November 10 Conversations in the Gallery:  Copying and Creativity in Human and Machine Learning

What is the connection between copying and invention? How does the practice of copying an artist’s work increase a drawing student’s own creativity? How do computers look at works of art to learn how to emulate a particular artist’s style? Consider these questions along with Raj Rao Nadakuditi, Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computers; Jeff Evans, Clinical Associate Professor Emeritus of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Medical School and scholar of the psychology of creativity; and Natsu Oyobe, UMMA Curator of Asian Art.
