Event Title: EASTN-DC
Date and Time: 30/05/2021 (10:00-22:00)

Exhausting a Crowd is a modern artistic attempt by Kyle Mac Donald to automate the future of surveillance by using a combination of human and machine intelligence in a dystopian environment. The audience is invited to annotate on a footage filmed and broadcasting people in public spaces. Unlike the AI-based surveillance systems that are globally used nowadays arising ethical issues about public privacy, this work turns public surveillance into a source for entertainment. In this paper we are discussing the ethical issues that are implied in Mac Donald’s work regarding public surveillance, the role of AI and Big Data with associated benefits, risks and limitations, and people’s attitudes towards them.
