CONTINUUM

CONTINUUM exhibition intertwines personal stories, scientific knowledge and photographic portraits around the continuum of gender and sexualities.

The exhibition will be visible from November 18 to December 3 at EPFL in the RLC hall  

Created by University of Geneva in 2018, the exhibition invites to reflect around the notions of gender and sexualities without pigeonholing individuals into fixed categories or making them spokespersons, but rather telling singular stories.
During its stay at UNIL and EPFL, new “knowledge” panels were added to the original exhibition.

Commissioner of the exhibition : Ferdinando Miranda
Photographer : Neige Sanchez


In parallel to this exhibition 3 events are planned:

“How We’ve Taught Algorithms to See Identity” by Morgan Klaus Scheuerman, followed by a discussion 
(Zoom link)

Race and gender have long sociopolitical histories of classification in technical infrastructures-from the passport to social media. Facial analysis technologies are particularly pertinent to understanding how identity is operationalized in new technical systems. In this talk, Morgan Klaus Scheuerman will present the results of two works on how identity is conceptualized in computer vision. First, “How Computers See Gender,” an analysis of how gender is concretely conceptualized and encoded into commercial facial analysis and image labeling technologies available today. Second, “How We’ve Taught Algorithms to See Identity,” how race and gender are defined and annotated in image databases used for facial analysis. The synthesis of these works points towards a need for addressing the discursive construction of identity categories in computer vision, and technologies more broadly.
