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.
