In the context of the European Culture and Technology Laboratory (ECT Lab+) seminar series, Media Arts & Design Research Lab (MADLab – Department of Multimedia & Graphic Arts) and the Department of Fine Arts, Cyprus University of Technology, invite you to a round-table discussion on the topic “Creative machines: Thinking about creative agents and artistic values”.
The roundtable discussion will focus on critical philosophical questions revolving around computational creativity, creative software agents and their aesthetic/artistic values. In particular, the focus will be on computational processes such as artificial intelligence and machine learning and their aesthetic/artistic values. Looking at creativity through a critical lens, can we assume that a computer exhibits creativity independently of a human creator or is agency a necessary part of a creative process?
