Yemi also works with brands like Google, Apple, Coca-Cola, and T-Mobile, and speaks on stages like TEDx, Texas Eclipse Festival, and SXSW on the future of creativity and space exploration. 
    As a choreographer, Yemi was chosen from among 1 million candidates to be a crew member of dearMoon, marking the first all-civilian space trip around the Moon.

    In this episode, listen to Yemi's incredible journey from growing up as the only Black child where he was raised in Czechoslovakia to his rise as a creative powerhouse and to traveling into space. We also dive into how Yemi's studies of indigenous cultures worldwide gave him insight into the intelligence of movement. He also shares the importance of representation in the tech industry to ensure a more inclusive and human-centered approach to A.I. and robotics — the humanoid robot Apollo was trained on his dance videos! 
    Yemi believes that the best way to predict the future is to create it, and he's doing just that. Tune in to discover his vision for the future he’s working to create.

    Ep48. OpenAI’s Sora Text-to-Video Model: Beta Tester Nik Kleverov Shares His Experience as a Creative Director and Agency Owner

    Ep48. OpenAI’s Sora Text-to-Video Model: Beta Tester Nik Kleverov Shares His Experience as a Creative Director and Agency Owner

    With the golden ticket to test out OpenAI’s Sora, Nik Kleverov joins Creativity Squared to discuss his experience with the text-to-video model and the childlike creativity it unleashed in him.
    Nik is not only an Emmy-grade storyteller but is also an immigrant and the son of a nonconformist artist who the Soviet government persecuted. Nik’s life story and varied experiences inform his diverse approach to creative work, from exploratory use of A.I. within storytelling to design-led title sequence work, and live-action commercials. He’s won numerous advertising and creative industry awards as a creative director. As an entrepreneur and executive, he has started and operated successful and innovative business enterprises, including Native Foreign. He’s the Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer at the women-owned creative agency-production company hybrid based in LA that’s worked with OpenAI on different projects.
    Nik worked with Creativity Squared guest Chad Nelson, who’s now an OpenAI Creative Specialist, on the short film called “Critterz.” This groundbreaking film is the first-ever animated short that’s 100% designed using A.I. visuals with DALL·E. 
    Today, you’ll hear Nik’s experience working with Sora in addition to other text-to-video tools. Nik’s perspective is informed by working with clients on brand commercials, as a filmmaker, and on a team creating original IP. Nik also shares an agency owner’s perspective, discussing why Native Foreign is going all-in as next gen creatives and establishing an A.I. labs division within the agency. Tune in to hear about one of Nik’s creative projects he got out of his vault to bring to life and how it will evolve as genAI video does as well. He dives into the creative process, the ever-changing A.I. landscape, and the paradigm shift underway in the advertising industry.
    Artists need to be part of the development of A.I. tools and this is your chance to hear what Nik is sharing with OpenAI related to Sora. 
    How you can stay ahead of the curve with A.I. and storytelling? Listen in to find out!

    Ep47. Celebrating the 1-Year Anniversary of Creativity Squared: A.I. and the Boundless Sky of Possibility

    Join us as we celebrate the one-year anniversary of Creativity Squared! 
    We at Creativity Squared don’t want anyone to have their head in the sand and then feel like they’ve been hit by a Mack truck with A.I. and all that’s coming. That’s why this platform is dedicated to empowering creators, artists, and curious minds to unlock exponential creativity and confidently navigate A.I. in the new Imagination Age.
    Whether you want to protect your IP and never use A.I. or understand how to accelerate your creative output, you need to know what’s happening, what’s coming, what important conversations are taking place right now, and how they will impact you. If you don’t know where to begin, you’re in the right place.
    Every Thursday, the host Helen Todd interviews trailblazers in A.I. – from artists to ethicists to those building the tech — who understand that A.I. is a tool to amplify the best of human potential — not replace it.
    Check out this special episode to learn more about the origins of the show, the learnings Helen has gained, how she’s involved in uplifting Cincinnati’s 2.25 million residents with A.I., and more.
    Here at Creativity Squared, we invite you to join us in envisioning a world where artists not only co-exist with A.I., but thrive.
    Thank you for being part of the journey, joining the conversation, and co-creating a human-centered future with this technology.

    Ep46. A.I. & the Future of Gaming: Riot Games’ Rudi Bonaparte on A.I.’s Impact on the Gaming Industry and Simulating Real-world Future Society Scenarios

    Ep46. A.I. & the Future of Gaming: Riot Games’ Rudi Bonaparte on A.I.’s Impact on the Gaming Industry and Simulating Real-world Future Society Scenarios

    Are we in a gaming simulation and don’t know it? Listen in to find out!
    Meet Rudi Bonaparte who’s driving innovation at Riot Games, the gaming studio that created the iconic ‘League of Legends’ which is the most-played PC game in the world.
    Rudi is a gaming executive with a professional focus on creating systems and spaces that empower creators to do their best work. As Riot Game’s Director of Corporate Operations and Strategy, he helps senior executives and game development teams set clear goals, build exciting new capabilities, and thoughtfully allocate resources through a combination of strategic thinking and tactical implementation.
    Charged with a new task in his role, Rudi ensures that Riot Games not only designs the most player-focused gaming experiences in the world, but is also the best and most creative place to develop these games.
    Prior to joining Riot Games, Rudi led strategy and analytics teams at Teach for America and consulted with clients in the tech, telecom, and media industries. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Harvard and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern.
    A.I. has many implications for gaming which sits at the intersection of technology, art, and entertainment. In today’s conversation, Rudi discusses the state of the gaming industry, from the economic realities to the exciting possibilities of innovation emerging from recent disruption. Rudi shares his perspective on A.I, gaming, and IP along with how Hollywood and gaming are converging.
    We also explore gaming as a testbed for ideas that could shape society, what Rudi would build into a virtual environment to nurture the best of humanity, and the lessons that in-game currency and incentive structures hold for the real world. We also touch on some of Rudi's favorite works of speculative fiction and why he believes the future will be brighter than many imagine.

    Ep45. A.I. & Ethics: Where Do We Draw the Line? Discover How to Navigate A.I. with Leading Moral Reasoning & Knowledge Scholar Dr. Andrew Cullison

    Where do we draw the line with A.I. from an ethical lens?
    Meet Dr. Andrew Cullison who is the founding executive director of the Cincinnati Ethics Center and a research professor at the University of Cincinnati who specializes in moral reasoning, ethics education, and leadership development. With over 15 peer-reviewed publications to his name, Andy is a leading scholar on questions of how we can have moral knowledge. You're in for a treat to hear Andy's insights that offer a philosopher's perspective on some of the most pressing issues of our time.
    Prior to his current role, Andy spent over seven years as Director of the Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University, one of the largest collegiate ethics institutes in the country. In addition to his academic work and passion for helping people of all ages develop crucial moral reasoning skills, Andy conducts workshops for K-12 students, teams, and organizations like the FBI to apply philosophical tools to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion. 
    In this episode’s conversation, Andy shares the importance of teaching ethics in an A.I. world, what he's learned from experimenting with ChatGPT's moral reasoning abilities, practical tips, moral framework exercises for navigating everyday ethical dilemmas, and more. He emphasizes the urgent need for practitioners developing A.I. to receive robust ethics training so they can spot potential issues early on.
    Listen in to sharpen your own thinking about the thorny moral challenges surrounding A.I. development and implementation.

    Ep44. A Conversation with Salvador Dalí: Expand Your Mind on Immortality, Art, and A.I. with The Dalí Museum’s OpenAI GPT-4 ‘Ask Dalí’ Exhibit with Martin Pagh Ludvigsen, Director of Creative Technology & A.I. at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners

    Ep44. A Conversation with Salvador Dalí: Expand Your Mind on Immortality, Art, and A.I. with The Dalí Museum’s OpenAI GPT-4 ‘Ask Dalí’ Exhibit with Martin Pagh Ludvigsen, Director of Creative Technology & A.I. at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners

    What if you could have a conversation with Salvador Dalí? Now you can…with the A.I. version of Dalí!
    To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Surrealism, we have a special Creativity Squared episode for you today with none other than the legendary Surrealist artist, Salvador Dalí…or rather, the A.I.-reimagined Dalí! The artist famously wrote, “If someday I may die, though it is unlikely, I hope the people in the cafes will say, ‘Dalí has died, but not entirely.’”  
    The Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida is one of the most innovative museums in the world. Today, the museum is unveiling its latest project bringing Salvador Dalí back to life through artificial intelligence called “Ask Dalí.” This custom-built chatbot is trained on Dalí’s writings and voice so museumgoers can interact directly with the artist through a Surrealist lobster telephone. 
    To add color and context to this conversation, we also have Martin Pagh Ludvigsen joining us. Martin was on a SXSW panel called, “Salvador Dalí, AI, and The Future of Creativity.” “Ask Dalí” was demoed on stage where host Helen Todd asked if Dalí would be a guest on Creativity Squared!  
    Martin is a Creative Technologist, A.I. Director, and head of Labs at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. Originally from Denmark, Martin holds degrees in Computer Science and Theater Science, where his creative journey started by moving his body on stages and then by moving pixels on screens. Martin uses cutting-edge tech to tell stories for brands and has directed award-winning work globally. Like many others, Martin likes to tinker and break things. But unlike most, he also likes putting them back together in new and unexpected ways.
    The Dalí Museum is a client of Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, and Martin was instrumental in bringing “Ask Dalí” to life. You’ll learn more about this project and the museum’s other groundbreaking work using VR, synthetic media, and OpenAI’s DALL-E in their exhibitions. And yes, you’ll also get to hear Dalí answer questions at the intersection of A.I. and creativity on today’s show, including the one “he” recommended on stage at SXSW. 
    What is Dalí’s answer to the question, "How can the cold, calculated precision of artificial intelligence be melted into the surreal, liquid dreams of human creativity?" Listen in to find out!

Found More Understanding…and Hope

When I began listening to Creativity Squared, I was skeptical of AI, and almost certain of its role in a dystopian future. Today, months later and thanks to Helen and her guests, I am no longer skeptical, but better informed and even a bit hopeful for how humans can manage AI to harness creativity and yes, sustain our humanity.

In fact, I have even used C-Squared episodes in a college course that I teach, designed to help students understand their own human experience, and the forces that influence, enhance or inhibit our humanity. This podcast has given them hope and understanding as well.

BONUS: Helen’s personable charm and delightful sense of curiosity provide a bridge between the knowledge of super smart guests and my basic—but growing—understanding.
