The future is here, people. Robots are taking over the earth – from grocery store check-out to package delivery, accounting and logistics, people all over the world are losing work because of this mechanical menace. But design and creative pursuits will be safe. After all – a robot can’t create what doesn’t exist.
Weeellll it turns out that’s not entirely true. With tools such as Dall-E and Midjourney, artificial intelligence can create artworks and illustrations faster, cheaper, and with imagination. And including new technologies such as NFTs, where you are buying a creation that doesn’t even necessarily exist, and 3D printing, laser cutting, and other incredible machines the question of how relevant designers will be in the future is creeping ever closer.
What do these technologies actually mean for those in creative pursuits? What are their limitations and weakpoints? Are we safe? This is an open panel debate as part of an ongoing series talking about immersive technologies and design. Stay tuned for more events!
