Systems of classifications are entirely arbitrary, as much as the AI of Animal Classifier, project by Seoul based artistic duo Shinseungback Kimyonghun (engineer Shin Seung Back and artist Kim Yong Hun), instructed to proceed with a classification of animals that is unmistakably paradoxical (by including categories such as sirens, stray dogs, fabulous). «Most of the current AI systems are basically classifiers, and they learn and work based on the classifications provided by humans, thus inevitably imperfect».
