and a necessary component of many of the everyday tools of humans.
Only a large number of highly-qualified engineers and scientists working in state-of-the-art facilities can design and produce one of these "artificial brains", runs trillions of processes per second, and contains more transistors than there are homes in Beijing or New York. It boasts hundreds of millions of nanometric components arranged in several interconnected layers. A complex architecture integrated in the microlandscape of a city with millions of buildings. Transistors and other components form a three-dimensional network reminiscent of the intricate neural connections of our brain. Many hours (even days) at the optical microscope are required to explore the "big," nanometric-sized city.
As a medium I use the digital photography with the help of a microscope.
