From legal sentencing recommendations to creating sounds never before heard and images never before seen, autonomous vehicles and optimizing the design of chairs, conversational agents embedded in daily objects to real-time responsive intelligent physical environments, we are transforming how we live and create through the application of machine learning and generative models to human endeavors. This session explores advances in the application of artificial intelligence in the arts and design along multiple dimensions: AI as a medium, method(s), tool(s) and new creative practices, evolving views of creativity and authorship, and the societal and cultural impacts. Does generative and machine creativity, or AI in the arts and design, represent an evolution of “artistic intelligence” or is it a rupture in the evolution of creative practice yielding new forms and types of authorship? There’s obviously so much more to this topic than this, and we hope you’ll join us in exploring crucial questions on this theme.
