Memo Akten – Learning to see – Turkey/United States

The work is an interactive installation in which several neural networks analyze a live camera pointing at a table covered with everyday objects. Through a very tactile and practical experience, the public can manipulate the objects on the table with their hands and see the corresponding scenario appearing on the screen, in real time, reinterpreted by the neural networks.
