The aesthetics of learning machines
In the age of automation and machine learning, machines have gained the ability to learn and create, raising fundamental questions about aesthetics in this emerging context. The conference "The Aesthetics of Learning Machines" examines how contemporary machines affect artistic creation. We will discuss the ways in which machines can express themselves, interpret the world and generate unique aesthetic experiences. The conference will explore how machines learn from data, recognize patterns, and generate artistic content, such as paintings, music, and audiovisual works. We'll also look at how artists use machine learning techniques in their creative practice, tackling topics like human-machine collaboration and the ethical implications of AI in art.
