AI and art: A panel discussion at Cooper Union

Why stress out over your art and — who knows — maybe even cut off your ear in torment? Why not just push a button…and, well, let AI do it?…

ChatGPT. GitHub. DALL-E. Midjourney. The list of generative AI tools continues to grow and to be used by an increasingly varied audience. The creative arts are among the fields seeing both benefits and challenges from the use of these tools, stirring discussion on what it means to be an artist. Join the discussion as IEEE TechEthics hosts a public panel session addressing the ways in which AI is impacting the artistic process and how it may be putting into question the way society views art.

The Cooper Union will hold a free panel discussion, “ARTificial Intelligence: How AI Tools Are Impacting the Arts,” on Wed., Jan. 24, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., at 41 Cooper Square (Third Avenue between Sixth and Seventh Streets).

Panelists include Ahmed Elgammal (Rutgers University), Anna Gressel (Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP), Carla Gannis (New York University) and Dan Navarro (SAG-AFTRA). IEEE’s Mark A. Vasquez, a Cooper Union engineering graduate, Class of ’88, moderates.

The in-person option for this event is currently at capacity. The event will also be live-streamed. Registration is required.
