AI Arts Festival 2024

Join artists and musicians from the University of Southampton, the Winchester School of Art and around the world to explore how AI and the arts are coming together in media from photography, fashion and literature to comedy and jazz, in a festival of installations, demonstrations, comedy sets, readings and discussions.

The festival is excited to welcome special guests the ORCHESTRE NATIONAL DE JAZZ – to perform an exploration of improvisations between instrumentalists and a machine within a large jazz orchestra.

The interactive all-day event is open to the public and will showcase the ways in which the University of Southampton is using the convergence of AI and the arts to explore crucial questions around how we are going to live responsibly and in harmony with powerful machines unleashed by revolutions in computing power and machine learning.

Is AI just a new chapter in the long story of humans living with machines? Or is it a new, threatening reality? Come along and find out for yourself.

The festival culminates with a lively panel discussion into these questions, featuring Dame Wendy Hall, BBC technology journalist Bill Thompson and other special guests. Followed by a late-night standup comedy set all about AI, from fantastic local comedians.
