CIC academics and MDSI students featured prominently at the UTS Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Creative Intelligence Unit’s creative clusters on “You + A.I” throughout the month of October.
The four-part creative cluster series kicked off on October 10 and ran weekly until October 31, 2017. In the first cluster, guests were introduced to A.I., its meaning and its uses. CIC representatives joined other UTS researchers, industry thought leaders and other amazing minds in the field of artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence (A.I.) is of course impacting almost every aspect of our lives. It is in our smartphones, our cars, our banks, our fitness trackers and our entertainment streaming platforms. It is being used to develop more efficient services in healthcare, education, finance, and transport. The creative cluster series considered both the exciting potential of A.I, along with concerns around mass unemployment, ethical breaches and the potential blurring of boundaries between the human and the machine.
