Photography artist Trevor Paglen reveals the underbelly of artificial intelligence: From ‘Apple’ to ‘Anomaly’ is on view at London’s Barbican Art Gallery until February 16, 2020.
The Barbican Art Gallery currently presents a specially commissioned project by multimedia artist Trevor Paglen. From ‘Apple’ to ‘Anomaly’ investigate the algorithms that enable AI networks to perceive and evaluate human faces.
Paglen’s explorations are centred on ‘training sets’ – vast collections of image, sound and video libraries that are used to teach computers to recognise objects and faces, as well as facial expressions, eye movements, gestures, actions and voice commands. He takes a critical look at these recognition mechanisms, and highlights the potential for bias and stereotyping within autonomous AI systems.
