Arts Two TV Shows

1) Machine learning via watching COPS:
I like to watch / CopVision is a program that watches television. Specifically, it watches COPS on Fox. It is not a video, it is a software process that tries to make sense of a live video feed. COPS is all it has ever known, and it probably thinks it is COPS …
CopVision learns its language from closed captioning subtitles transmitted in the television signal. Everything that is said on COPS is tucked away in its memory to help it understand what it’s seeing.
2) Mild discomfort via watching Full House:
You’re Not My Father, by Paul Slocum, is composed of a sequence of recreations of a 10 second scene from the television show Full House, overlaid with sound loops from the scene’s original music.
And now, just because I can, an image of Vanilla Ice being attacked by a swarm of bees.￼
