Collaborative photo projects for people who like excuses to look differently at things:

  • Implementation
  • Ghani’s International Ticket Project. Ghani’s creating a design for a new interface for London’s automatic ticket machines and is asking for photos of such machines from around the world.
  • I remember a wonderfully organised site of road signs from around the world – I can’t find it, but there are heaps of others, and several probably accept submissions.

Any others?

Four visual registers for imaginaries of machine vision

I’m thrilled to announce another publication from our European Research Council (ERC)-funded research project on Machine Vision: Gabriele de Setaand Anya Shchetvina‘s paper analysing how Chinese AI companies visually present machine vision technologies. They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  […]
