The Art of Seeing in the Digital Age: Aesthetics at the Intersection of Art and Science
Tuesday, May 10, 4:00-5:00 pm, Music Room
Emily L. Spratt, Director and Co-Founder of the Program in Art and Artificial Intelligence and Visiting Lecturer, Department of Art History, Rutgers University
This presentation will explore the use of vision technology for the analysis of art and its philosophical implications for both aesthetic theory and artificial intelligence. Now that computers have the capacity to see at an intelligent level, we as a society are faced with the ethical responsibility of directing the machine's gaze and telling it how to interpret its visual input. Utilizing old and new methodologies in the history of art, philosophy, and neuroscience that challenge the basis of our understanding of human visual perception itself, it will be demonstrated that the art of seeing in the digital age has everything to do with the historical underpinnings of the fundamental ties between the arts and sciences.
