NISTH Roundtable - Machines, Intelligence and Creativity

 

Artificial Intelligence and Robotics will soon permeate every domain in our society and every aspect in our daily life, bringing new relationships between humans and technology. This roundtable, involving speakers from the arts, sciences and those involved in building bridges between the traditionally distinct worlds, will explore how the power of machines might challenge human activities in the near future, particularly as they relate to human creativity. What is unique about the human domain of creativity? How can science and technology enhance creativity? Can machines themselves be creative?
