About ISCMA 2019

Art Machines: International Symposium on Computational Media Art will take place from 4th -7th January 2019 at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. ‘Art Machines,’ will bring together Academics, Artists and Professionals in the field of Computational Media Art in a four-day symposium whose core theme will be the topic of Machine Learning and Art.

This agenda-setting Symposium will provide an opportunity for in depth reflection upon and assessment of the impact of artificial intelligence on the making of computational art and media, as well as to reflect more broadly on the conditions of existence, range, and futures of computationally based art and media. In addition to the academic keynotes, panels and discussion forums the conference will include the presentation of artistic projects, a major concurrent exhibition on Asian Digital Art and a student-led Workshop.


Summer Workshop: Machine Learning for Creative Media by Gene Kogan

This week-long workshop is designed to encourage creative professionals in design, art, and related disciplines to apply AI technologies to their practice and reflect on their broader cultural impact. It will consist of a step-by-step introduction to machine learning and its futures for creative media practitioners. The workshop will also appeal to members of the public who are not designers or artists but who would like to learn about these important technologies.
