Can AI Replace Creativity?

Creativity has been an attribute that we humans have enjoyed exclusively, and is what makes us proud to be ‘only human’. The emotional expressions, our vulnerability, passion and empathy that we then are able to put into a canvas, a song or a book.

The advancement of tech brings about Artificial Intelligence, which in addition to all the benefits it could bring, also attacks this sacred element of what it means to be humans. After all, aren’t robots supposed to be perfect? This elicits profound discussions on societal implications and is bound to make us ask some deep questions, such as: Can AI be creative?

Come and join us for the next AI Society Event and join the discussion!

Agenda includes:
  • Examples of AI being used to replace creativity
  • Key elements of a creative Robot
  • Panel discussion "Origin and End of creativity"
    • Defining creativity
    • Can computers be creative
    • Future outlook
Who should attend? Anyone interested in the concept of AI and their implications
