The SLAS Symposium on AI in the Arts and Humanities brings together visual artists, designers, scientists, and scholars to offer insight into the recent emergence of powerful AI technologies through creative disciplines. Through a daylong series of lectures, workshops, and performances, this symposium seeks to help guide the Pratt Institute’s community of artists, designers, architects, and educators towards building applications, policies, and ethics in relation to these emergent technologies.
