Adam Harvey is an artist and researcher based in Berlin exploring societal impacts of networked data analysis technologies with a focus on computer vision and counter-surveillance. He is a graduate of the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University (2010) and previously studied engineering and photojournalism at the Pennsylvania State University.
I'm based in Berlin and occasionally speak or consult on topics related to privacy, surveillance, security, biometrics, counter-surveillance and computer vision. Previous events include TEDx Vilnius (2017), German Spy Museum (2017), re:publica Berlin (2016), the European Commission's Annual Security Symposium (Brussels, 2015), HOPE (NYC), Elevate (Graz, 2017), and CCC (Hamburg, 2016).

Alongside personal projects, I frequently work as a developer for other artists. Recent projects include developing a custom computer vision toolkit for the artist Trevor Paglen, a facial recognition system for Ai Weiwei, neural networks for Constant Dullaart, and a computer vision fooling scarf for Hyphen Lab's NSAF project.
