Workshop: Make Art with AI

Science Fiction Cave Painting
with Gary Boodhoo

October 26th @ GitHub San Francisco

Eventbrite - ART+TECH Festival [2018]

Learn to create digital collages using a neural network as a visual synthesizer. This hands-on workshop answers the question, “what is style?” by demonstrating how to transfer the style of one image to another.

Workshop attendees will focus on narratives and strategies for image style transfer by iteratively processing batches of images. For example, a self-portrait can be made to look like a Picasso. However, some outcomes raise more interesting questions than resemblance. The emphasis will be on finding your own voice with this technology.

CODAME invites you to share your favorite images with us for ongoing exhibition during the ART+TECH Festival 2019 『 SPACE 』 

 

TIME AND LOCATION

Saturday, Oct. 26th from 10am to 2pm as part of CODAME ART+TECH Festival 2019 『 SPACE 』

 

WORKSHOP OUTLINE

This is a 4-hour workshop including a brief overview of image synthesis, guided exercises, and self-directed explorations

  1. Generate unique and thought-provoking high definition (1080p) images

  2. Discover strategies to achieve controllable outcomes with your personal imagery
