キーノートセッション

We are now living at a time when dramatic changes and developments are underway, perhaps at the cusp of a shift to new relationships between humans and technology. This keynote session, involving speakers from the arts, sciences and those involved in building bridges between the traditionally distinct worlds, will explore how the power of computers and robots might challenge human activities in the near future, particularly as they relate to human creativity. During the session, the participants will seek to address some key questions around relationships between arts, science, technology and creativity. For instance: What is unique about the human domain of art and creativity? How is creativity in art and in science related? How can science and technology enhance creativity? Can machines themselves be creative? How important are emotions and sensory perceptions in the creative process?
