UP AND COMING: COULD AI REPLACE THE TRADITIONAL CREATIVE PROCESS?
It’s a question many are asking. The past few months have seen the film industry test AI-powered solutions to actually make art, not just inform it. Sure, these are early days. But it’s only natural to wonder what the future of creation will look like as a result: Is AI a creative friend, or a future competitor? And what kind of data helps inform an AI that creates, versus just iterating past human patterns? In a session that may yield even more questions than answers, creatives, stakeholders and a data scientist explore the future of creativity in collaboration with the machine mind.
