Edited by Mitra Azar (Aarhus University), Geoff Cox (University of Plymouth/Aarhus University) and Leonardo Impett (Max Planck Institute for Art History, Rome). How do computers change the way we see the world? This special issue brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines to explore the entanglement of machines and seeing from new critical perspectives. This special issue of AI & Society seeks to explore, half a century after John Berger's Ways of Seeing, how the ideas therein can be understood in the light of state-of-the-art technical developments in machine vision and algorithmic learning: and what and how we see and know is further unsettled. Submissions may include, but are not limited to: * how developments in machine vision morph or unsettle the relations between what we see and know. * the social and political implications of machine vision and of the automation of the image; images by machines for machines. * visual-algorithmic hegemony, changed social dynamics and aesthetic judgement. * how political and artistic discussion can shape scientific research in the field of machine learning and especially deep learning. * the wider discussion on âlearningâ; epistemological and pedagogical issues inspired by visual and algorithmic literacy. * consideration of the types of seeing that machine vision does; enhanced understanding of images, classification systems and curation in relation to taste and its statistical formation. * ways of seeing framed by the notion of eye and gaze, particularly in relation to authority and disembodiment. * visual and computational processes of subjectivation, political agency and algorithmic governmentality. Abstracts of a maximum of 750 words should be submitted through the online submission system (https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/WMS2019/) no later than 30 July 2019 for a double-blind peer review.

Arianna Ciula, Øyvind Eide, Cristina Marras & Patrick Sahle https://www.gesis.org/en/hsr/current-issues/ (scroll down) This Supplement of Historical Social Research stems from the contributions on the topic of modelling presented at the workshop “Thinking in Practice”, held at Wahn Manor House in Cologne on January 19-20, 2017. With Digital Humanities as starting point, practical examples of model building from different disciplines are considered, with the aim of contributing to the dialogue on modelling from several perspectives. Combined with theoretical considerations, this collection illustrates how the process of modelling is one of coming to know, in which the purpose of each modelling activity and the form in which models are expressed has to be taken into consideration in tandem. The modelling processes presented in this volume belong to specific traditions of scholarly and practical thinking as well as to specific contexts of production and use of models. The claim that supported the project workshop was indeed that establishing connections between different traditions of and approaches toward modelling is vital, whether these connections are complementary or intersectional. The workshop proceedings address an underpinning goal of the research project itself, namely that of examining the nature of the epistemological questions in the different traditions and how they relate to the nature of the modelled objects and the models being created. This collection is an attempt to move beyond simple representational views on modelling in order to understand modelling processes as scholarly and cultural phenomena as such.
