In recent years, new AI technologies have increasingly been incorporated into fascinating artistic projects. The ability of AI to explore new, previously unknown perspectives of data certainly seems to enable new areas of artistic creation. But it also raises questions about possible forms of collaboration between AI and human artists. Intention plays a great role in the creative process. But how can artistic intention be communicated with an AI system? How does the degree of autonomy of an AI system affect human-AI collaboration? Are less autonomous AI systems better suited for artistic tasks because they give humans more freedom?

In collaboration with Ars Electronica in Linz, this panel invites Japanese sound artist Yuri Suzuki, Mexican-Canadian interdisciplinary artist and producer Isabella Salas, and digital culture researcher and writer Maya Indira Ganesh to critically investigate the question of autonomy and human intention in the creative application of Artificial Intelligence. The panel is hosted by Ali Nikrang, key researcher and artist at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, and is the first of two joint sessions on this topic between the Austrian festival and MUTEK in Montréal.

Presented in collaboration with Ars Electronica Futurelab.
