I know that I would like to use passive audio recordings in my final project but I’m not exactly sure what I will do with them. My current best idea, seeks to primitively figure out when “interesting audio” is being made in the environment my object is placed in. When it believes interesting things are happening it sends the audio to be evaluated by a mechanical turk where they will decide what the “tone” of the audio is. For example the Turkers will respond with an “emotion” which corresponds to the audio. That emotion will be parsed into some kind of visual or audio response which can be recorded throughout the day.
Here’s an odd sketch.
