While NeurIPS has traditionally focused on topics such as machine learning, computer vision, and natural language processing, this year there is an exciting new addition: a creative AI track.
This track is an acknowledgment of the incredible progress made by generative models and the growing need for their use in creative pursuits. The track focuses on how AI can be used to create new forms of visual art, music, literature, performing arts, and more.
The creative AI track at the conference will offer a platform for computer scientists and artists who utilize AI programs to showcase their innovative and captivating work. Those interested in participating are invited to submit proposals by June 15, 2023, and will be considered for exclusive exhibit spaces. These spaces include hallway exhibits, designated spaces in the exhibit hall, screen time during breaks in the main conference room, as well as dedicated time and space during the reception and conference social events. Participants are strongly encouraged to create interactive exhibits that engage the public and to organize online events prior to or during the conference to welcome virtual attendees.
We are launching the creative AI track with a focus on celebrating diversity. The theme welcomes all forms of art, such as visual, language, musical, and performing arts, to highlight the wide range of perspectives within our community, including those based on gender, ethnicity, culture, affinity, and age. In addition, a social event will be organized to provide an opportunity for artists to meet and participate in a panel discussion to answer questions. Attendees will have the chance to engage in conversations and learn from experts.
With the addition of the creative AI track, the conference is paving the way for a future where AI is a powerful tool for creativity, enabling artists and creatives to explore new possibilities and create works of art that were previously impossible.
