Adam Harvey is an American artist and researcher based in Berlin focused on computer vision, forensics, and counter-forensics. 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 Aarhus University symposium on facial machines (2018), Georgetown Color of Surveillance (2018), re:publica Berlin (2018), TEDx Vilnius (2017), German Spy Museum (2017), re:publica Berlin (2016), HOPE (NYC), Elevate (Graz, 2017), and CCC (Hamburg, 2016), and European Commission's Annual Security Symposium (Brussels, 2015).

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.
