Where does machine intelligence & human creativity intersect?
A special evening focused on the trials & tribulations of collaborating with artificial intelligence. Join us as we pull back the curtain on Frankenstein AI: a monster made by many an immersive experience that mixes machine learning, projection mapping, the internet of things, multitouch interfaces, & participatory theater. Well share details about the design & build of the Sundance Film Festival installation & discuss recent experimentation in Munich that harnessed Frankenstein AI as a tool for speculative design.
The evening will include lightning talks by
Lance Weiler - aesthetics & constraints
Rachel Ginsberg - embodied storytelling moments
Brandon Powers - algorithmic choreography
Afterwards, we'll step into a collaborative design & playtesting process lead by Nick Fortugno that will inform the evolution of Frankenstein AI, a multi-year design research project that experiments with creative uses of AI to explore algorithmic bias & develop inclusive design practice for emergent technology. Like many of Columbia DSLs initiatives, Frankenstein AI is a Copy Left project released under a Creative Commons license intended to be remixed & shared.
