Speculative Futures: Art, AI, and Digital Worldmaking is a two-day symposium that will facilitate conversations on the ethical, political, social, and economic impacts of artificial intelligence and machine learning for artists, designers, makers, writers, researchers, and cultural workers. It will take place on November 19 and 20, 2021.
Featuring keynote lectures from artist Amelia Winger-Bearskin, who innovates with technology to make a positive impact on her community and the environment, and Mashinka Firunts Hakopian, a scholar and curator exploring the intersections of algorithmic justice and visual art, Speculative Futures explores how artificial intelligence shapes political imaginaries of what is yet to come. The symposium will include a workshop on “Generative Prototyping and Art Making with Machines,” hosted by Pacific Northwest College of Art’s Make+Think+Code Center for Art and Technology, as well as an exhibition of art by graduate students.
The symposium is free and open to all. Register to attend.
