Caio Vita – Imprecisely Human
Willem de Kooning Academy | Graphic Design

From facial recognition and emotion detection to predictive vision. Today’s computer vision technologies are able not only to process and analyse visual data, but are also capable of generating realistic copies of its subjects’ looks and movements.

These algorithms are trained with references from datasets that are often incomplete or contain disproportional representations of a given subject. Imprecisely Human is an investigation into computer vision technologies that are currently being developed. It takes a closer look at systems used to identify, analyse and process visual data. Subsequently, the tools designed to create a digital representation of the human body are used to trick the algorithm, leading to quite unexpected results
