Imagine if Lady Gaga and Mozart had collaborated on “Poker Face”--what might it have sounded like? What if you were able to travel back in time for a portrait sitting with Picasso? What would it be worth to have an always-available ghostwriter to supply the next few paragraphs when writer’s block strikes? Artificial Intelligence, in the form of generative deep learning, allows us to mix and match creative styles and can provide new ways to express our creativity. We’ll try out some of these in a live demonstration, and discuss how generative AI might change shape the future of creative expression.  

Bring your laptops if you wish to try out demos for yourself.
