Creativity in the Age of AI

A video screening and talk on the role of human creativity in a design world that’s increasingly enmeshed with machines.
In just a few short months, generative AI platforms have taken the world by storm, leading a technological and design revolution that promises new ways of creating. These autonomous systems challenge our own imaginations and creativity, leaving us to question how we got here, and more importantly, where we might be headed in the future.
About the event
This is the second event in SPACE10’s series Navigating AI, which explores AI as a tool for becoming better designers, thinkers, and creators.
We will present a short video, Creativity in the Age of AI, created with Áron Filkey and Joss Fong using AI models. The video travels back through history to understand how the adoption and adaptation of tech innovations have improved everyday life.
Joss and Áron will talk about why we have mixed feelings about generative AI. They will explore the pros and cons of this tool, from how it contributed to the making of the video, to concerns surrounding the technology.
The evening will conclude with a conversation between SPACE10’s Playful Research team, Alexandra Zenner, Georgina McDonald, and Ryan Sherman, together with Joss and Áron. They will discuss the evolution of AI: how we got here and where we are headed, AI’s growing role in the creative process, and what the history of creative tools can teach us about the future.
