Symposium: Making Art in the Age of Algorithms

Friday, December 7, 2018
1:00pm to 4:00pm

Join us for a reflection on algorithms that generate art. What is the difference between a set of instructions for a person and a set of instructions for a computer? Is training a neural network an artistic endeavor? How can we analyze a piece of music that can be generated infinitely? In what ways are our preferences mediated by algorithms? Come see talks, demos, and performances inspired by a semester of debating and discussing the technical and critical issues surrounding algorithms, art, and the act of creation 

Free and open, please RSVP
