Computer Digitization Party
Thursday, 31 July
18.30-21:00, artist talk at 19:30

Computers can recognize faces, license plates, and even the way you walk. But until now, computers can’t recognize themselves or each other. Artist-in-residence Jeff Thompson’s project “Mirror Test” feeds hundreds of photographs of computers into a machine vision algorithm in an attempt to train the computer to become self-aware.

But we need your computer! Bring a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone and join artist-in-residence Jeff Thompson for a computer digitization party. We’ll have drinks, food, and a custom-made computer-themed soundtrack while Thompson digitizes your computer to add to the project. Don’t have a computer you can bring? Join us anyway for a conversation about computer vision, artificial social intelligence, and soft machines.
