Machine Visions is a grad student-run event series focused on developing cross-department connections around topics related to computer vision at MIT. We are interested in workshopping questions and gathering resources around collaboration between the general public, artists/humanists, research scientists, and other technologists.
The event series starts with a workshare/workshop on March 19, 6:00 to 8:30 pm in building E15, dinner provided. We want to start building a resource repo for a Collaboration Starter Kit around machine vision projects. The aim is to build a strong base of questions, resources, and conversation starters towards an on-site installation at the Media in Transition conference in May. Our first workshare/workshop will provide an opportunity to meet and collaborate with students and affiliates from departments across campus, including Comparative Media Studies, Art Culture and Technology, and the Media Lab.
The exact topic will be flexible depending on interest, but we are coming to the table with an emphasis on artistic applications, environmental impact, ethics, surveillance, and accessibility. We aim for participants to walk away with ideas about how to collaborate with others outside their discipline to explore these topics in their own work.
If you have related projects/ideas you would be willing to discuss/workshop at any of these events, are interested in collaborating on a computer vision installation, or are generally interested in conversation around these topics—and can make it to the first meeting—please let us know.
