Fraiday 4: AI & Creativity

 

Fraiday is the monthly meet-up for professionals who are AI-curious. We have a simple format: involving beers, a theme, lively debate and a group picture.

This location of Fraiday #4 was spectacular in many ways. Our friends at Osudio were kind enough to lend us their office, including the rooftop terrace. And as you can see in this exclusive behind the scenes footage Jim went trough quite some trouble to take the group picture. Now there’s someone who is not afraid to loose his job!

The theme this month was “AI & Creativity” and we invited Erik van der Pluijm to introduce this subject. Erik is the creative director at 30x and the co-author of the best selling book “Design a better business”. Erik did a great job of asking questions (How creative can a machine get? What is the future of value?) and answering some of them.

After Eriks’ talk everybody went to the rooftop terrace to discuss the subjects in groups of three. The assignment was to complete the following sentence “A computer will never ….” If you visit our Facebook Page you can some of the results. Let’s conclude this blogpost with some of the answers.

If computers will become more and more creative, we should become extremely random. If we will be random the AI will not understand us. If we are not random they will control us.

Computers will never recreate the universe.

Computers will never… know love.

Computers will never… have original thoughts. Humans will always make the difference.

Computers will never… understand spirituality. They have a problem with emotions.

Computers can know only what we know.

And the last quote by Maarten:

Computers will never… have juicy sex.

Agree? Disagree? Make sure to join us for the next Fraiday event!
