Adam Harvey is an American artist and researcher currently based in Berlin. He is a graduate of the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University and previously studied engineering and photojournalism at Pennsylvania State University.

Harvey's previous work includes CV Dazzle (camouflage from face detection) and the Anti-Drone Burqa (camouflage from thermal cameras). His work has been exhibited at the Istanbul Design Biennale, Seoul Mediacity Biennale, German Spy Museum, V&A Museum and published with the New York Times. He is the recipient of 2 grants for developing computer vision software for human rights researchers and currently is creating a large-scale synthetic dataset for training computer vision algorithms on objects in conflict zones.

Alongside personal projects, he frequently works as a developer for other artists. Recent projects include developing a custom computer vision toolkit for the artist Trevor Paglen, a facial recognition system for Ai Weiwei, neural networks for Constant Dullaart, and a computer vision fooling scarf for Hyphen Lab's NSAF project.

MegaPixels: Face Recognition Datasets

Adam will explore two current research projects: and Topics will include the information supply chains of facial recognition datasets, 3D-modeling synthetic datasets for conflict zones, and our forensic future.
