Artificial Intelligence application and research in the Arts and Humanities
Where do artificial intelligence, computational thinking and knowledge production intersect with humanist inquiry and visual aesthetics? This course centers on the production and output of humanist research, creative visual design, artwork and artifacts through machines and algorithms. The roles of authorship, data creation, data ethics, creativity and aesthetics will be interrogated through readings and research on theoretical texts and existing modes of cultural production. Students are expected to contribute to the course as technological makers, humanists, artists, hackers and engineers.
