Based on the personal experience of discriminating facial detection models Iyo created a game in which the goal is to avoid to be detected:
"facial detection algorithms were struggling to detect me, and the reason they were struggling to detect me is because I’m black. I had to be very creative to be detected so during the workshop" (1)
The Human Detector inverts the rules, it becomes a gain not to be detected:
"By doing this, I recreated my own experience with ml4a and AI, but I inverted the rules so that I win every time. " (1)
By subverting the rules of the facial detection apparatus Iyo aims to question what biases are propagated by machine vision technologies such as facial recognition.
