Improvisation is the highest form of human intelligence. Would you improvise with a robot?
Over the past decades, an increasing number of performing artists and technologists have brought robots to the centre stage in their performances. AI has taken roles such as comedy improvisers, storytellers, actors, dancers, and choreographers, disrupting the traditional two-way human actor-human audience interaction. By presenting this talk, we try to challenge the idea that live performance is a specifically human activity and explore different forms of human-AI interactions in the theatre. What story does AI tell? What emotions can it generate? Do you think artificial intelligence can create an enjoyable theatre script? Can a robot become a playwright? Does the perfect theatre evening exist, produced by an autonomous machine?
The talk invites you to learn more about the collaboration between AI and theatre with artists and AI experts Piotr Mirowski (DeepMind, Improbotics), Marcel Karnapke (CyberRäuber) and Rudolf Rosa (theatre). The virtual event will be chaired by Tracy Harwood, Professor of Digital Culture at the De Montfort University and director of the award-winning Art AI Festival.
