Event description

Description

Artificial Intelligence has already had a profound impact on society and culture, which will continue to increase. Computer scientist Andrew Ng hated noted that “AI is the new electricity”, since it will affect every aspect of society, industry, and culture. An important and expanding branch of AI is Machine Learning (ML), which aims to enable computers to learn to accopmlish tasks without explicitly programming them to do so.

Many artists, designers, and professionals are drawn to these new technologies as expressive media for they are effectively expanding what is possible in terms of expression, as well as having an extreme impact on production costs as well as a substantial cultural and social impact.

Targets
This week-long workshop will encourage creative professionals in design, art, and related disciplines to apply AI technologies into their practice and reflect on their broader cultural impact. The workshop will also appeal to members of the public who are not designers or artists but who would like to learn about these important technologies.

Time
Monday May 28 to Friday June 1, 2018
Hours: 6pm - 9pm daily

Instructor
Gene Kogan is an internationally renowned American artist and a programmer who is interested in generative systems, computer science, and software for creativity and self-expression. He is a collaborator within numerous open-source software projects, and gives workshops and lectures on topics at the intersection of code and art. Gene initiated ML4A, a free book about machine learning for artists, activists, and citizen scientists, and regularly publishes video lectures, writings, and tutorials to facilitate a greater public understanding of the subject. He has recently offered courses on the subject of machine learning for artists at NYU, Tisch School of the Arts, Interactive Telecommunications Program.
