By Prof Takashi Ikegami
October 3, 2017
Can a robot produce art? Join us for an eye-opening talk on developing the world’s first android-led opera “Scary Beauty”, performed by Skeleton of Osaka University’s Ishiguro Lab, and consider the deeper implications and future possibilities for artificial intelligence, or AI, in the arts.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of the robotics discussed in this talk, we are unable to provide a robot demonstration at this event.
Part of our Human Meets Robot talk event series, running from September 21 to November 2, 2017.
This event has ended.
