Creative Misuse of A.I. with Eryk Salvaggio

Big Ideas: Creative Misuse of A.I. with Eryk Salvaggio

Facebook Event Page

Can you use AI to resist AI? The artist Eryk Salvaggio describes his engagement with AI from the perspective of “creative misuse,” pushing AI image and sound tools to move beyond often exploitative datasets to critique surveillance capitalism. How can artists use and critique technology at the same time? How do we make sense of the messy entanglements between culture, surveillance and labour at the heart of AI? Salvaggio presents a short history of algorithmic resistance in the creative arts, culminating in an A/V performance from his critical-AI musical project, The Organizing Committee.
