Meeting: Ziegler Reception Room

Join local author and AI expert, Karen Kilroy, and explore the future for creative content now that artificial intelligence has entered the chat.

The ease of sharing digital media has made it challenging for artists, musicians, writers and other creatives to be paid fairly for their work. Lately, the problem has compounded because creative content is being absorbed into artificial intelligence (AI) models. This means that anyone can create similar content, without any attribution or royalties for the original content owner. For example, you can use one of the popular image creators like DALL-E and instruct it to paint a picture of how Sigmund Freud might envision social media, in a style similar to Jean-Michel Basquiat. While intriguing, fakes like these dilute brands, devalue work, and create confusion.

In this workshop, we will explore how blockchain can be used to protect content creator rights, how AI systems could be designed to rely on blockchain controls, and how artists could audit content usage using blockchain. 

Registration encouraged.
