Web students in room 124 at Sydneshaugen skole
I enjoy seminars. I like being able to talk with the students rather than to them, I like learning to know them as individuals and I like seeing them hunkering down together and getting stuff done. I really enjoy the discussions we get going as well.

Here’s “Seminar 1” in HUIN105, the course on web design and interpretation I’m teaching this spring. There are lots of students, because the course is open, which means we have a very lively group and unfortunately not quite as much space as would be ideal. This is half of the class: other half of the class will be in seminar 2 tomorrow, doing the same stuff as these students did today, and they’re also split into four tutorials. Oh, and then there are plenary lectures for everyone, once a week. The first one had a few technical problems, but good points as well 😉

    Oh, I see! I thought I’d edited, but in fact I’d added. Thanks, I’ll delete the other one.

    I’m just curious (nosy, so to say).

    What’s your course about?
    “Webdesign & interpretation” is quite a broad concept.

    Hm, I found the course-blog, but still, my knowledge of Norwegian isn’t what it should be… (hm)

    They look different from US students?

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.  De Seta, Gabriele, and Anya Shchetvina. “Imagining Machine […]

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
