I am pleased to announce the two-day online workshop on “Agency, Life, and Creativity” . Registration is free of charge and everybody is invited to participate. The workshop is funded by the Karst Stiftung, University of Konstanz and organised by Dr. Caterina Moruzzi, Department of Philosophy, University of Konstanz.
18-19 February 2022
Online, on the platform Zoom. To register, please contact the organiser at [email protected]
This workshop brings together experts from different disciplines - philosophy, computer science, and the arts - who share an interest for one or more of the notions of agency, life, and creativity. Its aim is that of discussing the reciprocal influence that these notions have on one another when we attribute them to natural or artificial systems. Talks have been grouped under four main titles: `The Nature of Creativity', `New Paradigms of Creativity', `Life and Learning in Artificial Agents', and `Artificial Agents and Scientific Discoveries'. The influence of the questions asked during each presentation, however, extends beyond its own section, to involve cross-disciplinary and cross-thematic discussions on the nature of agency, life, and creativity, and their implementation in artificial systems.
