Design in the Age of AI
Over the past couple of years, there has been increased interest in applying the latest advances in artificial intelligence to the creative domains of art and design.
From turning photos into impressionist paintings to generating optimised chair designs, machine learning and related technologies have been used for experimental and commercial projects in graphic design, advertising, architecture and beyond.
This talk will give an overview of the recent design projects incorporating machine learning and will suggest some future scenarios as this technology develops.
