Is Artificial Intelligence the Future of Art?

Thursday, May 30
6:30 PM  

Panel discussion

On October 25, 2018, a major auction house offered a work of art created by Artificial Intelligence (AI) for sale. The painting sold for an astonishing $350,000. Did the sale reflect the draw of a singular moment—the first time an AI painting was up for auction—or did it reflect a pivotal turning point for the art market and art history, a bet that AI is the future of art? Join speakers from the art world and academia to explore questions such as: What is creativity? What is originality? and Who or what can make art? 

Event Speakers:
     •  Ahmed Elgammal, Professor, Computer Science, Rutgers University and Director of the Art and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory
     •  Lindsay Griffith, International Head of Contemporary Editions, Christie’s
     •  Matthew Jones, James R. Barker Professor of Contemporary Civilization and Leader of Big Data and Science Studies Research Cluster, Columbia University
     •  Srividya Kannan Ramachandran, Marketing Science at Facebook and Artist working in AI

Free and open to the public. Seating is first come, first-served. An RSVP is not required.
