About the talk:

Digital spaces are transforming into new platforms for cultural and artistic endeavors. With the global surge in digital content in virtual worlds, the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in creating digital cultural content is becoming increasingly prominent. This shift poses a question: will AI’s role in creation become the future of culture and art? However, true culture and art thrive on creativity, not passively consuming machine-made products. In the AI era, redefining creative cultural and artistic activities is crucial. Humanities, fostering insight, creativity, and empathy, are vital. They should actively guide AI, leading to a more creative expression of the human spirit through AI collaboration. This presentation introduces ‘Digital Curation of Humanities Data’ as a methodology for humanities research and education in the digital era, showcasing how to harmoniously blend AI with humanistic values in cultural and artistic pursuits.

Speaker Bio:

Warm regards,
