As part of Adversarial Acoustics Unit Test (Martin Disley) will screen their new short film, investigating the relationship between vocal forensics and machine learning through a mix of critical and speculative aesthetic practice. Whilst the rise of machine learning models has led to an increased awareness of the ways in which sociocultural biases are often embedded into their construction, this session explores how an investigative practice can reveal points of fragility in these system in order to develop new methods for resisting their application.
Murad Khan is a course leader and senior lecturer at UAL’s Creative Computing Institute. His research explores the relationship between pathology, perception and prediction across cognitive neuroscience and computer science, outlining a philosophy of noise and uncertainty in the development of predictive systems.
The collaborative research studio, Unit Test, explores the place of investigative methods in counter data-science practices.
