Within the Machine Learning for Artists workshop program in Opendot from 21st to 25th of November, we are proud to invite you to the Gene Kogan OpenTalk, on Wednesday 23rd at 7 pm in Opendot lab.
A Beautiful and Interesting Game: a lecture by Gene Kogan on creative applications for Machine Learning algorithms
This talk examines the rise of machine learning and artificial intelligence through the lens of artistic practice and creative subversion. Recent breakthroughs in scientific research, combined with the proliferation of big data and cheap GPU computing power, have dramatically increased the capacities of machine intelligence in a variety of domains. The tech titans have swiftly integrated them into most of their core services, whilst numerous startups have appeared to capitalize on emerging markets. At the same time, artists, boosted by independent open source implementations, have attempted to subvert and illuminate those same technologies, shedding light on the sometimes beautiful and sometimes dangerous new faculties of these powerful algorithms.
