Artificial Intelligence and Cinemaonline course
This interdisciplinary course approaches the relationship between artificial intelligence (AI) and cinema in two interconnected ways. The first part of the course traces the fictional portrayals of AI in contemporary films that cut across various genres (horror, science fiction, romantic drama, animation), focusing on themes such as the turbulent relationship between human and machine, otherness, posthumanism, surveillance, and technological control (and chaos) that form the core concerns of these narratives. The second part of the course will focus on an applied aspect of cinema’s relationship with AI: the emergent uses of AI and machine learning algorithms in the film industry, ranging from the business dimension (e.g. film marketing, predicting box office performance, distribution and recommender systems) to the creative dimension (e.g. screenwriting, casting, editing).
Note: This course is aimed at students from all disciplines and does not assume prior knowledge in film studies nor computer science.
