Robot Readable World

Several years ago, a movie was published regarding the way in which robots see the world.

Exactly how do robots see the world, and how do they gather meaning from our cities, media, streets, and from us?

This is a short film, an experiment in machine-vision footage. It uses found-footage from computer vision research to explore how machines are making sense of the world.

As robots begin to inhabit the world alongside us, how do they see and gather meaning from our streets, cities, media and from us? Machines have a tiny, fractional view of our environment, that sometimes echoes our own human vision and often doesn’t.
