PostSubject: Personas   Thu Aug 20, 2009 10:10 pm

I got bored and started playing around with this today.
http://personas.media.mit.edu/

Personas is a component of the Metropath(ologies) exhibit, currently on display at the MIT Museum by the Sociable Media Group from the MIT Media Lab. It uses sophisticated natural language processing and the Internet to create a data portrait of one's aggregated online identity. In short, Personas shows you how the Internet sees you.

Enter your name, and Personas scours the web for information and attempts to characterize the person - to fit them to a predetermined set of categories that an algorithmic process created from a massive corpus of data. The computational process is visualized with each stage of the analysis, finally resulting in the presentation of a seemingly authoritative personal profile.

In a world where fortunes are sought through data-mining vast information repositories, the computer is our indispensable but far from infallible assistant. Personas demonstrates the computer's uncanny insights and its inadvertent errors, such as the mischaracterizations caused by the inability to separate data from multiple owners of the same name. It is meant for the viewer to reflect on our current and future world, where digital histories are as important if not more important than oral histories, and computational methods of condensing our digital traces are opaque and socially ignorant.





This is what my screenshot looked like.
It was intresting.
Has anyone else done this?

I just did a screenshot.
Where it says on your computer print screen you push that button.
Then open MS paint(if you have that) and press Ctrl + V this pastes it into paint and then Save (Ctrl + S) it showed up in my pictures so I titled it & uploaded it to photobucket so I could show you guys how it looked.
grin

Okay... I think that site might be crap. I typed in stuff differently and the same and came up with all different answers everytime!

It shouldn't do that when you type it in exactly the same right?
