Students will learn the fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence and understand the implications of these techniques in creative processes, and in society as a whole. During the course, students will explore the intersections of technology, creativity, and culture, and how artificial intelligence can contribute to these areas in exciting and innovative ways. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the potential of artificial intelligence as a tool for artistic expression and creativity. From generative music to computer-generated poetry, we will explore how AI can be used to create new forms of art that challenge our preconceived notions of what it means to be creative. Secondly, students will examine the ethical implications of AI, particularly in the context of art, culture and society. We will consider the role of AI in perpetuating biases and inequalities and discuss strategies for creating AI systems that are more equitable and inclusive. The course will encourage students to explore the intersections of AI and creativity. Through class discussions and project work, we will share ideas, perspectives, and experiences that will enrich the student’s understanding of this field. Hopefully, beyond the course, students will continue exploring AI's potential in creative processes, embrace the opportunities that arise from combining their creative talents with technological innovation, and create meaningful and impactful work.
