Generator Makerspace

Created in collaboration with UVM’s Complex Systems Center and Champlain College’s MFA in Emergent Media, Reckless Ideas is a speaker series featuring a diverse mix of Burlington’s top thinkers and innovators at the intersection of design and science.

Featured speakers push disciplinary boundaries with topics including Artificial Intelligence and creativity, data privacy, and the tension between creativity and profit for entrepreneurs.

All lectures are free and open to the public at 7pm at Generator, 40 Sears Lane Burlington VT. Liquid libations and light snacks will be served.

October 15th - October 17th
ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center

During this intensive three-day short course, we will explore the nature of narratives, how to extract them from data, how they move through time and space, and how to preserve them through communication.


September 26, 2018 7pm
Generator Makerspace

Lisa Soros is an Assistant Professor in Computer Science and Innovation at Champlain College whose research focuses on open-ended and generative artificial evolutionary systems.

Designers have long incorporated technology into their creative processes to help speed up mechanical tasks and make it easier to focus on designing. This talk explores the roles artificial life and evolutionary algorithms can play in the design process and also considers the ways we use technology to understand ourselves and the world around us. Special attention will be given to how we can generate creative AI, how creative AI can complement human creativity, and how we can survive in a world where intelligent tools (such as deep learning systems) could potentially generate creative works with little to no human input.


September 5th - September 7th
ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center

During this intensive three-day transdisciplinary professional education short course, we will explore the newest research that is being used to tackle issues related to complexity in human behavioral health.
