Talk : State of the AI-Art

Speaker : Luba Elliot

This talk will give an overview of how artists and creative technologists are using and thinking about artificial intelligence. Over the past couple of years, there has been increasing interest in applying the latest advances in machine learning to creative projects in art, music, film, theatre and beyond. From Google's DeepDream and style transfer to the world's first computer-generated musical playing in London's West End, more and more creative AI projects are moving beyond the world of research and academia into the public eye. Likewise, the art world has been critically interpreting the impact of these technologies, highlighting the problems of bias, uniformity and surveillance.

Curating the Machine

During 2017, as part of his fellowship at Near Now at Broadway, artist and Curator Antonio Roberts conducted research into the affect AI and automation is having on the role of Curation in the arts.

In this presentation Antonio will present his research, which asks questions about the specific roles of Curators and whether an AI can be used to fully automate an exhibition. This will culminate in a proposal for a Curator AI that he aims to develop in the near future.
