This panel presents a digital art archives investigation highlighting the use of intelligent systems applications in conservation, retrieval, indexing or access forms related to the artistic object manipulation. The main goal of the discussion is to define parameters for non linear systems on the new media art information treatment. The principles for an intelligent machine and friendly interface to archives ambiance is still a theory. However, the application of this concept on current platforms is a healthy mechanism of transition from linear and semantic structures to a symbolic, non linear and fuzzy logic system. Machines do not have the cognitive development of humans. They do not develop consciousness or intentionality predicates yet. Nowadays, the intelligent machine applications aren’t separated from human acts. These non linear systems and relations work as a fractal complement for research and knowledge. Memory is considered not only by the previous content indexed on the archive, but also by the interlocutor’s actions and perceptions. To discuss museology, database systems, data visualization, artistic process and other themes by the lens of the memory, this panel focuses on documentation tools and concepts to understand the artificial intelligence applicability in electronic and digital art conservation. The panel proponent FILE electronic language international festival is a nonprofit cultural organization that promotes a reflection on the main issues in the contemporary electronic-digital global context, always keeping a transdisciplinary vision in the cultural manifestations complexity of our time. The FILE initiative of documentation occurs since its first edition, in 2000. Alternative tactics are used to keep the archive updated with different platforms to cover all its contents. Mechanisms of transition to intelligent systems arise as a solution to FILE Archive documentation and access. Creating opportunities for discussions in this area and share with other initiatives such as ISEA event will contribute to enlarge the digital conservation knowledge.
