Deep Learning for Art, Aesthetics, and Creativity
This course offers both concepts and technical aspects of design of AI in the domains of arts and visual design. We will cover state-of-the-art research in using neural networks, generative models, visualization, and network interpretability for art, design, and aesthetics. Applications will cover topics that can potentially flourish students’ artistic creativity, including, prediction of aesthetics rating of images, neuro-style transfer, fashion, and analysis/synthesis of collateral design, infographics, web design, and photos. We will also have speakers who can share their research on related topics. This course is designed for those who have some knowledge about deep learning and would like to obtain perspective in how to think creatively and apply AI to new problems in art and creativity.
