This event is part of the FutureFest Forward series leading up to and from FutureFest. The series will be exploring Artificial Intelligence and how we can start to see, feel and grapple with what it could mean for our daily lives.

Coinciding with London Tech Week, this event is specifically designed for academics, artists, product designers, technologists and funders interested in exploring the relationship between human creator and creative technologies.

Is the artist of tomorrow an AI itself with its own outputs and presentations, or are we engaging from now onwards in a time of exciting creative collaborations and conversations with machine learning? Will artists set up the pattern definitions and allow the AI to create the flow? Can AI enable all of us to expand our creativity through “augmenting” ourselves?

Registration opens at 17.30 with the event starting promptly at 18.00. The event is followed by networking drinks until 20.30.

Curated by Ghislaine Boddington, Creative Director of body>data>space - an interactive design collective based in East London with a focus on body responsive technologies, virtual physical networks, interactive interfaces, user centred experiences and future collaborative share spaces. Ghislaine is a Reader in Digital Immersion at University of Greenwich and a co-curator of FutureFest.
