Algorithmic agents in sound, image and video (Michael Murtaugh & Nicolas Malevé, Constant)
Title of film with blurry actor????
you learn about an image through its transformation * for contour detection: start with blurring edges not coherent lines, guess which fragments belong together to create a shape * face recognition Volterra Kernel Training mass of documents available -> allows statistical model of a face out of a lot of manual work done by humans, every detail of face (with different lightnings) is annotated --> working conditions/labour army -> training data needs also images where the face is hidden / no image exists in isolation
False positive images selected as containing a face, but don't (side note: see interesting iphoto bug here: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/163885/unnamed-faces-in-my-oven ) feedback loop: hiding for the algorithm same model can be used for other shapes
