Next Big Test for AI: Making Sense of the World - MIT Technology Review. A few years ago, a breakthrough in machine learning suddenly enabled computers to recognize objects shown in photographs with unprecedented—almost spooky—accuracy.

Next Big Test for AI: Making Sense of the World - MIT Technology Review

The question now is whether machines can make another leap, by learning to make sense of what’s actually going on in such images. A new image database, called Visual Genome, could push computers toward this goal, and help gauge the progress of computers attempting to better understand the real world. Teaching computers to parse visual scenes is fundamentally important for artificial intelligence. It might not only spawn more useful vision algorithms, but also help train computers how to communicate more effectively, because language is so intimately tied to representation of the physical world.

Visual Genome was developed by Fei-Fei Li, a professor who specializes in computer vision and who directs the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab, together with several colleagues. Spécialité Arts Plastiques. Finalité indifférenciée.

Smart art: Hack the Space at Tate Modern

From our email addresses and tweets to our phonecalls and the items we scan at the checkout, the ever-expanding amount of information about us and the world we live in is being collected by governments, corporations and advertisers. Yet, as 140 developers, coders, designers and artists set out to prove this weekend, data – be it big or small – can also be a creative resource. Launching on Friday evening and running for 24 hours, the first ever art hack at Tate Modern did not involve destroying the gallery's priceless collection, or illegally breaking through the firewalls of secret government databases. Instead, camped out overnight in the gallery's cavernous Turbine Hall, participants worked through the night on a single brief: "Take any form of data and transform it into a creative digital artwork. " On the surface, a downbeat toy. Le curating algorithmique.

Big Bang Data. Decode Exhibition Points Way to Data-Driven Art. The cryptic works on display at London’s Decode: Digital Design Sensations exhibition manipulate raw data as a kind of virtual pigment, finding form and fun amid the sensory overload that threatens to overwhelm the 21st-century hive mind.

Decode Exhibition Points Way to Data-Driven Art

Several exhibition pieces showcased at Victoria and Albert Museum depend on human presence to produce their full effect. A motion-detecting eyeball, for examples, blinks each time a visitor blinks. In another piece, a video screen enables visitors to “paint” smears of color through the power of their gyrations. Other installations, on display through April 11, strip-mine data streams from Twitter, translate a day’s worth of flight routes into animated abstract art and hurl text-message fragments onto dozens of tiny display screens. “Decode is about demystifying the black art or magic of digital while showing that this work can be poetic, emotional and poignant,” show co-curator Shane R.J.

When envisaging a typical data visualiser at work, you’d probably conjure up images of a person slaving over rows of numbers and wrangling spreadsheets.

But Denver-born and London-based data designer Stefanie Posavec is of a different breed. Rather than simply turning a set of numbers into an information graphic, she finds data in things we wouldn’t normally associate with this type of information. She calls this ‘hidden data’, and it could be found in something as unexpected as a novel or a song lyric. Take her Literary Organism series she completed as part of her MA at Central Saint Martins. Armed with a set of highlighters and a ballpoint pen, she set about colour coding, reconstructing and presenting Kerouac’s seminal On the Road in an entirely new way. Manual data design from Stefanie Posavec. Designer Stefanie Posavec talks about her process of data collection, analysis, and design.

There’s a lot of advantages to knowing how to program, but there can also be value in meticulous manual discovery if you’re willing to put in that extra time. Of course, it’s still all about the data: So what inspires this level of analysis? DI BARTOLO. Bibliothèques et Open data : retour d’expérience de la Bibliothèque départementale des Côtes d’Armor.

Fabien Giraud & Raphaël Siboni.

– Press release for The Unmanned exhibition at Casino Luxembourg, January 2014 – “The first film shot did not occur with workers leaving a Lyon factory on 28 March 1895, but six months later, when at the end of another work day, the female workers walk once again in front of their employers’ camera, squeezing into the frame and speeding up their steps to adapt to the reel’s running time.

It’s the invention of a new physics, operating by the pressure of time spans on the body, by the condensation of space within the frames. Cinema is thus not simply the invention of a rhythmic drive mechanism for film to render the world’s movement, but the act of producing new bodies and new rhythms. Cinema has nothing to do with representation.

It is a point of morphological inflection. Fabien Giraud and Raphaël Siboni’s recent work is part of the historical parenthesis that separates these two factory exits. Predictive Art Bot □ Ordis et mémoires fantômes. S’il ne se passe pas une semaine sans qu’un magazine titre sur le pouvoir des algorithmes dans notre quotidien, pointant notre dépendance aux machines et notre crédulité face à leur capacité à nous mener par le bout du nez, il existe aussi d’autres façons de les regarder - avec un peu de poésie. Haunted by Algorithms. IoT Art - Real Time Networked Art Installations. 1) eCLOUD Project: Image: spencer lowell and www.ecloudproject.com Installed in the San Jose International Airport eCLOUD is a permanent art work by Aaron Koblin, Nik Hafermaas and Dan Goods.

It is constructed from polycarbonate tiles that fade in between transparent and opaque states and are controlled by real time weather from NOAA from locations around the world. This data is used to create a simulation representing weather from any of the international locations by turning the individual tiles on and off in a certain pattern. The simulation is visualized within the cloud sculpture as well as on a dynamic display placed at eye level in the terminal.

Everyday, a massive amount of new visual, textual, and transactional data is added to this vast archive.

How do we decide what bits of contemporary digital culture to preserve, study and curate given that its universe is constantly expanding? The parallel questions of selection, archiving and curating are important to address with regards to all recent media art forms - from early video, computer and telematic art to later networked, web-based, software, and data art. Interactive Globe: Small Arms Imports & Exports. Pitch Interactive, Inc. - A Data Visualization Studio. Software Studies Initiative: new book "Data Drift: Archiving Media and Data Art in the 21st Century" (editors: Rasa Smite, Raitis Smits, Lev Manovich) Data visualization design and the art of depicting reality. As part of an ongoing exhibition series with the Hyundai Card Design Library in Seoul, Korea, MoMA senior curator Paola Antonelli has organized three capsule exhibitions that highlight new frontiers in contemporary design and encourage international dialogue.

The second exhibition, Data Visualization, opened in Seoul in July 2015 and has recently concluded. We live in an age where we are bombarded by data gathered by sensors, arrayed by software, and dispersed via ever-proliferating networks. To visualize this data is to understand it. As the projects in this exhibition demonstrated, designers and scientists create diagrams, three-dimensional maps, and other graphics to help us make sense of the copious amount of information with which we are confronted daily. The digital age of data art. Maxence Grugier is a French journalist specializing in new media art and digital art for more than 15 years, writing for Digitalarti Media and other publications.

Many artists use as material for art the raw data produced by our societies, seeking innovative means of display or transforming it into a work of art. By blurring boundaries between art and information, data art dispels the myth of the romantic artist while offering a fundamental artistic act in a critical commentary of the digital age in which we live.

The R graph Gallery – Inspiration and Help concerning R graphics. FlowingData. Best Data Visualization Projects of 2016. Visualization continues its merging into the everyday — less standalone and more of a medium that blends with words. I think this is partially because of a concentration on mobile. There’s simply less visual space on a phone than there is a giant computer screen, so the visualization is stripped or split up into smaller pieces that are more easily digested while scrolling. Whereas last year seemed exploratory and long explainer-ish, this year was nimble and quickfire. Or maybe this year’s election season is still fresh in my mind. I can’t be sure.
