In this fifth workshop, we will explore the influence of these complex mathematical formulas on the visual arts and their potential to both enhance and distort our understanding of reality. Beginning with a review on the history of visual media, this workshop will develop understandings of AI-generated visual media. From social media feeds through gaming and communications to search results, algorithms are at the heart of many modern technologies and systems, and their influence is only growing. Our webinar will also delve into the impact of AI-generation on authorship and manipulative information. Whether you're an educator, a librarian, a researcher, or simply curious about the impact of algorithms on our daily lives and the main stakeholders in their governance, join us for an engaging and thought-provoking discussion where you are invited not just be part of an audience, but an active participant and contributor to the exchange of knowledge and wisdom.
