Open Lab Abend: 'Neural Explorations' - discovering AI-art
'Neural Explorations' is a two-part workshop directed at the general public with an interest in creative techniques using Machine Learning. The aim of the workshop is having fun while exploring different techniques for image generation, text generation and object detection using different examples of Deep Neural Networks.
All tools and code repositories will be user-friendly and no coding experience is required. We will be using Google Colab so it is advised to have a Google account, although most tools will run on the browser, there might be some space for experimental time using Runway ML between both sessions, in which we will explain how to proceed with the installation.
After the first session, there will be an optional assignment with online follow up/ assistance, where everyone is encouraged to participate and share their progress. At the end of the second session, the participants will print and assemble a small in-house exhibit of the generated pieces.
Who can participate?
Everybody with an interest in machine learning. No coding experience required.
What do you need?
You need a laptop, mouse and Google account.
Sofia Crespo is an artist working with Bio inspired technologies. Her main focus is the way organic life uses artificial mechanisms to simulate itself and evolve, this implying the idea that technologies are a biased product of the organic life that created them and not a completely separated object. She is also hugely concerned with the dynamic change in the role of the artists working with machine learning techniques.
Attention: this workshop will take place on two evenings
