Computer Vision Research Opportunity
The very first two studies of computer facial recognition, conducted by Woody Bledsoe in the early 1960s, have not been made available to the public. Thanks to the efforts of two ITP researchers, copies of these reports were recently obtained by the department. An opportunity exists for an academic computer vision researcher to review this seminal work and coauthor a short brief (~two pages) to accompany its release. We are interested in contextualizing these primary documents within the history of CV development which followed, as well as making Bledsoe’s work accessible to researchers and artists working in the domains of computer vision, facial recognition, state secrets, surveillance and privacy.
