The Future of AI in the Arts

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.
