How Humans and Machines See the World

Bush House, Strand Campus, London

6 Dec image-advert-PERCEPTION-KCL

Can machines see? What does it mean for humans to endow machines with the capacity for seeing? But do we actually understand how humans see the world? And is there even a ‘we’ that does the seeing?

Join us for an event discussing the cultural and technical interlacing between human perception and machine vision. (Please note this is an in-person event only, taking place in central London.)


  • Screening by art collective Taller Estampa (Spain)
  • Paula Gortázar (Westminster)
  • Daniel Chávez Heras (King’s)
  • Leonardo Impett (Cambridge)
  • Joanna Zylinska (King’s)

The event will include a launch of Joanna Zylinska’s book, The Perception Machine: Our Photographic Future between the Eye and AI (MIT Press). It will be followed by a drinks reception.
