Mimi Onuoha @ The Photographers Gallery

2 January 2020 - 31 January 2020

The Future Is Here! is a new commission from artist and researcher Mimi Onuoha which examines the process of dataset creation.

In order to extract value from information, tech companies and researchers increasingly employ machine learning. This process requires huge quantities of data which have been labelled and tagged according to specific criteria, by ‘human work’ that is usually crowdsourced through companies. Without this cheap labour, the bulk of machine learning as it unfolds today would simply not be possible.

The exhibition consists of a series of images and stylised interpretations of the spaces where the top contributors carry out their work, The Future Is Here! teases out the myth and reality of the labour behind machine learning.
