‘Panel 1 | Generator | Human+AI creativity in the arts’

Human+AI creativity in the arts

The accelerated development of AI has raised concerns over the possibility that it could supersede humans in every activity, including the quintessentially human ability of being creative. Machine learning research has shown that a computer programme can generate outputs that mimic an actual photograph, as well as drawings, music, or texts created by humans. It has therefore been suggested that AI can become creative by producing content that not only imitates, but innovates, potentially supplanting the artist’s role.
This panel brings together visual artists, designers, creatives, theorists and cultural producers, who will discuss the challenges and opportunities in conceiving AI systems as self-sufficient creators or, conversely, as creation tools in the hands of a human artist. What role should AI play in the creative process?
