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. Professor Jill Walker Rettberg is the principal investigator of Machine Vision, which runs from 2018-2023. A five page project summary is available, and preliminary results.
The Machine Vision in Art, Games and Narratives database gathers information about 500 video games, artworks and narratives (movies, novels, etc) that represent or simulate machine vision in various ways. The dataset is available on DataverseNO, and is documented in a data paper published in May 2022 in the journal Data in Brief.
This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No 771800).
