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!
