Project:

Fostering Literacy in the Era of AI: Exploring Ideological Formation and Micro-Political Shifts


This project aims to examine the ways in which artificial intelligence is shaping ideology in the current media environment, reflecting on technological hegemony. It seeks to investigate how AI is forming ideologies and explore the political possibilities of bringing about changes within user organizations on a micro-political level. The evolution of media has transitioned from a linear print era to a society centered around images. The biophysical existence of humans, reduced to information, has become manageable and manipulable capital on platforms. Humans have transcended their physical bodies, transforming into immaterial data functioning as code that can contract or expand according to visual arrangements. Algorithms regulate user perceptions through biased image array structures, and AI synthesis technology assumes a political direction aiming to eliminate individuality unique to humans, creating meaning by removing singularity. Additionally, generative AI models standardize human language and universalize knowledge, imparting education to users based on the purposes and meanings demanded by society. However, it operates as a tool that conceals truth in the name of rationality, distorts events, and justifies the terrain of political power. AI technology not only collects and provides individual information but also captures and reshapes humans, territorializing them through control with geographically transformative nature. Ultimately, the newly generated territory, by stripping human dignity, produces hatred through the process of organizing power. This study aims to discuss, in a geopolitical dimension, the organization of human thought and environment by current synthetic technology and language models. By investigating memes propagated by the right-wing leading the ideologicalization of Korean youth using technology, it will explore dehumanizing methods and reflections on transformed bodies in the dimensions of flesh and blood, examining signs of fascism. Moreover, it intends to explore the possibilities of political imbalance by examining cases where generative AI models, such as ChatGPT, standardize language, conflict regions, and shape terrains through the concept of language hygiene.
