Panel Four: Can AI learn to be creative?

Panel Four: Can AI learn to be creative?

28th February 2019 - panel & location to be announced

Creativity could be described as a form of human expression that communicates emotionally and intellectually an individual’s thoughts and feelings concerning themes about self, dreams and visions, issues and relationships. All people are therefore creative. Creativity is about humanity.

This session, we will be exploring the implications and applications of Artificial Intelligence in our creative industries.

AI has achieved impressive feats on a creative level from the IBM’s Watson cognitive platform producing a trailer for the movie Morgan, to composing music and creating art pieces that critics can’t distinguish from human-created works.

We are starting to question how much involvement AI can or should have in the creative process, and how this could impact our creativity. What could the potential capabilities of AI be, in harnessing the best ideas created by humans?

With the speed of AI innovation, should we yield technology so that AI can create freely without supervision or direction, and should this be the goal even if technically feasible?


In this panel discussion, we will engage in dialogue and explore;
• Could AI be a new creative partner in the creative process?
• Can AI learn what would be truly beautiful?
• Can AI push human creativity as a whole?
• Could AI encourage us to be more creative?
