For some years now, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has acquired a symbiosis in our society. Its influence on our lives is undeniable in a multitude of areas and sectors such as health, transportation, energy, agriculture, tourism, e-commerce, banking and public administration. In all of them, use is made of automated systems that, through data collection, facilitate decision-making.
Besides these tasks, AI is currently ready for text, music, or image generation. Nevertheless, when it comes to tasks that have always been inherently associated with human artistic qualities, such as “inspiration” o “soul”, can an AI really be creative? Will the next “Don Quijote” be written by an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system? How creative are data-fed machines at the moment and when will they reach their full potential?
In the new episode of the series Arqus Knowledge Pills “Artificial Intelligence in the XXI century: a boost in creativity and digital art”, Alberto Fernández from the University of Granada, explains how to foster creativity in Artificial Intelligence, what amazing things they are already capable of and how we should deal with the enormous possibilities that Artificial Intelligence offers today, and in the near future. In the podcast, Alberto also talks about his interests in reading a novel or listening to a song that was not devised by a human being, and whether his research work has made him more creative in his everyday life.
Alberto Fernández is Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Granada (UGR). He was one of the organisers of the successful Research Focus Forum on Artificial Intelligence that was hosted by the School of Computer Engineering and Telecommunications (ETSIIT) of the UGR from the 26th to 28th September 2022. This international event gathered more than 70 researchers in fields related to AI and its applications from all Arqus universities. Artificial Intelligence is also, together with climate change and European identity, one of the three major interdisciplinary challenges as priority areas for the Alliance’s joint actions in the future, through the Arqus Living Labs.
The episodes of the “Arqus Knowledge Pills” are published on a regular basis and can be subscribed to on Spotify, anchor and other platforms (see below). Gerhild Leljak (University of Graz) and Pietro Osti (University of Padua) are the moderators that lead listeners through each episode.
