Artificial Imagination – Opening ‘the Black Box’ of Inscrutable AI Through Dialogue

Quietly, one of the most forward-thinking art organizations in Canada, Ottawa’s Artengine offers an amorphous mix of event programming and special projects that forge links across disciplines and disparate topics. In recent years they’ve tackled smart cities, interactive public art, and the growing presence of digital fabrication in the arts (see CAN's recap of their excellent Unhanded event in 2016) – amongst other topics – and their events are some of the best we’ve attended in North America. So, it was with great anticipation we headed to Artificial Imagination, their symposium on the role of artificial intelligence in the arts this past winter. Given that most chatter about AI is as lucid as a fever dream at the moment, we were confident that Artengine would facilitate sober and prescient conversations on the topic – and true to form, they delivered. They recently published video documentation of their event, and, in an effort to share these noteworthy conversations with a wider audience, we share the videos and quick recap below.
