[Autom. eng. transl.] What do we do with images today? And above all, what do the images do with us and with us? This book seeks an answer by analyzing five devices (plus one): smart glasses, light field cameras, night vision goggles, augmented reality, neural networks and electronic-digital photomicrography. Computational images, called algorithms in these pages, arise from the connection of resources belonging to the political economy of light and visuals with those of the information and data economy. They are, together, objects and tools of the production, extraction and distribution of common resources: "algorithmic capital" thus becomes the most appropriate name to define the constitutive features of post-media society.
