Artificial intelligence has a growing presence in our daily lives, including through recommendation algorithms. But their lack of representation causes fear among users. Therefore, questioning the design of algorithms seems essential, particularly in the context of Explainable artificial intelligence.
The project Immersion suggests a visual exploration of the functioning of an algorithm, inside a music streaming platform.
During the musical expedition, users can visualize the mechanisms of the algorithm and are encouraged to take an active part in its operation by configuring it.
At the beginning, the polar landscape suggests an unexplored world. But depending on how users progress through discovery, icebergs appear and take different shapes. Then, users are free to explore the visible part and the submerged part of the algorithm.
