Special Track "AI and the Arts"


There is a growing interest in developing artificial intelligence
techniques that can have a role in the production of works of art.
Research in this field has already produced AI systems that can
produce outputs in fields such as music, fine arts, storytelling and
performance either autonomously or in collaboration with humans. The
main motivation for this special track is to explore how AI can help
in generating artistic works and how working in the arts helps in
moving forward the field of AI. Relating to this motivation we suggest
a number of questions that, among others, papers submitted to this
special track could look to address:

- In what way can AI give us an understanding of the human creative process?

- When building AI systems for producing creative artefacts should we
aim to mimic our own - creative behaviour, the behaviours we find in
nature, or design completely new mechanisms?

- Under what conditions could work produced solely by machine be
considered as art?

- What is the role of AI in producing systems that can inspire more of
us to engage with the creative process in order to produce art?

- What are the kinds of interactions with computational systems that
will inspire, provoke, and challenge us into meaningful creative
dialogues with machines?

- Are current value systems that humans use to experience and evaluate
art suitable for computer-created art, or are new value-systems

- How can AI help us re-conceptualise current methods of interaction
between computers and people so as to better encourage creative flow
and feedback?

- How can AI help develop our relationships with computers to
encourage new opportunities for experiencing both human- and
computer-generated creative artefacts?


Papers focusing on the interplay between AI and the arts, submitted to
this special track will be reviewed according to the same standards as
all other papers. The authors of accepted papers will additionally
have the option of showing a demo related to what they have presented
in the paper. In addition, submissions of demos without submitting a
full paper, as well as video submissions are also welcome. The demos
and videos will be reviewed according to the standards regarding demos
and video submissions of past IJCAI conferences. Please consult the
main IJCAI 2015 Call For Papers at
http://ijcai-15.org/index.php/call-for-papers for important dates,
detailed submission instructions, (including formatting guidelines and
electronic templates), review process, and important policies (on
multiple submissions, confidentiality and conflict of interest).
