The Studio for Creative AI (SCAI) invites you to attend a salon discussion on the question of machine learning and creative practice in conjunction with The Catalyst. Join our guests for a wide-ranging discussion on how the advent of recent machine learning tools bring forth new dimensions of creativity and expression? What is possible, or even desirable, with these new techniques? How can artists guide their use and application?
