POSTPONED: Automating Art
May 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
Please note: this program has been postponed. New date will be announced soon.
Join us for a lively cross-disciplinary conversation that questions the rising influence of AI and autonomy on the art world.
Experts from the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon—a worldwide leader in AI—will explore the intersection of technology and creative practices like CGI & autotune, and debate their impacts on music, art, and literature.
The panel will also address the future potential of autonomy in art, and whether human artists are at risk of being replaced by computers.
