I've been invited to be part of a two-day workshop with a extremely stimulating group of researchers, writers and practitioners on Machine Vision, organised by Machine Vision ERC, a project lead by Jill Walker Rettberg from the University of Bergen. Machine Vision in Everyday Life: Playful Interactions with Visual Technologies in Digital Art, Games, Narratives and Social Media is a five year, ERC-funded project that explores how new algorithmic images are affecting us as a society and as individuals.

From the blog of the research project: "During the first workshop, the participants were invited to brainstorm on the future of machine vision and wrote fictionals blurbs of and bibliographies for the books that will need to have been written for us to understand this technological shift. The next step, we decided, is a book project - with twenty authors."
