    AI, Robotics, and Art

    AI, Robotics, and Art

    In this conversation, Sougwen Chung (Scilicet Studio), Freya Murray (Google Arts & Culture), and Suhair Khan (open-ended design) talk about the confluence of machine learning and robotics with artistic practice.
    Could we imagine an engineer as an artist, or an artist as an engineer? Can you make real innovations in designing with machine learning without access to research teams at major tech companies? Should algorithms be given names to remind ourselves that they are not “neutral”?
