Trevor Paglen in Being Human

Get ready for the Uncanny Valley: Being Human in the Age of AI, which is the first major exhibition in the US to explore the relationship between humans and intelligent machines through an artistic lens. Organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, with the deYoung in San Francisco as its sole venue, Uncanny Valley: Being Human in the Age of AI will be on view from February 22 to October 25, 2020 and will feature our own alum Trevor Paglen!

From the description:

A series of video works addresses and resists the perpetuation of societal bias and discrimination within AI. Trevor Paglen’s groundbreaking work with ImageNet, the world’s largest visual data training set, exposes the myth of objectivity within machine learning. From Apple to Anomaly assembles thousands of images according to their categorization, a task that is outsourced to Mechanical Turks, thus revealing both AI’s reliance on human labor and the problem of bias built into the process.

If you're interested in hearing more about the exhibition, you should join us for Art & AI with Christiane Paul and Claudia Schmuckli on April 16th!
