Creative AI: Future or Paradox?
Redefining Arts & Creativity in the Age of Technology
Can computers be capable of creative work independent of human interference? What will the impact of artificial intelligence on the future of creativity be? Can solely computer generated art still be considered “Art” in today’s terms? Is AI a blessing that will finally help scale our creative output or is it an illusion that will cheapen the creative labor?
Many new questions arise with the application of AI on creative fields such as visual arts, literature or music. Now, the time has arrived to discuss the impact of technology and to redefine arts & creativity in the age of AI. The Sonophilia Spark is a salon dedicated to opening in-depth discussions with worldwide experts from the fields of creative AI, deep learning, business and arts.
