The term "automated renaissance" embodies a new way of thinking, designing, and working that highlights the interplay between automated technologies and the arts. Many skeptics worry that technological advancements in creative fields, from automated journalism to filtered photo editing, are rendering artistic employees obsolete because it seems as if our finesse, our perspective, and our labor aren't exactly necessary anymore. One could argue that art, design and journalism are the industries most at risk, but these core areas still require a human touch. Creative fields still thrive off of something humans provide that robots cannot--aesthetics, personal taste, and an understanding of what people really want. Technology should not be viewed as competition but instead appreciated as a platform that is enabling and enhancing creation. In this session, Zohar Dayan will define his vision of the automated renaissance, offer specific examples of how automated technologies are revolutionizing journalism, photography and art, and explain why human empathy will always be at the forefront of these industries no matter what.
