Session Outline

Generative AI and the theatre stage. Artists and machines engaging in co-creation. Creativity arises when different ideas and mindsets meet. In my talk, I will cover the subject of AI as a creative partner and as a partner for creativity, showing how theatre and film industry professionals can derive value from generative AI tools. I will illustrate the talk with an example of a theater company that has leveraged generative AI since 2016, as well as research at Google DeepMind in generative AI. The talk will also cover the ethical and organisational lessons that can be of value to academics and industry leaders alike.
