Pedro Victor Brandão is a Brazilian multimedia artist. He develops series of works in photography, painting, video, and social experimentation that confront artistic traditions in assessments of the present and future of capitalism through research in economics, the right to the city, cybernetics and the current manipulative nature of the technical image. In 2021 he created the Acerola Fund, dedicated to acquisition of non-fungible tokens created by artists in the global south. The first edition of Decentralized Autonomous Acerola is one of the capitalization strategies of the fund, and it was recently distributed for free as an indirect coordination experiment.
Miles currently leads the AI team at PapaReo.nz, an Iwi led project building speech and language understanding and synthesis for indigenous languages, including te reo Māori. He was the founding CTO at recently acquired financial research company CreditSights, and in 2019, of the Wellington/Chinese AI startup Chatterize. He is likely to be giving early previews of his work with the Cashless Society – http://cashless.social. The Cashless Society is a decentralized autonomous collective building new forms of resilient, open source, mutual credit based on a core of peer to peer acknowledgements and reciprocity graphs.
