Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is transforming all aspects of society, from the legal, health, and finance systems to news media, shopping, and entertainment. How are creative industries leveraging these tools in their artistic and professional practice? What role does creativity play in the design of A.I. and its use for positive social impact? And how might creatives cultivate an ethical practice when collaborating with A.I.? This course will examine A.I.’s multidisciplinary origins and applications from an art and design perspective. Topics will include, but are not limited to: machine learning, A.I.-enabled arts, bias, ethics, computational design, creativity, learning science, innovation, and new media. No programming background is required. Through hands-on learning, lectures, critical literature and media, and design-led research, participants will explore A.I. through their interests and personal creative practice. Informed by their research and learnings from the course material, students will produce a final project that utilizes A.I. and focuses on its social implications. Students will also have the opportunity to contribute toward experimental ways of disseminating their work through new media and a planned exhibition.
