SXSW 2019

Who’ll Win the Battle Between AI and Creativity?


Will artificial intelligence soon be able to do a creative person’s job? Can an AI write, paint, draw, compose music and edit film as well as a trained professional? Will what many creative people have spent years mastering be effortlessly taken over by machines in the near future?

On the one hand, you can argue that art is in the author’s intention and today’s AI just can’t compete with that.

On the other, why couldn't an algorithm learn the rules and intuition needed for creativity? Adobe Sensei and Google’s AI already have.

Two experts on the subject, both with a great passion for AI but with radically opposing views on how it will affect creativity, battle it out on stage.
