Can AI be creative? Or is creativity one of the few realms where humans cannot be replaced by machines, software and automation? In cooperation with the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften, STATE presents an evening with talks, artist presentations and performances on the topic of Artificial Creativity, the final events in the academy’s two day program “How do new ideas come into being? Analog thinking in science and art — Leibniz’s idea of invention”. These sessions ask the question: Can AI be creative? Or is creativity one of the few realms where humans cannot be replaced by machines, software and automation?
The program will kick off with the screening of "Sunspring”, a short science fiction movie written entirely by AI. Then, our keynote speaker will be Margaret Boden, author of “Creativity and Art: Three Roads to Surprise” and research professor of cognitive science at Sussex University’s Department of Informatics.
