Recognition in Turin

On Thursday, March 2nd at 6pm at GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Turin, Angelo Semeraro and Monica Lanaro, part of the team who created Recognition, will discuss about aesthetics, empathy and models in the era of Artificial Intelligence with Andrea Pinotti, professor of Aesthetics at the Università Statale di Milano and fellow of many international research institutions.

The occasion is the presentation for the first time in Italy of the results of Recognition, an artificial intelligence project created by Fabrica, winner of IK Prize 2016, a contest launched by Tate celebrating creative talent in the digital industry.

Over three months from 2 September to 27 November 2016, Recognition created an ever-expanding virtual gallery by searching through Tate’s archive and collection of British art online, comparing works with news images from Reuters based on visual and thematic similarities. A display at Tate Britain accompanied the online project offering visitors to the gallery the chance to compare the machine’s matches with their own and inviting them to help retrain the algorithm.
