The workshop will introduce the concepts underpinning what’s currently called AI and explore how artists have been using and responding to the technology of mass data analysis. From image manipulation to government surveillance, AI underpins much of modern life yet is often intangible and invisible. By the end of this workshop you’ll have a clear understanding of how the technology works, have started to grapple with its implications and be ready to start making art with and/or about it.
The workshop will be led by artist, Pete Ashton. Pete has been exploring the potentials and implications of recent developments in AI / Machine Learning. This workshop is aimed at artists and creative practitioners who are intrigued by this new technology but do not necessarily have the technical chops to dive in head first. No computing knowledge is necessary.
