Sayings about the weather represent the cultural heritage of a changing landscape and time, as well as exemplifying the search for models over generations to understand natural phenomena and therefore predict the future. Predictions based on probability theories, but also on imaginative capacity. ZENZ(A)I is a neural network that processes information from the outside world and learns from it. Artificial intelligence creates sayings about the weather from existing weather data and sayings, thereby confronting principles such as failure, wandering and open, unguided discovery. The project deals with issues related to the configuration and functioning of the common sense and senses of artificial intelligence involved in perceiving and understanding reality.
