Identity 2.0

moving image / machine learning / 2021

The materiality of the digital image has a liquid nature in that it exist as a binary code and therefore may be easily deconstructed, re-constructed and re-imagined.
Social media platforms are capable of analysing every single image that appears on their servers. By using facial recognition algorithms, which are trained to match a human face, they can easily verify a user.
Identity 2.0 investigates the methods by which social media platforms are using facial recognition systems to identify human faces in digital images, and the extend of accuracy to which those algorithms are capable of performing.
