Spotlight Stage SPL21

Playful Machine Learning - with Andreas Refsgaard

Date Thursday, Dec 6  Time   –    Room Potsdam III

In his talk on the Spotlight Stage, interaction designer, artist and teacher Andreas Refsgaard describes how machine learning has become an integrated part of his personal practise and curriculum for teaching designers and artists about digital interactions. By enabling people to decide upon and train their own unique controls for a system, the creative power shifts from the designer of the system to the person interacting with it.

Using machine learning to make unconventional connections between inputs and outputs Andreas and his students have made projects where games are controlled by making silly sounds, music is composed by drawing instruments on paper and algorithms are trained to decide what is funny, funky or boring.
