Directed by DALab, researchers created “Hybrid Bodies” as workshop which set out to explore ways in which digital technologies manifest themselves in relation to bodies and their economic or bio-economic sustainability in an attempt to speculate on potential applications and transgressions.
Every person’s body is unique to them. At the moment there are deep learning algorithms that can identify a person through their body from video surveillance footage. The algorithms extract a person’s ‘body signature’ from the videos. The body signature is akin to a handwriting signature in the way it can be pinned to a particular person, which creates a new way of exploring implications of the body as a conduit of data.
