While creative machines have existed since the 1950s, their debut into public awareness arose only at the end of 2022, largely due to the advent and popularization of large language models for the creation of text and art. This talk will walk through a brief history of creative machines from their origins in the field of Computational Creativity to their popularization under the recently coined term, Generative AI. Several systems for the creation of art and music will be showcased in an interactive demo. Challenging questions around the future of human creativity in the age of creative machines will be addressed, offering a roadmap for utilizing generative AI to elevate, rather than diminish, human creativity.

Keywords: Generative AI, computational creativity, music, art


This event is fully booked.
