🤖👻Tricking AI trough a poncho

Who:  German design studio WertelOberfell

What: the Ignotum poncho

 

The idea: The agency developed together with technical partners, created the Ignotum poncho/ The  AI Ignotum is about confusing artificial intelligences (AIs) that are used to analyse CCTV footage.

How:

The engineers used cameras with an integrated object detection algorithm MobileNetV2, trained with COCO dataset. They developed a digital mannequin and tested it with hundreds of clothing variations in a virtual environment.

The researchers then designed several real-world samples of costumes with LED ribbons. The result was a three-layer more cape with embedded technical components capable of reducing AI recognition accuracy under various conditions to the point where further image processing is impossible.

Materials and technologies:

Ignotum is designed in layers – the base layer, which gives it a basic stability, a semi-transparent second layer that creates in union with the base a moirée effect (to further enhance the AI confusion), and all interlaced with the technical components like power cables, PCBs, LEDs and light fibres.
