Workshop: Machine Learning for Artists

New York Live Arts Conference Rooms
May 12 at 11 AM – 1:00 PM
$20; $25

This hands-on workshop demystifies machine learning and explores how machine learning tools have been and can be used for artistic expression. Participants will learn about the concept of machine learning, its history and critical issues, examples of art projects that use ML, and explore resources that allow them to continue experimenting with ML on their own. This is open to artists by any definition. No pre-requisites or prior knowledge is required.
If possible, participants should bring a computer (we will be interacting with and creating some online examples), but are still welcome to attend/observe without one.

This workshop is heavily inspired by Gene Kogan’s work on ml4a:
