AI is widely used today for tasks like speech recognition, computer vision, machine translation, dialog systems or chatbots. But can AI be applied to art? There have been several attempts to use deep learning in computer vision to produce pictures and paintings. Some were even sold at auction houses. Beyond using AI as tools for artists, can AI and machine learning generate new forms of art? In this talk, Prof. Pascale Fung will challenge the notion of creativity as a human trait by presenting some of the groundbreaking research on AI and art that was created in collaboration with Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. She will show that, beyond multimedia and digital, we have entered a new era of “AI art” - art that is partially created by the machine and partially by human artists.
