AI Week: How to Think in the Third Millennium
AI Week at Betaworks Begins Monday, 11/28/22
Betaworks is hosting a week of events and discussions to explore the new creative frontiers opened up by generative AI. We’ve witnessed unprecedented developments in how artists and engineers are using generative AI to add creative agency to how we work and play. Over the course of 4 days we will be showcasing insights and projects from an exciting roster of builders and researchers.
About this Event:
Over the last two thousand years, text has inexplicably become the most ubiquitous and the least ergonomic user interface element in the world. We've moved from hand-scribed writing to software word processing, but the underlying material of knowledge is the same — a trail of cryptic characters, lined up next to each other.
Betaworks's very first Researcher in Residence, Linus Lee, has spent the last few months investigating and tinkering around the question of what a next step may look like. He'll walk us through a series of experiments and stories that poke at interesting futures, enabled by recent advances in ML, that may show glimpses into what it means to think in this third millennium.
Linus is a Research Engineer at Notion prototyping new software interfaces for augmenting our collaborative work and creativity with AI. He has spent the last few years experimenting with AI-augmented tools for thinking, like a canvas for exploring the latent space of neural networks and writing tools where ideas connect themselves. Before Notion, Linus spent a year as an independent researcher, during which he was Betaworks's first Researcher in Residence.
