Radio-Television-Film Associate Professor Suzanne Scott will moderate the discussion.

BAD AI AND BEYOND FESTIVAL
OF SCHOLARSHIP & CREATIVE WORK

Bringing together academics and industry experts in artificial intelligence, literature and media studies, and game design, the Bad AI and Beyond Festival invites dialogue on how media representations have shaped public perceptions of artificial intelligence, and how a new generation of creatives find innovative ways to represent AI and its impact on society.

The two-day program will introduce faculty research into how we understand AI, and showcase student fictional and non-fictional accounts—through video, prose, and even poetry—of the social impact of AI. Also premiering at the fest will be a student-built computer game, Buddi-Bot, that dramatizes the introduction of AI into everyday life.


Festival sponsored by Good Systems, a UT Grand Challenge.
Hosted by Samuel Baker, Associate Professor of English and Good Systems Executive Team Member; Suzanne Scott, Associate Professor of Radio-Television-Film; and Paul Toprac, Professor of Instruction in Computer Science.
