Club house on Whitehall

The Artist in the Machine: The World of AI-Powered Creativity

Today’s machines have already shown glimpses of creativity in art, literature and music.

As AI develops, completely new forms of the arts - currently unimaginable - are bound to emerge; in our season of exploring AI and its uses, creativity and ethics our speaker – Prof Arthur I Miller - will explore this brave new world, probing questions such as: ‘Can and will computers be creators like us and even go beyond us? Will we have to rethink concepts like 'art' and 'creativity' and, if so, how?’ Prof Miller will discuss and debate all this and much, much more!

The narrative of The Artist in the Machine: The World of AI-Powered Creativity spins-off the hundred-odd interviews which Prof Miller carried-out with scientists on the cutting-edge of AI-created art, literature and music.

This book brings together and extends his work of over three decades on creativity in humans and creativity in machines; it is a tour of creativity in the age of machines.

Everyone attending this event will receive a signed first edition of Arthur’s The Artist in the Machine: The World of AI-Powered Creativity courtesy of the real Time Club.

Moreover, it is not a dystopian account nor an anthromorphisation of AI – rather it celebrates the creative possibilities of AI in the arts.

JOIN US at the Real Time Club on 15th October 2019 to hear from Prof Arthur I Miller, expert on AI and creativity, and to debate if AI can be truly creative, or is merely a vast, eclectic, happenstance of other human creativity – in the usual robust and rambunctious form of the Real Time Club.

About our speaker: Prof Arthur I Miller – Professor Emeritus of history and philosophy of science at University College London

ARTHUR I. MILLER is fascinated by the nature of creative thinking. He has published many critically acclaimed books, including Insights of Genius; Einstein, Picasso (shortlisted for a Pulitzer); Empire of the Stars (shortlisted for the Aventis Prize); and 137, and writes for the Guardian, The New York Times and Wired.

He is professor emeritus of history and philosophy of science at University College London.

An experienced broadcaster and lecturer, he has curated exhibitions on art/science and writes engagingly about complex social and intellectual dramas, weaving the personal with the scientific to produce thoroughly researched works that read like novels.

His previous book, Colliding Worlds: How Cutting-Edge Science is Redefining Contemporary Art (W.W. Norton), tells the story of how art, science and technology are fusing in the twenty-first century.                                                                                                                                                           _________________________________________________

Looking forward to seeing you, learning more and an inspiring evening of new information to pique our curiosity, robust debate, and enthralling conversations.

All good wishes,

Dr John L Collins
