Welcome to The AI Human-Training Center. Our mission is to remind you that when you are confronted with AI facial recognition technology you are not powerless! You are not without agency! This participatory performance invites you to familiarize yourself with the way AI algorithms see you. During this performance you will get to see a real time AI analysis of your face. You will also learn some tricks to transform your own visibility and manipulate the way these algorithms see you.

Performance duration: 15 minutes.
Instructions for participants:
  • The performance is taking place on ZOOM. You will be sent an invite prior to the event. Please join on time (Late comers will not be admitted).
  • Participants are asked to join the meeting with video and show their faces.
  • For an ideal experience - make sure your face is well lit, your background should be as solid as possible (sitting with a wall behind you is good).

Performances limited to 12 audience members. Click on desired date to sign up for event on Facebook, or sign up on Eventbrite here.
