Making AI Art Responsibly: Artist and AI Co-creation

Lia Coleman—an artist, artificial intelligence (AI) researcher, and educator based in Puebla, Mexico­­—will lead this immersive workshop exploring the process of making AI artwork responsibly. AI is already being used in countless wonderful, creative, and challenging ways. As this fast-paced technology develops, it pushes the frontiers of virtually every field. However, it inevitably raises new questions to consider concerning ethics, responsible AI, and authorship.

In this hands-on workshop, twenty participants will collaborate to make pieces of AI imagery and videos in Google Colab and RunwayML while discussing what to consider when co-creating with a machine that consumes thousands of pieces of data—especially when that data belongs to other people. At the end of the workshop, participants’ creations will be incorporated into a larger final piece in the Tracked & Traced exhibition, alongside a thorough list of credits.

Let’s co-create with AI and with each other, with care!
