KIKK Festival Talk on Image Recognition and Poetry

One of our Data R&D Institute members, Lynn Cherny, gave an invited talk at the 2017 KIKK Festival of arts & technology in Namur, Belgium on 2 November.  The theme of the festival was “Invisible Narratives.”

Lynn’s talk used image recognition APIs (Google Vision and Amazon Rekognition) and object detection using the AI library tensorflow from Google to identify image contents and use the results to generate poetic text.  The result is a meditation on photography, machine learning training and language, and human emotion.  Her talk is written up on Medium: “COCO’s Memory Palace: A Strange Fantasia.”
