Patents and Face Detection
With Jeremy Bailey, Zach Blas and Bogomir Doringer

We welcome three interesting speakers on net-skepticism. Jeremy Bailey does performative research into the patents big companies like Apple and Google have on bodily gestures (swiping, looking up behind a pair of Google Glasses). Zach Blas researches facial recognition software and designs masks that hide you from it. Faceless-curator Bogomir Doringer will share his fascination for faceless images, which stems from politics, eroticism and power.
