What’s next for artificial intelligence? Well, for now, it might be AI creating its own content. Generative adversarial networks - or GANs - are a new innovation that allows an AI to produce its own content. Humans can use AI to generate a list of possible brand names, a fictional story, an original work of art, or even a totally new human face. But who is really the creator? You, the AI, or the AI developer? And what happens when the tech is used to write fake news stories or create malicious deepfake videos? It’s important that students understand both the potential opportunities and impacts of using this new technology. By attending this session, educators will learn more about generative AI, its impacts, and how their students can harness their creativity to train and use GANs to support their own media creations!
1. What is AI? What are GANs? (10 minutes) 2. What can AI do? Experimenting with generative AI tools to create art, music, images, and text. Examples of AI tools to be explored: Transformer/GPT-2, Deep Dream Generator, Prisma, DeepArt.io, Sway: Magic Dance, thispersondoesnotexist.com, Sketch-RNN, AI Duet, MuseNet, and AIartists.org. Attendees will consider curriculum integration entry points, cross-curricular applications, and student-created media potential. (60 minutes). 3. Potential opportunities and societal impacts of generative AI. (10 minutes) 4. Resources, Q&A, and next steps (10 minutes)
