The art of artificial intelligence
Students have been finding out how artificial intelligence (AI) can unlock their creativity.
Tim Rogers, the founder of Future Transformation, came into college on 31 October to give a talk on Astro Art.
Tim worked with the college earlier this year, when we hosted Keighley’s first ever TEDx talk. This time he was here to show Alternative Provision learners how they could use AI software to generate their own artwork.
Course leader for Alternative Provision, Philip Hartley, said: “The different cohorts of learners really enjoyed the session.
“Some ended up not actually creating any art as they were so engrossed in their discussion on AI, and the implications of it for modern life!”
A really positive adventure
He added: “But another group of pre-16 students enjoyed the adventure of creating images and altering them using different layers of AI.
“They created many different ideas that we look forward to sharing in the near future.
“Overall, this was a really positive experience for all who took part and we’re hoping to welcome Future Transformation back for another session.”
Future Transformation, which runs the TEDx talks, is a social enterprise that provides awareness, opportunities and programmes for people who want to get into technology.
