      Computational Culture and A.I.: Challenging human identity and curatorial practice

      , , , , ,
      Proceedings of EVA London 2020 (EVA 2020)
      AI and the Arts: Artificial Imagination
      6th July – 9th July 2020
      Computational culture, AI art, Digital aesthetics, Digital art, Digital culture, Digital heritage, Digitalism, Postdigital


            This half-day Symposium explores themes of computational culture and artificial intelligence (AI) in the context of digital art especially, as well as digital culture and heritage in general. The increasing ubiquity of AI and machine learning raises questions for technology and art in the future, and for the transformations that have already occurred concerning technology and the nature of being. Each symposium speaker approaches the issues from significantly different standpoints, illustrating the complex uncertain nature of the dynamics involved.
