Can artificial intelligence have creative inspiration? Artificial Intelligence (AI) is developing at a dizzying pace, with computers slowly but surely able to approximate humans' artistic impulses. In cooperation with STRP – the festival operating at the intersection of technology and the arts – IFFR is organising an evening focusing on the questions AI art throws up. How is AI influencing the contemporary art world, and how will this develop? Can humans appreciate art made by AI in the same way? In short: how creative is artificial intelligence?

The panel discussion, moderated by Annemarie Wisse, will be supported by presentations from various speakers. Among them two directors with a film in IFFR's Bright Future section: Lawrence Lek (AIDOL) and Cécile B. Evans (A Screen Test for an Adaptation of Giselle). They will be joined by the artist duo Arvid&Marie and professor Wijnand IJsselsteijn, who studies the interaction between man and machine at the Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences faculty at Eindhoven University of Technology.
