In the last years, important breakthroughs in technologies like Machine Learning have spawned a revolution in Artificial Intelligence. We hear everyday that AI will automate jobs in all sectors and replace many humans, except those more creative. However, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence also has many things to tell us about human creativity and how it works. As we build systems with cognition that can understand and recognize the world, new forms of reading the world will also be created, forms that may have never came out of a human brain.
Creativity Beyond Human Creativity. Kenric McDowell (Google Artists + Machine Intelligence)
The Google Artists + Machine Intelligence program brings artists and engineers together to build projects using Machine Intelligence. This emerging form of artistic collaboration opens new ways of thinking about and working with intelligent systems. It brings together artists and thinkers, researchers, engineers, and, of course, the machine intelligences these researchers and engineers are building. AI curator, Kenric McDowell will talk about this program and how AI entities are not simply tools, but collaborators in the creative process.
Humans and Non Humans - Arts in the Machine Learning Age
The first generation of creative tools based on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are being created as we speak. Artificial characters and bots with wit and sarcasm; unexpected and surprising images produced without the intervention of any human, or music software where performers and intelligent systems can collaborate in new pieces. How will artists and creators change the way they work when their tools can come up with creative decisions? We gather researchers, technologists and creators at the foreground of this space.
Participants in this session will be:
Magenta: Google Brain’s initiative to develop tools that use machine learning to create compelling art and music. The Magenta team (Douglas Eck and Adam Roberts) will demo their set of tools with the help of the group Desert, who are inviting artificial intelligence into their process.
Freya Murray: Program Manager at Google Arts & Culture Lab, where they are introducing machine learning experiments in museums and cultural institutions, exploring new ways to experience culture.
Memo Akten: Digital artist working with computation as a medium and Google AMI resident, Akten explores collaborative co-creativity between humans and machines.
Darius Kazemi: Bot Creator, one of the undisputed masters of creating poetic, subversive and provocative bots on Twitter and around the internet.
