Computer vision recognition systems are highly robust — in certain ways. The data-sets used to prime machine vision make certain recognition systems sensitive to particular information. While on the one hand, this makes it a strong search tool, on the other hand such robustness often makes computer recognition overly sensitive to the ‘wrong information’ — or produces a type of cyber-synesthesia.
Machine recognition algorithms mistake cupcakes for female nipples. They flag and ban nipple cakes from Instagram. At the same time, 3-D scanned bodies and highly detailed 3-D models of the female anatomy are publicly available for sale, for high def animation, cyber-porn, games, etc. Photography and 3D modelling are blurred into a contradiction. Via machine learning, female body parts are both 3D high def simulation and simultanesouly low-fi nipple cupcakes to ban.
