Lecture: Matias del Campo - Neural Architecture - Design and Artificial Intelligence
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us in the deSalle Auditorium for a free, public lecture from Visiting Professor and Author, Matias del Campo. Please enter the deSalle auditorium through the Cranbrook Academy of Art library entrance. The Cranbrook Art Museum galleries will be closed.
In his lecture, Neural Architecture – Design and Artificial Intelligence, Campo will provide an opportunity to survey the emerging field of Architecture and Artificial Intelligence, and to reflect on the implications of a world increasingly entangled in questions of the agency, culture, and ethics of AI. The main goal of Neural Architecture is to understand how to interrogate artificial intelligence–a technological tool–in the field of architectural design, traditionally a practice that combines humanities and visual arts. Matias del Campo, the author of Neural Architecture is currently exploring specific applications of artificial intelligence in contemporary architecture, focusing on their relationship to material and symbolic culture. AI has experienced explosive growth in recent years in a range of fields including architecture but its implications for the humanistic values that distinguish architecture from technology have yet to be measured.
