[Commlist] Call For Papers: ViewFinder Issue 117 - Artificial Intelligence

Wed Jan 20 15:37:39 GMT 2021

ViewFinder Issue 117 is now open for submission from writers, academics, researchers, and video essayists.
We will be exploring AI and its relationship with audiovisual media.

We’re looking for articles and essays with a focus on Artificial Intelligence plus the future of education, audiovisual and online teaching are most welcome.

How are people using AI to study and analyse television and film? What is the potential of AI in audiovisual academic research, particularly in using archive? How can AI help us improve teaching with audiovisual material? How is AI, Augmented Reality and Computer Vision already informing teaching visually across disciplines?

What ethical issues are there around AI use and images online, how will computer vision look in the future, what are our responsibilities and what is exciting about AI? How has AI been represented on screen in the past, how might stories about AI look in the future?

We have opened up the BoB archive (of over 2.5million broadcasts) to machine learning and data mining so we’re keen to see what this, and other archives might be able to achieve in the future.

ViewFinder is designed to be accessible across academic disciplines and for public readership as well as academia. It is a chance to synthesise and summarise your project work and to offer think pieces and provocations that enrich the public conversation.

Articles from 800-2000 words (this is flexible) and written with accessible language and for a wide, crossover audience.

Deadline for proposals: end of Feb 2021. Deadline for papers/submissions End of March 2021.
