Artificial Intelligence, persuasive algorithms, and automated creativity

Computers are learning to drive cars, they beat us at Jeopardy, and they increasingly serve as our virtual assistants. But are algorithms also going to write chart breakers, create movies, and develop engaging advertising campaigns? To what extent can creativity be automated – and what would that mean for our notion of creativity?

In this public event a panel of academic and industry representatives looks at how the creative industries are going to be disrupted by intelligent machines.

Speakers include Dr Sven Brodmerkel: Bond University; Dr David Tuffley; Griffith University; Dr Jon McCormack: Monash University; and Damien Hughes; half machine.

Hosted by Paul Barclay and recorded by ABC RN Big Ideas Program.
