Human vs Machine: The Great Creativity Wars

In the age of artificial intelligence and machine learning, there is a growing concern that machines may one day replace human creativity. While machines are becoming increasingly adept at producing advertising creative, art, music and more, there are those who argue that there is still something uniquely human about the creative process.

This session will bring together experts from the fields of academia, technology and creativity to explore the question: Can machines truly replicate the creative process of a human being, or is there something that sets human creativity apart?

The session will interrogate topics such as:

* The nature of creativity and what it means to be creative
* The strengths and limitations of machines and humans when it comes to creativity
* The role of emotion and intuition in the creative process
* The potential consequences of a future in which machines are the primary creators of advertising, art and music

Is AI the Next Gen of Storytelling?

TUE, OCT 17, 2:00 PM
For millennia, humans have told stories - from oral histories about where we came from, to art as an expression of our identities and culture. Now, with the rapid development of generative AI and its ability to generate realistic images, videos, music, and even novels, is the next generation of storytelling being led by machines? Join us to discuss how AI is changing the way humans tell our stories and how we report tomorrow’s news and the future of art. This panel is for storytellers, technologists, or anyone simply curious about the evolving landscape of AI.
