Artful Antics and Astounding Artistry Amidst an Age of Automated Aesthetics: Whirling Works of Wonder in the Whimsical World of Wired Wonders” (title provided by ChatGPT with some nudging)

Beyond near-term hype, as AI increasingly penetrates cultural realms like art, urgent questions arise around human creativity versus artificial generation. This lecture traverses philosophical tensions from Cybernetics to Marxism to Silicon Valley god-complexes shaping our AI future, as well as considering aura, human dignity, and the limits of technology.

After the talk will be a Q&A session and a small gathering.

The talk will be recorded and posted on Ryder’s podcast: Let Us THiNK About It
