The role of AI in Creative and Cultural Industries
22 Sept, 5.30 – 7pm
Will AI change what we wear, what we are seeing on TV, what books we read? Join us to explore in conversation with our expert panel.
We are seeing an exponential rise of AI in our everyday lives – from the use of our data by social media, to the algorithms working out what we buy, how we vote and what we eat. What is much less known, is that AI is increasingly underpinning cultural and creative sphere of our lives. As in all other sectors, the use of AI is leading to new and exciting opportunities, but also bringing new challenges. During this event we will hear from a panel of experts about the use of AI in fashion, beauty, broadcasting, arts, and heritage, and how this might impact our lives, and possibly our identity in the years to come.
