The IACS seminar series is free and open to the public but registration is required.

Talk Abstract: In this talk, Dr. Hertzmann will discuss whether computers, using Artificial Intelligence (AI), can create art. His talk will cover the history of automation in art, examining the hype and reality of AI tools for art together with predictions about how they will be used. Dr. Hertzmann will also discuss different scenarios for how an algorithm could be considered the author of a piece of artwork, which, he argues, comes down to questions of why we create and appreciate artwork.
