For »PL’AI«, Špela Petrič has an artificial intelligence and cucumber plants interact with each other. The robot is programmed to capture images of the plant and predict how it will continue to grow. Based on its predictions, the robot lengthens or shortens its wires. The plants, in turn, influence the computer’s learning system through their growth by wrapping their tendrils around the robot’s wires in a way that cannot be predicted by the machine. Both of them learn from each other.
