Workshop – Creative Artificial Intelligence: Boosting your Artistic Ability.

12 June 2019 - Latrobe Regional Gallery, Morwell Victoria

Can A.I. make you more creative? In this workshop with researchers from SensiLab at Monash University, we explore how the latest advancements in Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) can be used to inspire you and enhance your artistic skills.

Whether it’s searching Google for a ‘mountain’ image or browsing the Related Pins section in Pinterest, when you search for pictures online most search systems used content-based searches. But using visual similarity search – where A.I. searches for images that have similar colours, features and/or textures – can reveal surprises and help you learn more about your interests and style. This can spark ideas and provide inspiration for your own designs and artwork.

In this workshop, the group will learn more about how and why these A.I. systems are used. Followed by their own chance to respond to a design brief, using an A.I. powered app created by SensiLab to enhance their creative expression.

Presented as part of Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of Media Art, 6 April – 30 June 2019, Latrobe Regional Gallery (Morwell, VIC).
