Today’s computers are composing music that sounds “more Bach than Bach,” turning photographs into paintings in the style of Van Gogh’s Starry Night, and even writing screenplays. But are algorithms truly creative—or are they merely tools to be used by musicians, artists, and writers? Join physicist and author Arthur I. Miller (The Artist in the Machine: The World of AI-Powered Creativity, 2019), composer and media artist Doug Geers, artist and hacktivist Ricardo Dominguez, and award-winning director of algorithmic theatre, Annie Dorsen for a mind-bending session on the complex intersections of artists, machines, and the future of artistic experiences.
