:::: 28/02 - Les Mardis de l'innovation, in partnership with the Ecole nationale supérieure des arts appliqués et des métiers d'art (ENS AAMA, Paris), is organizing a conference on February 28, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, on the theme "What is the place of the individual in creation today? »
The abundance of data, software and algorithms and the breakthrough of "artificial intelligence" can be seen as part of an evolution towards automated, logical and predefined design, with less human intervention.
Moreover, "collective intelligence", the combination of contributions from multiple individuals could lead to a creation in which it would become increasingly difficult to identify the contribution of each individual.
However, this is not what we observe, the role of a clearly identified individual: creator, designer, artist, designer... remains decisive in the creative synthesis and conception of the new, not only at the level of shaping, but also in the intention and vision associated with it, as varied as human passions.
Journey to the heart of the creative act with thinkers and actors-directors of creation, particularly in the field of the plastic arts.
