The ERC project Machine Vision will co-host a workshop at UCSB in Santa Barbara, California.

Camera-equipped drones are an example of the many ways machine vision is seeping into our everyday lives.

This workshop is hosted in collaboration with the Digital Arts & Humanities Commons (DAHC) at the University of Santa Barbara, and will pull together scholars from UiB and USA to discuss the cultural effects of everyday machine vision.

The workshop is still in the early stages of planning, but confirmed participants include Machine Vision advisory board members Kelly Gates of UCSD, author of Our Biometric Future: Facial Recognition Technology and the Culture of Surveillance, and Kishonna Gray of UIC, author of Race, Gender, & Deviance in Xbox Live

Jeremy Douglass (UCSB) is the local host, working with Jill Walker Rettberg (UiB) to coordinate the workshop.
