The Artists guide to the Deep Learning Galaxy (for any level of experience)

A workshop from EMF 2016 by KRN & MX & OLF

On Friday August 5, 2016 at in Workshop 2

The brain inspired deep learning algorithms have been a huge success in recent years for major challenges of Artificial Intelligence leading to systems that predict cancer, galaxies, weather, generate poetry or gene sequences. But also made an impact in the art community, when tools for generated art came up first in 2014. To the effect of exhibitions of solely computer generated art.

In this workshop, we introduce the attendees to the galaxy of deep learning while not requiring any specific skills in math or programming (about 20-30min). After that, we got plenty of time to get our own hands dirty with a small project in the same field of computer generated images (about 1.5-2h).
