Collaborating with Artificial Intelligence, a J-Term course taught by Sarah Newman, Dir. of Art & Education, metaLAB and Juliana Castro Varon, Fellow, Berkman Klein Center for the Internet & Society, will take place on Thur., Jan. 12 and Fri., Jan. 13 from 2-4:30pm at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD). The two-day workshop explores the implications of artificial intelligence systems on our everyday lives and allows students to experiment with contemporary tools that aid creativity. We will cover a short history of AI, discuss its current applications, distinguish AI hype from reality, and contend with the ethical considerations surrounding its use. We will also create artworks (images, poems, short fiction) that incorporate and critique AI technologies, and we’ll explore how AI can be used to create new forms of entertainment, art, and design.
Collaborating with Artificial Intelligence is open to GSD students, alumni, and staff (registration).
