The 2024 Art in Silico computational art event series will feature an exciting collaboration with the University of Ottawa, including a keynote address and virtual panel discussion next Wednesday (April 3).

Keynote Address
The keynote address will be given by Chantal Rodier, STEAM project coordinator and artist in residence at the University of Ottawa, at 5 p.m. in GLRC 202.

Rodier’s keynote, titled “Generative AI breaking artistic and programming barriers,” will discuss the role of generative artificial intelligence in computational art, with commentary on how this revolutionary and rapidly evolving technology will allow more individuals to participate in art and coding than ever before. She will also give a brief synopsis of her research and background.

Student Panel Discussion
Earlier in the day, select Michigan Tech students who submitted their work to the Art in Silico exhibition will be part of a virtual panel discussion with four University of Ottawa students who also prepared submissions. The panel members will discuss each work, covering the inspiration and process, as well as converse on computational art as a whole. The event will take place on Zoom from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

More information, including Zoom links and Google Calendar invites, can be found on the Art in Silico website.
