There are smart cameras all around us in public space. From the police, the city government, big and small companies, and from residents. We may have become used to them by now, and feel safe because of them, but
these cameras analyse us with artificial intelligence. And they store these analyses somewhere with a specific purpose. ‘(Re)think the role of smart sensors in the digital age’ questions this development. The video installation explores the space between what smart cameras currently do and what they might do in the near future. By doing so we encourage ongoing conversations. How do we want smart surveillance to evolve?
Come by at the VU campus in the NU building on the first floor to immerse yourself in the installation, talk about it with fellow students and university staff, and let your voice be heard!
The work is created by Marjoleine van der Meij (Athena Institute) and Marco Schürmann (MarcoschMedia), inspired by the CATALYST project (NWO:CISC.CC.007) and funded by the VU Network Institute. The CATALYST project was a collaborative project of AMS, TUDelft, VU and NEMO Kennislink.
