How to see 300 million images? Exploring Large Cultural Data to Unlearn What We Know

An very urgent message from Jamie “best man on Facebook” Hall ’15

This Friday at 3PM in Russell House Lev Manovich, one of the shrewdest commentators and analysts of the digital age and an innovative designer of software, will present a talk entitled, “How to see 300 million images? Exploring Large Cultural Data to Unlearn What We Know.”

Manovich has pioneered the field of cultural analytics and the visualisation of large sets of data. His work has thought hard about the ways to design software and thereby configure and understand the humanities through computational and novel digital methods. His training and work in computer science—his current department psychology, art, digital cinema, and media history have been innovative, admirably free of the typical preconceptions, and consistently intriguing.

It’s sure to be dope
