Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AIML) are rapidly changing nearly every aspect of post-modern life; but, do we really understand it? Quantum Computing will only accelerate the adoption of AIML as the new algorithm(s) for universal computability emerge. Explainable AI (XAI) is a burgeoning field of research with the goal of opening the AIML black box and explaining how it works. From the technical standpoint, this is typically calculating and demonstrating input-to-output connections with the hope of generating more trust in AIML. The intent of this animation is to create and reveal the inner workings of an AIML from a visual arts standpoint – visual arts XAI.
