Dear AoIR colleagues,

I wanted to forward and highlight Sophia's email about this event in case
you didn't see it -- I don't think it was sent to this list. Many of you
who work on surveillance will already be familiar with Adam Harvey's
totally amazing CV Dazzle anti-face-detection makeup / hairstyles (
https://adam.harvey.studio/cvdazzle/) or perhaps his HyperFace obfuscation
fabric (https://adam.harvey.studio/hyperface/). He has some thrilling
newer projects about machine learning data provenance and the use of
computer vision for human rights problems -- such as landmine detection.

It is possible to participate online from anywhere in the world, and the
talk timing is good for Europe. I hope you will join us.

Also: In case you see this email late, it is OK to RSVP immediately before
the Zoom event starts or even after it has started. This will still work.
