"Your face is big data" by Egor Tsvetkov - Russian photographer matches random people with social network photos

"Your face is big data" by Egor Tsvetkov - Russian photographer matches random people with social network photos | Socialart | Scoop.it

Yegor Tsvetkov uses neural networks to show the dangers of digital access...

 

With the use of neural networks, a photographer from St. Petersburg has matched people he met on the subway with their social network profiles and compared their real look with how they present themselves on the internet.
 
For six weeks Yegor Tsvetkov, a young St. Petersburg photographer, has been snapping random people and then identifying them on Russia’s biggest social network VKontakte with the help of the FindFace app (based on algorithms of self-learning neural networks). ...

Henry Markram wants brain-like computing to map the brain

 

If neuroscientist Henry Markram had a dollar for every neuron he wants to map, he still wouldn't have enough money.

 

As it happens, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) researcher has a billion euros, or $1.38 billion, from the European Union to spend over the next ten years, but the normal means of determining a neuron's activity can cost $1 million and take a year. By the time he got through the 3000-odd pathways shown in the photograph of a pinhead-sized slice of brain behind him in a conference room last month, he'd be flat broke, decades older, and he'd still have to map countless more pinheads' worth of neurons to understand the brain. ...
