The Algorithmic Security Politics of Computer Vision

Project description

Security Vision: the security politics of computer vision

Smart CCTV, social media video content moderation, military drone footage: threats are not being detected by humans, but by computer algorithms trained to understand images. Yet how do these technologies of computer vision, which promise to replace humans in the understanding of images, work in practice in the field of security? What are their ethical and political implications? There is currently a gap in our knowledge of how these technologies impact the governmental and private sectors, their decision-making and the fundamental rights of those targeted. The EU-funded SECURITY VISION project aims to address these challenges through an innovative framework that investigates the theoretical, empirical and political implications of the development of computer vision in the field of security.
