The Automated Culture Lab

20 October 2018, 11:00 - 12:00

Room S1, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road, Cambridge CB3 9DT

This event is part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas. Bookings will open at 11:00 on Monday 24 September 2018.

Recent developments in Machine Learning, and in particular advances in Generative Adversarial Networks, are allowing researchers to experiment with computer-generated literature, art and music. This interactive workshop explores the technology behind the rise of automated culture and proposes ways to better understand what the apparent incursion of machines onto the terrain of human creativity tells us about contemporary culture and society.

The workshop is led by Anne Alexander, Director, Learning Programme, Cambridge Digital Humanities.

Please note that this event might be photographed, recorded and/or filmed, and that the photographs, recordings and/or videos will be made available in all manner of media, including on the Internet.
