Week 93-97

Mar 3, 2018

I've begun my second semester at The New School, hence the lack of weekly notes. I am continuing a class on ‘designed realities’ with Dunne & Raby, a Machine Learning intro in Parsons' Data Vis program, and a studio with artist Ernesto Klar. I am still focussing on machine learning and computer vision tech, both as subject of investigation and medium for making.
To be able to deep-dive into this, I initiated a small machine learning lab (aka. currently a computer in a tiny, windowless room) at Parsons that is now finally up and running.

In other news, the talk I gave about Computed Curation at the Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology 16th Biennial Symposium is online here (at 00:07:45). Note to self: Try to smile more, sound more excited.

MIT SENSEable City Lab launched City Scanner, my main project at the lab. I had the pleasure to work with incredibly smart people and learned so much about research, close collaboration with scientists, thermal cameras, and garbage trucks.
