Imaging Mind #1: Out of the Box

Introduction

In short, our relationship with the camera, the lens is evolving. The static stance of capturing a moment in a photograph is still there, but this is rapidly changing. Imaging is getting ubiquitous and pervasive. Pulling photographs after the moment from a vast amount of computer captured images is not far off in the future. Artificial Intelligence will help us select the best pictures. Taking pictures has also been augmented.

This artificial way of seeing things is becoming our ‘third eye’. Just like our own eyes view and build an image and its context through our minds, so too does this ‘third eye’ create extra context and builds a augmented view through an external mind powered by an intelligent grid of sensors and data.

‘Open Your Imaging Mind’


For this we’re starting a new community focused on aspects of visual science and culture. We’ve set up ImagingMind.com; here we try to chronicle everything we discover on the road to intelligent imaging. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter too.
      

Events

We’re traveling the world to meet people that like to engage with us and ImagingMind to further explore and amend the narrative.

This Meetup

For this first meetup we would like to get to know each other a little better and find out what you relationship to imaging is and what you hope to get out this group.  

We would like to share our first rough ideas with you in our presentation. Our aim with this project is to have an interactive ongoing dialogue with our audience, and everyone who wants to participate is very much encouraged to do so. Think about what you want to bring to the meeting.

Hands-on

Last but not least, we will also let you see and experiment with some of the coolest new imaging gadgets. We will bring some cool gear (at least that's what we think!) to this meetup: the Narrative Clip (formerly known as Memoto), the OMG Autographer (contains 5 sensors) the Ricoh Theta 360º spherical camera and the Parrot AR Drone 2.

Some drinks and snacks will be provided by us. Please let us know if you are coming and if you will bring guests. 

Hope to see you next thursday.

p.s. unfortunately, due to some unforeseen circumstances we had to change the location from Amsterdam to Rotterdam last-minute. We prefer changing the location over cancelling the  meeting. Our apologies if you can't make it.

    Thanks everyone for attending. It is a great feeling that we are out there now in the world. I would like to thank everyone who gave feedback, this was very helpful and will help us refine our pitch and concept. We are looking forward to working with you and would like to ask you what kind of role you want to play in the project. Blog post will follow soon for the people that couldn't make it to the event.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
