Facial recognition and AI. Exhibition in New York
Facial recognition. It’s all around us – and yet we are often unaware of it, and its consequences are anything but transparent. The way that facial recognition impacts on our everyday lives when used in conjunction with artificial intelligence is also an important factor in design. From September 20, the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in New York will be presenting an installation and exhibition on this topic, curated by Ellen Lupton under the title Face Values. The exhibition examines the effects that current technologies have on the interplay between surveillance and artificial intelligence, and the social significance of this. Works by designers such as Luke DuBois and Zachary Liebermann will be presented in a digital environment designed by Matter Architecture Practice, supplemented by a «visual essay» by Jessica Helfand.
