The combination of Art and Artificial intelligence seems highly unlikely and until recently these 2 only existed in completely different spheres. What can be in common between Art and Algorithms based on data sets? Surprisingly, both can contribute and bring different perspectives, knowledge and understanding.
In this cross-discipline Session we bring together Digital artists, professors in data science, heritage, the arts, and archeology to discuss the recent advances and future perspective of application of AI in Arts.
Topics of discussion will include:
- AI application in archeology
- Machine intelligence in art pieces analysis
- Aerial imagery
- HR/AR of urban space
- AI in Ancient language analysis
- Digital archives for museums
