Podcast #73 – Image Analysis for Skeptics: From Faces to Pyramids (Live Talk)

The mysterious
Veil on phographs, Lifted
in this episode.

This episode was filmed in front of a live studio audience at this year’s Denver Skepticamp last weekend. The episode is a short version of a workshop that Bryan Bonner and I will be co-leading at TAM this summer. As such, feedback is solicited! (as usual)

I’ve posted the materials (slides and two movies) to the shownotes page for this episode.

Since this was a live talk, the normal other segments were not done.



  1. Love the talk. I think I’ve heard you say just about everything in it before, but it was still very good. BTW, there is no game “Call of Duty Zombies”. Maybe look into it further. I always enjoy Hoagland-Bara discussion. (Maybe they should send you a check sometime).

  2. Well done Stuart — quite worthwhile. Is there a missing slide in the pdf shownotes? When talking about noise reduction, you spoke as though you were showing a before-and-after image pair, but I only see the “before”.

  3. Disregard — I’ve found the animation now.

  4. Okay, I just saw your slides and haz to say something: the picture with the cat biting the camera is pretty great.
