Artificial Intelligence. Not a day goes by these days without another article about a new skill the machines have learned again. Now they even seem to start challenging us humans in a field that we deemed to be exclusively ours: creativity. Maybe it's a good idea to hear a bit more about what this artificial creativity is really capable of and if it is something you should learn or be afraid of. But chances are that you are not a computer scientist, so how could you ever understand any of this? Don't despair, it's not that complicated. Actually, as you will hear in this talk, it is a bit like cooking. And you know how to boil an egg, don't you? No need to have studied the laws of thermodynamics or to have a degree in biology for that.
Mario Klingemann will show you some of his artistic experiments that use deep learning and neural networks to generate visuals - some of which might be considered "art". Along the way he will introduce you to some of the basic concepts behind this new way of creation and will tell you ways how you could try it for yourself.
