Product Description

"For one year I’ve been taking photographs of anything I could find around me on my iPhone. These photographs were then submitted to Amazon Remembers application, which promises to find the best match to the photo on Amazon.Co.Uk online shop.

In the manual to the application it says that a mix of artificial intelligence and human labor is used in the matching process.

When artificial intelligence falls short of recognizing the suitable product, the image gets sent to MechanicalTurk.Com. This website is owned and run by Amazon and is mainly used by the the companies who want to post routine jobs and by the people mainly from China and India who are willing to perform them. Each job is called a “hit” and brings a few cents to the person who performs it. Amazon calls the people who do the “hits” on Mechanical Turk “Artificial Articial Intelligence”.

This 218-page book catalogues our interactions in chronological order. On the left side of the page is the image I sent to Amazon, on the right side of the page is the image and text I received in return, usually within seconds or minutes." - Dmitry Paranyushkin
