In a way this is a project, which is very close to what we do at adversarial.io. Philipp Schmitt’s Declassifier uses a computer vision algorithm trained on COCO (Common Objects in Context), an image dataset appropriated from Flickr users by Microsoft in 2014.
Within Schmitts’ original photographs certain objects get identified. These regions get overlaid with images that show the same kind of objects, and belong to the COCO data set from which the COCO neural network originally was trained. “If a car is identified in one of the photographs, all the cars included in the dataset that trained the algorithm surface on top of it.” (The Photographers Gallery)
It takes a while to grasp what’s going on, since this project leans to the more artsy side. I loved to play around with it.
When you click on the images a certificate for the original contribution of photography is issued, identifying the original contributor (whose participation get’s lost within the dataset).
