Enhanced Family Tree: Evolving Research and Expression Overview
SIGGRAPH 2020 Art Papers – ACM SIGGRAPH

 

Enhanced Family Tree reimagines the possibilities of family trees with an evolving series of exhibits. The authors’ works combine genealogical data, visualization, 3D technologies and interactivity to explore and display ancient genealogical relationships. Their new approach may reveal questionable relationships in genealogical records. Moreover, the authors’ use of an organic metaphor of a “tree” can be further extended to increase public understanding and engagement. The audience’s questions arising from this project show increased curiosity and nuanced questioning about their own family origins and development.

Award : Prix ARS Electronica 2021 / Honorary Mentions

Category : AI & Life Art

Abstract :

藝術家Paolo Cirio 在法國抗議期間拍攝的照片中收集了 1,000 張警察的公開圖像,並使用人臉識別軟體對其進行了處理。

Paolo Cirio 創建了一個在線平台,其中包含一個 4,000 張警察面孔的數據庫,用物聯網技術網羅大量資訊,並依姓名獲取他們的身份證明。此外,Cirio 將警務人員的頭像輸出為街頭藝術海報,並將它們張貼在整個巴黎市區,以便在公共場所曝光。這個作品通過質疑權力的不對稱性,批判人臉識別和人工智慧的潛在用途和誤用。

此類技術缺乏隱私權法規,藝術家透過行動反對敦促使用它的政府當局。這一挑釁引發了法國內政部長和警察工會的反應,儘管法國公民和國際媒體都在慶賀這件藝術品,但他們還是對藝術品進行了壓制。

最初,Paolo Cirio 發起了一項運動,旨在倡議歐洲禁止人臉識別技術的濫用。2021 年的 A Ban on Facial Recognition in EU 活動中,Paolo Cirio 向歐洲各機構發送了一個包裹,其中包含一份法律投訴和他的研究以及擁有超過 50,000 個聲援者署名的請願書。

『歐盟執行委員會』最終通過承認有必要在法律上限制人工智慧的使用來回應Paolo Cirio 的請願訴求。

Topic: How to Draw the Coronavirus

Link:  PPT  &  Article

Theme: Covid-19, Art and Technology

Author: Rebekah Frumkin

Creators Mentioned: CDC illustrators Alissa Eckert and Dan Higgins, iSO-FORM’s Nick Klein and Jamie Vitzthum, Melanie Connolly, Jane Whitney, Jonathan Corum, David Goodsell.

Abstract: The disease that has put the entire world on pause is easily communicable, capable of stowing silently away in certain hosts and killing others, and, to the human eye, entirely invisible. In media parlance it’s become our “invisible enemy”: a nightmarish, oneiric force that can’t be seen, heard, or touched. But with the use of modeling software, scientists and illustrators have begun to visualize coronavirus, turning it into something that can be seen, understood, and, hopefully, eventually vanquished by science. Many of us imagine the virus as a sphere radiating red spikes—but why? Certain elements of these visualizations are based on the way coronavirus appears under a microscope, and others are choices that were made, an exercise of artistic license.

Topic: AI DJ — A dialog between human and AI through music  ppt

Author: Nao Tokui et al.

Abstract: “AI DJ Project” is a live performance featuring an Artificial Intelligence (AI) DJ playing alongside a human DJ. Utilizing various deep neural networks, the software(AI DJ) selects vinyl records and mixes songs. Playing alternately, each DJ selects one song at a time, embodying a dialogue between the human and AI through music. DJ-ing “Back to Back” serves as a critical investigation into the unique relationship between humans and machines.

In the performance, AI is not a replacement for the human DJ. Instead, it is a partner that can think and play alongside its human counterpart, bringing forth a broader perspective of our relationship to contemporary TechArt.

Art Title  : Narcissus

Exhibition : SIGGRAPH Asia 2020: Untitled & Untied

Artist  :  Seol Lee

PPT File :http://www.fbilab.org/nthu/aet/seminar/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/書報討論210518_Kai.pdf

– 作品論述 (Art Statement)

Summary

    Sensing the brainwave of an appreciator, creates an interaction that the higher concentration on the reflection on the surface of water, the more blurred observation. That experience reflects the reverse of the Narcissus story and expresses that mirrored image of the participant could not exist as complete subject.

Abstract

    Narcissus was a hunter in Greek mythology who fell in love with his own reflection in the water. Narcissus is the origin of the term narcissism. This artwork , as its name suggests, is based on the myth of Narcissus.

A narcissistic ego that conceals the weakness of the individual, focuses energy only on itself. Everyone has narcissism even if a little. Excessive narcissism causes lots of problems from isolation because fascinating by the perfection of oneself makes relationship with the others closed.

Sophia Brueckner: Captured by an Algorithm

  • Captured by an Algorithm is a commemorative plate series that looks at romance novels through the lens of Amazon Kindle’s Popular Highlight algorithm. A passage in a Kindle e-book becomes a Popular Highlight after a certain numb
  • er of people independently highlight the same passage.
  • Popular Highlights are displayed as underlined along with the total number of highlighters. The highlights in romances are not the racy, salacious quotes that one might expect. Instead, they reveal the intense feelings of loneliness, grief, and discontent that are felt by the readers. With all the social technologies available today, it is astonishing to see that so many people feel so lonely. Popular Highlights change based on readers’ interactions with the books and Amazon’s adjustments to the algorithm. These poignant examples of shared vulnerability are preserved on porcelain commemorative plates. Photoshop’s Photomerge algorithm, intended to stitch together photos into panoramas, is instead applied to scans of romance novel covers. Because the covers are so similar, the algorithm finds areas that it believes should overlap producing dreamy, hybrid landscapes. Each plate features one of these landscapes as well as a Popular Highlight from a romance novel.
  • The nature of these highlights suggests they are not serving as bookmarks for readers to return to later. They are not the type of quotes people share on Goodreads to look smart or well read. When a reader highlights one of these Popular Highlights, it is as if they are saying “I understand” or “me too!” They can take comfort in knowing that they are one of many feeling the same way. Over seventy thousand individual acts of highlighting were used to determine the content for this work. This project draws attention to an existing example of collective social support to change society’s vision for the future of social technologies.科技藝術簡報 Deep Dream-20210518

Facebook-a facial recognition book that traces your identity

作品資料出處:http://hellohandson.com/work/facebook/

作品論述:

The Premise
With the proliferation of social networks and data tracking, the wisdom of computer algorithms and surveillance mobs has been elevated over the locked-in immortality of individuals. Tracking your data with face recognition, this interactive medium invites you to become a real-time protagonist of the story.

The Idea
As you browse through the interactive book for the first time, the camera uses facial recognition to pair your profile with data tracked through search engines. The book draws a back-end algorithm and fills in the blank of the narrative with your name, age, gender, location and birth date. As the story unfolds with each turn of a page, you realize that this is a story about you.

Enabling Technology
Converting Rekognition API data on Processing, two sketches had to be run to first trace the user’s face profile, followed by projecting their data into the narrative plot. Client to Server communication was used on the two processing sketches.

The Final Product
The first web camera tracks the user flipping the book by using nyar4psg markers. The second web camera traces their face and with facial recognition, pulls their data pre-stored and projects it into the book – injecting the user into the narrative plot.

原文摘要:

Technological innovations reach deeply into our daily lives and an emerging trend supports the use of commercial smart wearable devices to manage health. In the era of remote, decentralized and increasingly personalized patient care, catalysed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the cardiovascular community must familiarize itself with the wearable technologies on the market and their wide range of clinical applications. In this Review, we highlight the basic engineering principles of common wearable sensors and where they can be error-prone. We also examine the role of these devices in the remote screening and diagnosis of common cardiovascular diseases, such as arrhythmias, and in the management of patients with established cardiovascular conditions, for example, heart failure. To date, challenges such as device accuracy, clinical validity, a lack of standardized regulatory policies and concerns for patient privacy are still hindering the widespread adoption of smart wearable technologies in clinical practice. We present several recommendations to navigate these challenges and propose a simple and practical ‘ABCD’ guide for clinicians, personalized to their specific practice needs, to accelerate the integration of these devices into the clinical workflow for optimal patient care.

中文摘要:

技術創新深入到我們的日常生活和新興趨勢,支持使用商業智慧穿戴設備來管理健康。在COVID-19大流行的催化下,在遠端、分散和日益個性化的患者護理時代,心血管病患者必須開始熟悉市場上的可穿戴技術及其廣泛的臨床應用。在這篇評論中,我們重點介紹了現行可穿戴傳感器的基本工程原理以及其容易出錯的地方。還檢查了這些設備在遠端篩檢和診斷常見的心血管疾病(如心律不整)以及在已知的心血管疾病(例如心力衰竭)患者的管理上發揮作用。迄今為止,諸如設備準確性、臨床有效性、缺乏標準化的監管政策,以及對患者隱私的擔憂等挑戰,至今仍然阻礙了智慧穿戴技術在臨床實物上的廣泛採用。此篇提出了一些應對這些挑戰的建議,並為臨床醫生提供了一個簡單實用的“ ABCD”指南,根據他們的特定實務需求進行個人化設置,以加速將這些設備整合到臨床實務工作流程中,來實現最佳的患者護理。
