    With many countries in lockdown due to the global pandemic, in this episode we reflect on how much things have changed over the last few months. How will work and education change now that many people are spending so much time on-line? Working at home is now the norm and many people are questioning if we should ever return to the traditional workplace. What is lost or gained when so many aspects of human relationships turn virtual? And how will all this change creative AI research? Join our team as they reflect on a new, post-pandemic world.

  • Creative AI Podcast Episode 16: GPT-2 1.5B

    Creative AI Podcast Episode 16: GPT-2 1.5B

    24/11/2019 Duração: 44min

    This week we discuss the release of the 1.5 billion parameter model of the GPT-2 neural network. Released by OpenAI, the GPT-2 is a language model trained to predict the next word in 40GB of Internet text. While it's been around for some time in scaled-back forms, the release of the full model was previously considered "too dangerous" for the Internet. Why the change? Listen in as we discuss the implications of "big AI", where the resources to train very large models are beyond what most individuals or even universities can afford. And what about the energy costs for all those GPUs/TPUs computing away a gradient descent for weeks or months on end? Should there be a "training shame" (utbildningskam in Swedish) for big, energy hungry models?

  • Creative AI Podcast Episode 1: GAN Art

    Creative AI Podcast Episode 1: GAN Art

    15/03/2019 Duração: 24min

    The Creative AI group at SensiLab meets every week to talk about our research topics. These meetings often turn into discussions on various aspects of Creative AI. News, events, history and opinions are raised and debated. Starting this week we have begun recording highlights of this discussion in the hope that it sparks some input from the wider community. This week we talked about about AI Art, Auctions and Authorship. Late last year members of the ai.SensiLab team wrote a paper for the 2019 EvoMUSART conference on Autonomy, Authenticity, Authorship and Intention in computer generated art. The paper frames the current discussion around AI Art, driven largely by the Christies Auction last year, in the context of more than fifty years of debate, concern and excitment around these issues. The podcast provides a casual and subjective introduction to different topics in Creative AI and we encourage anyone who listens to reach out through twitter or email to add their thoughts.
