AI Week at Betaworks begins Monday, 11/28/22
Betaworks is hosting a week of events & discussions to explore the new creative frontiers opened up by generative AI. We've witnessed unprecedented developments in how artists & engineers are using generative AI to add creative agency to how we work & play. Over the course of 4 days we will be showcasing insights & projects from an exciting roster of builders & researchers.
About this Event:
Over the last two thousand years, text has inexplicably become the most ubiquitous & the least ergonomic user interface element in the world. We've moved from hand-scribed writing to software word processing, but the underlying material of knowledge is the same - a trail of cryptic characters, lined up next to each other.
Betaworks's very first Researcher in Residence, Linus Lee, has spent the last few months investigating & tinkering around the question of what a next step may look like. He'll walk us through a series of experiments & stories that poke at interesting futures, enabled by recent advances in ML, that may show glimpses into what it means to think in this third millennium.
