The Anatomy of AI: An Opportunity or Threat to the Artistic Process

Art & Science
The Anatomy of AI: An Opportunity or Threat to the Artistic Process
Event Description

With Gary Shaw, Katie Richardson, Michaela Black and Wendy Erskine, chaired by Michael Quinn

In the modern world it is becoming increasingly difficult to tell whether a piece of art was created by a computer or a human. Recent advances in machine learning have led to a influx of visual art, writing and music generated by AI technology. What does this mean for the artistic process, artists and audiences and what does it mean for the nature of true creativity?

Join us for a panel discussion and debate focusing on the impact and consequences of artificial intelligence from an arts practitioner and creative producer perspective. The panel, chaired by arts writer, journalist, theatre reviewer and former BBC Radio Drama producer, Michael Quinn, will feature visual artist Gary Shaw, musician, songwriter, composer and sound designer Katie Richardson, writer Wendy Erskine and Michaela Black, Professor of AI at University of Ulster.
