_can AI identify pictures better than humans?

With each passing day, computers are evolving from dumb and blind machines to smart and sight enabled ones. What happens when they make better sense of our environment than we can? They are quickly permeating our world, becoming new sorts of pets while introducing a new sort of sight of and into our own condition. That is perhaps what will give […]

_scan yourself into VR games and movies

Imagine attending your favorite band’s concert and watching from the location of your choice – front row, backstage, or directly from the stage itself. With volumetric 3D VR, you could walk around on stage and get a close up view of each musician as they play from any direction. Or, imagine a future where watching […]

_retinal recognition vs. artificial recognition

Alongside many related experiments, Recognition analyzes images from news reels to match them with historical artwork. Using a range of artificial intelligence technologies, it analyzes images through object, facial, composition and context  recognition. In doing so it aims to simulate how humans see images. This comparative viewing is intended to offer new ways to understand art as well as current […]

_on time slice imagery

Marker-Moore‘s riff on time-lapse photography compresses all of the takes into a single image he calls a a “time slice.” This creates a gradient of colors, distilling sunsets (and sunrises) of up to 60 minutes or more into into one epic vista. “I love using this technique to showcase the transitions in the day, like […]

_hand(s) of the artist

When considering the place of robotics in the creative process: what are the machine-human boundaries in interpretation, implementation and creative authorship? Artist-scientist Patrick Tresset is exploring a relationship with the artificial creativity that we may find in the drawing of his robotic hands. Indeed the eye-hand coordination and repetitive tasks of the portrait artist are to a large extent not unlike a […]

_dematerialization & re-embodiment

From mosaics to frescos to pixels and virtual 3D, we as humans continue to enhance the art of representation. We depict forms, textures and motions to then stage them through a process running from dematerialization and disembodiment to rematerialization and re-embodiment. Doing so, we virtually materialize goods as we once materialized gods and emperors. »CLIP This sort of representation, today […]

| Beyond Photoshop: inceptionism and dynamic image processing

“We train an artificial neural network by showing it millions of training examples and gradually adjusting the network parameters until it gives the classifications we want. The network typically consists of 10-30 stacked layers of artificial neurons. Each image is fed into the input layer, which then talks to the next layer, until eventually the […]

/mixing fingers, radar tech & sight into haptics

Project Soli combines finger gestures, radar technology and sight to rethink the potential of haptics. Approximately the size of a small computer chip, this technology can transform your hand into a virtual dial machine to control something as mundane as volume on a speaker, or into a virtual touchpad to a smartwatch or a smartphone […]

/Self-Powered Video Camera To Run Indefinitely In Bright Light

Perpetual Photography Machine: A 30 x 40 array of pixels acts as both an image collector and a photovoltaic power source. Computer scientists at  Columbia University have made a video camera that can power itself. The rudimentary camera can capture an image every second of a well-lit scene while converting light into electric power. The device is a step […]

/3D scanning

3D scanning analyses real-world objects or environments to collect data on their shapes and surfaces (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models that may then be restaged in specific digital environments open to virtual explorations. With ScanLAB and other companies, 3D scanning is now a service within reach of most budgets and offers a wide array of […]
