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 evening ended with two performances: actors interpreting a new script written by Goodwin’s AI during the event, followed by Gamut Inc, an ensemble that uses custom-made computer-driven mechanical music-machines, and who has developed specialised live-control software which allows playing techniques not accessible to human performers.
