A symposium on artificial intelligence (AI) and the arts and humanities to take place March 21st and 22nd of 2024 here at Iowa State University. The symposium is part of a larger, University-wide strategic initiative on AI and the humanities and advances the hypothesis that building machines that act like people is a quintessentially humanistic and creative endeavor. The symposium draws together international experts on AI and the arts and humanities from a broad range of disciplines to inspire conversations and new collaborations in research and teaching.
In conjunction with the Faculty Senate’s symposium on AI on March 21st, 2024, the first afternoon of this symposium focuses on pedagogy in the arts and humanities. The following day, March 22nd, 2024, focuses on the broad range of prior work and future opportunities for research in AI within the arts and humanities.
While the symposium focuses specifically on the arts and humanities, organizers remain true to the historical origins of AI as a research field in welcoming scholars from all fields to attend.
