Tech Week: AI and creativity

Technical Product Manager
Strategy Director

Smart Design hosted an event in our studio for NYTechWeek where Jamie Munger, Strategy Director, presented “AI and creativity: Embracing AI as our new creative partner.”

Tyler Sanborn, Product Manager, followed up by moderating a panel with Eva Kozanecka, Strategy Lead, Artists + Machine Intelligence (AMI) at Google, and Nathan Phillips, founder of DumDum, a creative consultancy. We spoke about how AI can augment creativity using several different lenses, whether it be identifying whitespace between disciplines that can be discovered, or helping with rapid prototyping on one’s own work.
