Robots have stopped being clumsy automats to become artistic collaborators. Thanks to machine learning, these non-human entities learn from their creators and collaborate with them.
We will count on the artist and researcher Sougwen Chung, known for her particular use of robotics, AI and visual arts. Chung will offer a talk about creative collaboration between humans and robots: “Machines as creative catalysts”, where she wonders: What happens when humans and machines collaborate together?
We will also count on the Barcelona new media artist and coder Mónica Rikić. This specialist in experimental games and interaction, will present her most recent work, which features interactive narratives and social robots, that question our approach towards non-human entities, and the omnipotent role of AI.
