Would it be possible for a machine to paint, compose music, or write a novel? Can we envision a day when a machine might aspire to replace Mozart, Shakespeare or Rembrandt, or perhaps compete with them? Until recently, it was generally agreed that things like creating works of art and solving the world’s problems were abilities that differentiated humans as a species. Yet, scientists have already invented sophisticated machines that can outperform us in a range of fields. 

 

The renowned popular English scientist Marcus du Sautoy will speak about creative experiences with artificial intelligence; about how computers write love letters, and how machines manage to defeat humans at board games. With an optimistic, innovative vision of how we relate to machines, Du Sautoy will invite us to reconsider the essence of human creativity.
