Activity: Participating in or organising an academic event › Participation in academic conference
The theme of the 2023 Taiwan Science, Technology & Society Association Annual Conference is “Rescaling the World”. The organisers invite researchers across disciplines to gather at the Taiwan Contemporary Culture Lab on September 2-3 to explore the keyword “scale” together. “Scale” is an indispensable aspect in our daily lives, government policies, capitalism expansion, engineering designs, and humanities and social science research. However, what is scale? What are the epistemological and ontological foundations of scale? What are the past, present, and future of scale? What is the most suitable scale for understanding the past, present, and future world? What insights can science and technology studies (STS) and the history of science bring to these questions?
I will be presenting a paper entitled 'Generative AI and Arts: practices, attitudes and responses from creative industries' which maps the current practices of using generative AI (e.g., ChatGPT, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion) in the creative arts industries and the responses (positive and negative, acceptance / resistance) from the artists and media practitioners so far.
