Talk: AI and creativity

04 July 2024 15:00 - 15:30 The Royal Society Free Watch online

This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2024.

AI is everywhere, from chatGPT writing your essays to MidJourney and DALL-E creating pictures. Generative AI is taking on tasks we previously thought were uniquely human. 

What are the latest advances in machine creativity, and where does it leave the human artist? 

Artist Eric Drass (aka shardcore) investigates the current state of generative AI and what it means for the future of human creativity.
