Collaborations

Observed(o) project will start publicly in a few days. As you have seen in previous posts these are the last moments for planing and preparing all materials and actions. It’s also the moment all collaborations are being closed. These are from a very wide spectrum, from individuals to companies, from art centers to foundations, without all the help received project could not even begin.

Main collaborators are : Fundació Ferreruela SanFeliu, Centre d’Art La Panera, Museu Morera, Institut d’Estudis Ilerdencs, Universitat de Lleida, Diari Segre and Trevol.tv. And all the individuals helping with the project and that will be hanging project banners in their private homes or helping with any of the actions. To all of them, Thank You.

As project actions are done and documented all of them will be included in this project site, updating or adding them to the  actions section. All collaborations will also be mentioned in the specific action where they have been involved.

“Can I say that we will never use facial recognition technology for any other purposes? Absolutely not.”

Interesting article by Alexel Oreskovic for NBCNews abut facial recognition technology and how Facebook plans to use it.

“The technology currently automatically identifies faces in newly uploaded photos by comparing them only to previous snapshots in which users were tagged. “

“Facebook is considering incorporating most of its 1 billion-plus members’ profile photos into its growing facial recognition database, expanding the scope of the social network’s controversial technology.”
