Artificial intelligence now produces compelling works of art, raising questions both metaphysical—does AI creativity raise it on par with the human?—and practical—how will we license its inputs and outputs? Will the creative outputs of AIs upend our conception of autonomy and personhood? Will they change our basic understandings of human intelligence and subjectivity? Two artists, an attorney, and a neuroscientist will grapple with these questions in a provocative conversation and demo.

Panelists include Jessica Fjeld (Clinical Instructor at Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic based at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society and a Lecturer on Law at HLS) and Sarah Newman (a Creative Researcher at Harvard's metaLAB and a Fellow at the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society).
