Add to calendar

Friday, 6th, 3:30 – 7pm (UTC)

To open up the Symposium, the audience will have a chance to get to know the SAAI Factory as well as receive inspiration from the keynote speakers. Those will shine light on the scientific background of image generation and neural networks, cognitive and neuroscientific research, as well as the connection to AI in the contemporary art practice.

3:30 Welcome Notes / Christoph Faulhaber, Artistic Director at the SAAI Factory, Artist in Hamburg
4:00 Keynote 1 / Ahmed Elgammal, Professor at the Department of Computer Science, Founder and Director of the Art and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, and Executive Council Faculty at the Center for Cognitive Science at Rutgers University
5:00 Input 1 / Marc Schipper, Professor of Psychology at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Ottersberg; Manouchehr Shamsrizi, Co-Founder of RetroBrain R&D and gamelab.berlin part of Humboldt University’s Cluster of Excellence: Subjective Reality, Constructivistic Mechanisms and Digital Encounters
6:00 Keynote 2 / Luba Elliott, AI Art curator: AI in Contemporary Art Practice

Over the past few years, there has been increasing interest in applying the latest advances in machine learning to creative projects in art and design. From DeepDream to GANs and CLIP, AI art has moved beyond the world of research and academia to become a trend in its own right. Meanwhile, the contemporary art world’s fascination with the social impact of facial recognition, recommendation systems and deep fakes has encouraged artists to explore AI critically as subject matter. This talk will give an overview of how artists and technologists are using and thinking about machine learning and its creative potential.
