From AI-generated art and literature to digital scripting and beyond, this conference will offer new insights, open debates, and explore AI and its impact on the creative landscape.

With an impressive lineup of panels covering AI Art, AI Text, AI Video, AI Theory, AI Practice, and AI Marketing and Music, attendees can engage with cutting-edge research and innovative practices.
